The two Italian giants lock horns in the final fixture of the 2017 International Champions Cup.

The teams played two matches in the competition so far and share similar stats after a win and a loss.

Roma were beaten in penalties by PSG in their first match after the scores were level at 1-1. Then, an improved performance helped them to get the better of Tottenham in the five goal thriller which ended in 3-2 scoreline.

Juve lost to Barcelona 1-2 in their first match, completely overrun by two stunning goals from Neymar. They put on a better showing in the second match against PSG. It was an absolute thriller that saw five goals. Claudio Marchisio scored twice for the Old Lady, including the winner in 89th minute.

It is quite evident that both teams are struggling in defense and it is untypical for Italian clubs to concede this many goals.

Roma vs Juventus: Head-to-head

The Giallorossi have managed to pull things even with Juventus in recent head-to-head clashes as they won 2 and lost 2 from the last four meetings.

The two Serie A meetings of the 2016/17 season started off with Juve edging a 1-0 win at Turin, but Roma had the revenge with a 3-1 win at the Stadio Olimpico.

Roma vs Juventus: Predictions

On another day, this duel will be a title clash or as intense as a high profile derby. With teams still in the pre-season and working their way up in fitness, this one could be less intense. And there is little doubt that both managers will use the occasion to give as many players a run-out in the green turf.

However, neutrals won’t be disappointed as this match promise plenty of goals. Nonetheless, this has been case in most of the International Champions Cup matches.
