Juventus will face Mourinho’s AS Roma on Sunday evening at the Stadio Olimpico. Roma are 3 points behind the Bianconeri in Serie A and seem a direct competitor for the Champions League spots. Max Statman gives you a match preview and the probable starting eleven.
Giorgio Chiellini has recovered from COVID-19 and will be back in the squad. Kaio Jorge and Pellegrini have rejoined the group on the training field and are also available. Allegri admitted Pellegrini isn’t ready to play a full game yet.
According to what we heard at Allegri’s pre-match press conference, Alex Sandro is going to be out on Sunday and Cuadrado with De Sciglio should both start against Roma. Allegri is suspended for tomorrow’s game after making offensive expressions towards the referee after the match vs. Napoli.
Max Statman’s predicted XI:
(4-3-3): Szczęsny; Cuadrado, De Ligt, Rugani, De Sciglio; McKennie, Locatelli, Rabiot; Chiesa, Morata, Dybala
Record vs. Roma
Juventus have played Roma 97 times away from home. The Bianconeri won 28 of those, drew 34 and lost 35. That puts Juventus’s win ratio at almost 29% against Roma away from home.
Juve’s latest visit to the Olimpico to face the Giallorossi ended in a draw. Cristiano Ronaldo scored a brace for the visitors, while Jordan Veretout scored both goals for the home side.
The Bianconeri beat Roma at the Allianz Stadium earlier this season, after a hard fought battle. Moise Kean scored the winner for Juve in the first half. Szczęsny saved a penalty and was Max Statman’s man of the match.
