Desperate to claim a welcomed Serie A boost on Sunday lunchtime, Juventus will welcome Frosinone to Turin this weekend.

Juventus

Starting with the hosts, while Juventus might have come flying out of the traps when opening up the 2023/24 campaign, the Italian icons are enduring a recent wobble. Missing out on what they had billed as a potential opportunity last weekend as they eventually had to settle for a 2-2 stalemate away at Verona, the Old Lady are without a win from any of their previous four Serie A appearances on the spin. Collecting just a pair of points on that four-match wobble, Massimiliano Allegri’s side will know the importance of claiming a crucial response here. Nevertheless, while Juventus might open this weekend’s fixtures sat six points adrift of leaders Inter Milan, the former Serie A champions are still sat firmly in the driving seat to claim a lucrative Champions League return in 2024.

Still dealing with a long-term knee injury and not making a single appearance across any competition so far this season, Juventus will once again be without Mattia De Sciglio on Sunday lunchtime. Likewise, 23-year-old striker Moise Kean is seen as a major doubt due to a recent shin issue.

Finding the net against Verona last week and registering seven goals in as many domestic appearances, Serbia international Dusan Vlahovic will spearhead Juventus’ charge here. Despite dealing with fitness issues this season, Federico Chiesa could be handed a full recall in Turin.

Frosinone

As for the visitors, although Frosinone might have claimed a crucial 3-1 victory against Cagliari last month, it appears that was just a minor boost for the Canaries. Last seen putting in a nightmare performance on home soil as they slumped to a routine 3-0 drumming at the hands of Roma, Eusebio Di Francesco’s men are certainly looking over their shoulder at a looming relegation scrap. Opening Sunday’s showdown sat holding just a three-point buffer from slipping into the drop zone, the Lazio-based outfit have recorded just a single win from any of their previous 10 straight appearances across all competitions. Likewise, gaining a reputation for their glaring defensive struggles and losing their last three Serie A showdown by an aggregate score of 11-3, Frosinone will be bracing themselves for a heavyweight challenge here.

Team News

Still dealing with a stacked injury list, Frosinone will travel to Turin without the likes of Kevin Bonifazi, Marvin Cuni, Fares Ghedjemis, Luca Garritano, Anthony Oyono and Nadir Zortea. However, after serving a one-match suspension against Roma last week, veteran defender Simone Romagnoli is free to feature here.

Bagging a trio of Serie A strikes after completing a season-long loan switch from Juventus over the summer, Kaio Jorge could feature against his parent club this weekend. Former AC Milan starlet Marco Brescianini will partner Luca Mazzitelli at the heart of Francesco’s midfield.

Key Factors to Consider

    • When Juventus and Frosinone met for their reverse Serie A showdown back on December 23rd, the Old Lady picked up a 2-1 victory at the Stadio Benito Stirpe.
    • In fact, Juventus have won all of their last four Serie A meetings against Sunday’s guests by an aggregate score of 9-1.
    • Frosinone have secured just a single victory from any of their previous 10 domestic appearances.
    • Likewise, Francesco’s struggling squad have lost their last three Serie A showdowns by an aggregate score of 11-3.
    • Serbian international striker Dusan Vlahovic has bagged six goals in as many domestic appearances.

    Conclusion

    In the midst of a four-match winless rut, there is no doubt that Juventus will know the importance of making a Serie A statement here. Clinching a 2-1 victory when they travelled to the Stadio Benito Stirpe back on December 23rd, the Old Lady should be smelling a golden opportunity this weekend. Winning all of their last four top-flight battles against Frosinone by an aggregate score of 11-3, the former Italian champions are rightfully tipped as a runaway contender on Sunday lunchtime. With the Canaries gaining a real reputation for their glaring defensive struggles this season, the red-hot Vlahovic will be looking to extend on his recent purple patch in Turin.
