Juventus – Verona Match Prediction | 22-09-2019 12:00

And what makes it even the more interesting is that Juventus next three opponents Hellas Verona, Brescia and SPAL are all teams that will likely be in the bottom half of the Serie A table, if not trying to avoid relegation, come the latter months of the season. That means we get to see whether or not one of Maurizio Sarris biggest perceived weaknesses as a manager, the ability to rotate his squad when the schedule gets hectic, will be tested.

With Verona losing their last nine away trips to Juve, we see them trying to keep the score down before moving onto more balanced games to come. Last season Juve failed to score four goals in any home game, while they saw under 3.5 goals in 84% of their Serie A matches. Given that form, we are backing the hosts to win this clash with under 3.5 goals scored.

League Table

They like to keep things as tight as possible and build on solid defensive play. They have seen just four goals in their opening three games, a 1-1 draw, a 1-0 win and a 1-0 defeat. That will be the game plan, and if Juventus take their eye off the ball here just slightly, it gives Verona the chance to try and hold them.

Dybala has appeared in two games off the bench one in Serie A, the other being against Atltico Madrid in the Champions League group stage opener this past Wednesday. And thats after playing less than 100 minutes in the Copa America with Argentina over the summer. In those two games, Dybala has played a combined 30 minutes. Dybalas season to date and were talking about on-field stuff, not the whole transfer saga part of the summer where it looked like he might be headed to the Premier League has been more about how he hasnt played rather than what hes done to help Juventus win. Thirty!

The Bianconeri have turned their stadium into a real fortress and seeing that Hellas Verona are seen as one of the main candidates to suffer relegation to the Serie B at the end of the season, we are positive that the title holders are going to pick up all three points from Saturdays football game. After dropping two points in a goalless draw with Fiorentina at Stadio Artemio Franchi, Juventus will be looking to return to winning ways in the Serie A when they host Hellas Verona at their Allianz Stadium.

That means that Juve are coming off back to back draws going into this weekends game. Will they end that run, or will Sarris issues continue in Turin? Maurizio Sarris men drew 2-2 at Atletico Madrid on Wednesday, a credible result had they not been coasting towards a victory. After throwing away a 2-0 lead in midweek, Juventus return to league action on Saturday looking to put things right.

Juventus v Verona Match Preview & Lineups

It will be tough for them to even come close to outscoring the champs especially on their home pitch, and I believe that they know that, but still, they wont give up so easily, and will surely fight until the last whistle. In their 5 last matches in all competitions, they won 1, lost 3 and drew 1. Verona, also called the Yellow and Blues in Italy recorded a mixed bag of results lately. goal difference. They arent doing the best in the league either, and are currently placed 11th in the group standings with 4 points and 2:2.

Thats not exactly a huge total, but if it stays like that going forward the next couple of weeks, then there will only continue to be worries about Sarris ability to rotate his squad. And, with three straight game against teams that are far from what you would consider top-of-the-table challengers, Sarri has the chance to avoid that being the case to start out his tenure at Juventus. It was a major talking point during his one season at Chelsea. Nine players have started all three of the first three Serie A games this season. It was a major talking point during his tenure at Napoli as well.

Ill have them in -2 Asian Handicap and pick them to win with over 2.5 goals. Juventus have flawless home record vs Verona and I expect them to extend that streak with ease. Although media dont have Adrien Rabiot or Aaron Ramsey in the XI, Maurizio Sarri might give them a nod, and we should see Bianconeri in attacking mood from the get-go.

Three games into the Serie A season and Juventus have started their title defence well. This week Juve stride into Europe and begin their Champions League quest with a tough away game in Spain against Atletico Madrid, certainly not an easy trip. However, they will probably be a little annoyed to have been held by Fiorentina last weekend, a team that have only picked up that point so far, with losses elsewhere.
