Roma – Juventus: which choice to make?
Last season, Roma managed to beat Juventus, but can we expect a feat from the Wolves on September 27 – we have prepared our forecast. Will the favor
ite take the glasses?
Last season, Roma were unable to fulfill the assigned tasks – the team of Paulo Fonseca was clearly trying to get a ticket to the Champions League, but failed. At the final stage of the championship, the Romans were not even a contender for a place in the top four, the leading group at the end of the first round went into a serious gap, and the “wolves” finished fifth.
The scandal ended the match of the first round of the new season, where Roma met with Verona at a party. The meeting ended in a goalless draw , but due to an annoying error in the registration of players for the tournament, the Romans lost this point, they were awarded a technical defeat 0: 3, which lowered them to 18th place in the table.
In that match, the Spaniard Pedro managed to make his debut for Roma , who passed as a free agent from Chelsea.
Last season, Juventus in Serie A fully justified the forecasts of the fans – the team headed at that time by Maurizio Sarri won the championship title again. However, this was the only title of the “old lady” of the season – in the Italian Super Cup, Juve lost to Lazio, in the Italian Cup they were stronger than Napoli.
The last straw for the leadership of Juventus was the departure of the team from the Champions League from Lyon, after which the fate of Sarri was sealed. The team was entrusted to Andrea Pirlo , under whom the squad was notably “cleaned up”, having got rid of a number of age players. In addition to the Brazilian Artur, who came from Barcelona, and Dejan Kulusevski , who was bought from Parma, the team was joined by his old friend Alvaro Morata .
In the first round of the championship, only the Swedish newcomer managed to make his debut, it was he who scored the first goal in the match with Sampdoria. The meeting ended in a 3-0 win for Juventus, which put him in second place in the table.

In the first round, Juventus appeared as a completely new team – Pirlo seriously renewed the composition, structure, and the mentor definitely puts his football to the Italian champion. While Juve’s game is far from perfect, mistakes are still present, but Roma is not perfect either – in the first round the Romans could not score a single goal.

In our opinion, the guests will take points and the match will not be effective. We offer a combined forecast – Juventus will not lose + total under 3.5 goals . In BC Winline, this outcome is offered with odds of 1.95
