Juventus vs Spal
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK/18:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Stadium (Turin).
Juve has been on a roll after Ronaldo’s arrival. They are the only team unbeaten in the league. With 11 wins and a draw in this season, they are comfortable at the top of the table with 34 points. A league-best 26 goals have been scored and only 8 has been conceded.
Allegri is possibly looking at another Seria A title as manager. The Old Lady will have an easy game against their opponents for Saturday, making it 4 wins in a row.
A 7 match unbeaten streak at home was broken by Manchester United in the last UCL fixture played here due to defensive errors. But the team from Turin came back with a win over Milan in the following league match.
In 5 of the last 6 home games of the reigning champs over 2.5 goals were scored in total.
Spal survived a possible relegation last year as they finished 17th; just above the red zone. They are showing signs of a repeat of that sorry performance this year too. At the moment they are 15th in the table with 7 defeats in 12 league games so far. They are weak in both scoring and defending, conceding 19 and scoring 11 only.
This upcoming match against the Giants will be a test for Semplici and his team, who are on a 3 match winless streak which has 2 losses in it.
A score having more than 2.5 goals were produced in 5 of their last 6 competitive fixtures.
In their away season they only have 1 win, a shocker against Roma. But apart from that result, they lost 4 of their last 5 matches on the road.
So Spal is looking at a possible defeat at the hands of Cristiano and company. But considering the fact that Juve has problems in their defense recently, consolation is possible. That’s the best they can get from this game on Saturday.
Juventus vs Spal: Head-to-head (h2h)
- These teams played each other in only 2 h2h matches.
- Juventus are unbeaten in those 2 games which include 1 win.
- Over 4.5 goals came in 1 match played at Turin which the hosts won 4-1.
Juventus vs Spal: Prediction
There is no doubt about the strength of the Italian Champions. They will build from the back, and the Spal keeper will be tested multiple times. So we can expect goals in the first half itself. Once they get the lead, there is no way Spal can get back in the game. So I think this will be a one-sided affair. Hence a bet can be placed on Juve to win at both half-time and full-time with 1.53 odd.
Over 2.5 goals came in the last 4 home fixtures of Juventus in all competitions. The same trend is followed by Spal in 3 of their last 4 league games on the road. Half of the league games played by both the teams had more than 2.5 goals in total. So we can bet on a similar score with over 2.5 goals in this match with 1.57 odd.
