This weekend hasn’t disappointed when it comes to high level action across European football, and we aren’t done yet. Monday nights are often reserved for chilling out after your first day back at work, but tomorrow, it’ll host one of the more intriguing games of the Serie A season so far. Top of the table Juventus are set to square off against bottom of the table Chievo, and that’s just a thrilling prospect in our mind. Why? Because the dynamic between the two teams means that it’ll almost certainly be can’t miss viewing.

Juventus

You have to wonder just how much of a priority Juventus will be making Serie A over the course of the next few months, as they already appear to have it signed, sealed and delivered. It’s clear to see that they’re going after the elusive treble this season and nobody can blame them for putting more emphasis on Europe, especially given their current advantage over Napoli. Either way, though, whoever starts for The Old Lady tomorrow will ensure that it’s as ugly as it possibly can be from a scoreline perspective.

Team News

Mario Mandzukic has a muscle problem and will be out until next month, with Douglas Costa being tipped to replace him in the starting XI despite being linked with a move away from the club.

Chievo

Chievo have actually shown some great improvements in recent weeks, although this is the definition of a step up in competition. They don’t really have anything to lose given their current situation, which begs the question of what kind of game plan do they have here? If they keep the scoreline down then they’ll be praised, but perhaps they’ve got a little bit more self belief than just that.

Team News

Emanuele Giaccherini will almost certainly start following the sale of Birsa, with Riccardo Meggiorini and Sergio Pellissier being tipped to start in the kind of game that needs a couple of experienced heads.

Factors to Consider

  • The game will be played at Juventus’ Juventus Stadium.
  • Juventus have won five and drawn one of their last six games.
  • Chievo have won one, drawn three and lost two of their last six games.
  • Juventus have scored nine goals and conceded three in their last six games.
  • Chievo have scored four goals and conceded six in their last six games.

Conclusion

There’s only one way this is going in our mind, and it’s going to be a Juventus win. However, we don’t think it’s going to be quite as simple or easy as many fans are expecting it to be. We can see Chievo throwing caution to the wind and trying to frustrate Juve, who will likely score early and then sit back on their lead. They’ll keep it going all the way through until the dying embers of the game when the home side will score a second, but even if that happens, there’s no shame in losing a game like this for Chievo.
