Doubtful: Angel Di Maria, Wojciech Szczesny



Suspended: None

Injured: Nicolo Zaniolo, Georginio Wijnaldum, Ebrima Darboe


Doubtful: None



Suspended: None


Probable Lineups:



Juventus Predicted XI (4-3-3): Mattia Perin, Mattia De Sciglio, Leonardo Bonucci, Gleison Bremer, Alex Sandro, Weston McKennie, Manuel Locatelli, Adrien Rabiot, Moise Kean, Dusan Vlahovic, Filip Kostic

Roma Predicted XI (3-4-2-1): Rui Patricio, Gianluca Mancini, Chris Smalling, Roger Ibanez, Rick Karsdorp, Lorenzo Pellegrini, Bryan Cristante, Leonardo Spinazzola, Paulo Dybala, Stephan El Shaarawy, Tammy Abraham





Head to Head:


In 34 head-to-head encounters between the two sides, Juventus hold a clear advantage. They have won 21 games, lost eight and drawn five.


The two clubs last faced each other earlier this year in Serie A, with Juventus beating Roma 4-3. Goals from Paulo Dybala, Manuel Locatelli, Dejan Kulusevski and full-back Mattia De Sciglio secured victory for Juventus. Although it would be interesting to see Dybala returning for his first game at Allianz stadium since his move to capital club AS Roma.

A Fact about the Opponents:


Initially, the city of Rome had 4 football teams. It was the idea of Italo Foschi, who was the Roman representative of the ruling National Fascist Party to merge all these 4 clubs in order to give the Italian capital a strong club to rival that of the more dominant Northern Italian clubs of the time. In the spring of 1927, a new roman club AS Roma was founded. However, only 3 out of 4 roman clubs agreed for the merger, namely Roman SC, SS Alba Audace and Fortitudo- Pro Roma GS. The other club resisted the merger because of the intervention of the army General Vaccaro, who was also the member of Italian Football Federation on the common request of club fans as they felt their ideology never matched the other 3 clubs. That club was none other than SS Lazio, and this fiasco led to the creation of one of the most heated derby in Italy, the Derby Della Capitale.
