Juventus have been in great form in recent weeks managing to maintain their lead at the top of table by 4 points against Roma; and victory here tonight can’t further extend their lead as they head into the Christmas break in the Serie A after this game. Juventus have been in good scoring form managing to find the back of the net in all bar 2 games so far this campaign across all competitions. Juventus will look to their key hit-man Higuain to find the back of the net, after he scored a brace last weekend. Their back up options including Dybala, Manduzkic, Cuadrado, Marchisio, Khedira have all been attacking and that gives plenty of attacking options for Juventus to manage to find the back of the defense. However, Juventus are facing several injury problems with Bonucci (2 months out), Barzagli (1 month), Alves (3 months), and Benatia (2 weeks). They have now conceded goals in 8 out of their last 9 league games due to all these injury problems.
Roma come into this game in great form after beating the major rivals so far this season in Milan, Lazio, Napoli and Inter already and will fancy their chances traveling to take on this leaking Juventus side. With Dzeko, Perotti, El Sharaaawy, Falque, Totti among their attacking options; they can put anyone in front to take on the counter attack to try and win. Their fastest player Salah is missing, and he would have been extremely useful to go on the counter attacking against Juventus much like Torino did when they scored the first goal last weekend.
Both these sides are the top scoring sides in the Serie A; so it should be no surprise that we expect goals when both these sides take on each other.
Both teams are looking to push for the title and because of that I expect an extremely attacking game.
Over 2.5 goals.
