Juventus Match Betting News
Juventus continued their wonderful run of form by claiming a 3-1 victory over Torino in the derby last weekend and the result further strengthened the Old Lady’s grip at the top of the table.
At this moment in time, Juventus once again look odds on favourites to defend their title but they cannot afford to get complacent anytime soon, especially this weekend.
Juventus will be playing hosts to rivals Roma on Saturday and one can be sure that Max Allegri will desperately want his side to claim all three points from the encounter to create a healthy cushion between themselves and the chasing pack in the Serie A standings.
Rolando Mandragora, Marko Pjaca, Andrea Barzagli, Leonardo Bonucci and Daniel Alves are the players who remain ruled out for the clash.
Roma Match Betting News
Following a shaky start, Roma have recovered in fine fashion and the 1-0 victory over AC Milan last time out boosted the Giallorossi’s title aspirations.
The result against Milan was most certainly a huge morale booster and now Roma head into arguably their biggest game of the season this weekend as they prepare to square off against rivals and league leaders Juventus away from home.
Abdullahi Nura, Alessandro Florenzi, Leandro Daniel Paredes, Mohamed Salah and Bruno Peres are all struggling with injury problems at the moment while Kevin Strootman will be unavailable due to suspension.

All things considered, Juventus perhaps head into the clash as favourites considering their impeccable form at home and a it looks like the Old Lady should be able to claim the three points on the night.
