While Premier League fans may be upset about the lack of football on this weekend in comparison to the usual full set of fixtures, other top leagues around Europe will be there to pick up the pieces – including Serie A. Today we’ll be taking a look at Hellas Verona vs Juventus in a game that could serve as a bit of a banana skin for the reigning champions. The Old Lady are going well in the league but have had a few slip-ups, whereas Verona look better than they have done in years.

Verona

While they may have had their greatest day back in 1985 upon winning the Serie A title, Verona have been taking steps towards rebuilding their legacy. While they may be a bit further back from the top five than they’d like, they certainly have every chance at finishing in the top half and working their way up from there. It’s going to take time for the to establish themselves as a consistent top tier club, but from their control in midfield to their defensive work, things are looking up.

Team News

Amrabat is set to be made available in the middle of the park with Pessina also being tipped to return. Dawidowicz should also feature at the back with Gunter dropping out.

Juventus

Juventus are desperate for European glory, but this season, they’ve had a bit more resistance than usual in the race for the Serie A title. Their strength in depth will always make them favourites in any title race, but it does feel like they’ve suffered from a bit of complacency since the arrival of Maurizio Sarri. That seems odd to say given their overwhelming success on a year by year basis, but it all comes down to silverware with the Italian giants.

Team News

Chiellini, Danilo, Khedira and Demiral are all still out of action through injury with Aaron Ramsey being tipped to start and Dybala also being in the running to feature as they attempt to pull clear of title rivals Inter Milan.

Factors to Consider

  • In their last meeting earlier this season, Juventus beat Verona 2-1.
  • Verona have won three and drawn three of their last six games.
  • Juventus have won five and lost one of their last six games.
  • Verona have scored nine goals and conceded three in their last six games.
  • Juventus have scored 15 goals and conceded five in their last six games.

Conclusion

Verona will go for it against Juventus, and so they should. They’ve been on a great run of form as of late, they’ve given them issues in the past, and they won’t really find any reason to be afraid of them. Still, if we’re talking about this from a quality perspective, we think Juve will just have enough to get themselves over the finish line. They’ve got such great attacking depth and we’re convinced that’ll be enough to overcome the tactical consistency of Verona.
