Roma vs Juventus
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 12 May 2019
Kick-Off 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Stadio Olimpico (Turin).
Roma halted their push for the Champions League football with a disappointing 1-1 draw away at Genoa in the previous round. They conceded a late equalizer in the first minute of the added time at Stadio Comunale Luuigi Ferraris.
The Romans are now level on points with Milan at fifth place of the league ladder. Fourth-placed Atalanta are three points above, meaning La Lupa do not have room for mistake in three remaining matches of the season.
Claudio Ranieri’s men are set to play host to Juventus on Sunday evening at Stadio Olimpico.
The match with Bianconeri comes at the right time for the hosts as Juve have nothing but pride to play for. The visitors have already secured the new Scudetto title three weeks ago when they dispatched Fiorentina 2-1 at home. They’ve drawn 1-1 to Inter Milan and Torino since.
Roma vs Juventus: Head-to-head
Judging by the latest head to head tradition in this match-up, we could be in for a low-scoring contest here.
Only one of past seven head to head affairs between these two likes produced three or more goals.
Juve celebrated a narrow 1-0 victory when teams locked horns in this term of Serie A back in late-December last year.
Roma vs Juventus: Prediction
Claudio Ranieri has managed to improve Roma’s defensive displays since taking over Eusebio Di Francesco on the bench. La Lupa shipped just two goals in last five league games even though they played the likes of Sampdoria and Inter Milan in the process.
Juventus own competition’s best defensive record with only 25 goals allowed in 35 matches. Just one of past seven head to head encounters between the two sides saw three or more goals scored.
We do not need anything else to say Under 2.5 goals FT is a must-take bet at the sky-high 2.10 odds. You can also try with draw at the half time at the odds of 2.25.
