Juventus – Roma: prediction “under 2.5”

The third round of Serie A offers a lot of interesting matches and one mega-event in each of the three days of the weekend. However, the highlight of the program is undoubtedly Juventus – Roma. The two teams go into contention for the three points in Turin, having started the new campaign relatively well. Unfortunately, we won’t see three of the new signings in either camp in action, namely stars Paul Pogba, Angel Di Maria and Georginio Wijnaldum. Even without them, however, the clash promises exciting events on the pitch, although I don’t think they will involve many goals.

In the first round, both majors started with expected victories. Juventus welcomed Sassuolo at home in the last match of the opening round. The “Bianconeri” easily reached the three points after the classic 3:0 with a goal from Di Maria and two from Vlahovic. The interesting thing in this match was that the guests had more inaccurate and accurate shots, but they never scored. Roma, on the other hand, visited Salernitana, who narrowly escaped. “Wolves” were in absolute control of the match, but trembled until the end after Brian Cristante’s only goal in the 33rd minute.

The first shoot of Juventus on the way to the championship title was not late. A week after the start of the new season, the Bianconeri failed to sign off, but kept a second consecutive clean sheet. Sampdoria’s visit to Genoa ended goalless, with Rabiot’s goal canceled out in the second half. Roma again played with a team that will fight for its survival. The novice Cremonese arrived in Rome. The Wolves took a total of 27 shots, 12 of which were on target, but in the end they narrowly won again with a goal this time by Smalling.

The last edition of this rivalry offered seven goals and a 4-3 success for Juventus at the Olimpico. However, it is relatively rare for these two teams to offer a high-scoring matchup. Six of the last seven Serie A matches in Turin have ended with under 2.5 goals, and in four of them Juventus have won 1-0. Again, I expect few goals as we see difficulties in front of goal for both teams, although chances are not lacking. At the same time, however, they are bidding for a strong defensive season, which Allegri and Mourinho are undoubtedly capable of.
