Roma hosts the champion Juventus
Are you ready for another great Italian derby? We are going to watch one on Sunday when Roma hosts the champion Juventus at the beautiful Stadio Olimpico. This is a game from the 19th round of the Serie A. Let’s discuss it in our sure win prediction today.
Days before the derby against the champion, Roma’s confidence is hurt. In the previous round the Wolves brought some serious dissapointment to their fans, suffering a 0-2 defeat at home against Torino. It was just their third defeat for the season, but all of the fans expected a win against the Bulls.
Despite of the defeat, Roma are still in the Top 4 with 35 points, but the 5th Atalanta is just a point away. Roma are aware that a negative result against Juventus could kick them off from the Top 4.
What the manager Paulo Fonseca must do now is find what went wrong against Torino. Was it just underrestimating the opponent? Or maybe some bad tactical and lineup decisions? Fonseca didn’t have a lot of time to think, so let’s see what he’s going to change against the Old Lady.
Meanwhile Juventus started the new year with a bang, because they crushed the visiting Cagliari with 4-0 at home. Cristiano Ronaldo reminded us how good he is, scoring a hattrick. Now he has 13 goals in the league for the season. Gonzalo Higuain came in from the bench and added one more for Maurizio Sarri’s team. Most likely Higuain will start from the bench against Roma, though, because right now Sarri prefers Paulo Dybala as a partner for Ronaldo.
In our sure win prediction today we can conclude that Juventus are aware how tight the title race with Inter Milan is going to be. The Old Lady can’t make any mistakes right now, because Inter are very strong, too. In the same time Roma fight for their place in the Top 4 and they will play at one hundred percent, too. It’s going to be a great game.
