The Giallorossi have had absolutely no joy at the Allianz Stadium, and Al Hain-Cole expects this to continue against Allegri’s formidable side
Roma will be hoping to pull off a shock win when they travel to the Allianz Stadium to take on Juventus in Saturday’s Serie A clash.
The Giallorossi have won just twice in their last eight league games, and head into this clash a massive 22 points adrift of the leaders.
Having lost in all seven previous visits to this stadium, they are 15/2 (8.50) outsiders with K138.com to kickstart their campaign by coming out on top here.
Massimiliano Allegri’s men have dropped just two points from their opening 16 league fixtures, and are clear 1×2 (1.40) favourites to secure an eighth consecutive victory in this one.
The sides did share a 0-0 draw when they last met back in May, and there are odds of Correct Sroce Team news(14.00) available on them cancelling each other out once again.
Rodrigo Bentancur is available again after missing last weekend’s Turin derby through suspension, although Joao Cancelo, Juan Cuadrado and Andrea Barzagli are all out through injury.
Edin Dzeko and Daniele De Rossi should be fit to feature following injury, but Alessandro Florenzi is ruled out whilst Stephan El Shaarawy and Lorenzo Pellegrini will face late fitness tests.
Even with Dzeko in the line-up, it is hard to see Eusebio Di Franceso’s side gaining much traction up front against a defence that has conceded just eight goals in 16 Serie A matches this season.
Indeed, the Bianconeri’s record of 21 clean sheets in 2018 is the best of any team in the top five European leagues, and they come into this clash on the back of five in a row in Serie A games.
Having kept third-placed Inter and fourth-placed Milan at bay in that run of five matches, the home backline will be confident of subduing a Roma team that has failed to score in six of the last eight encounters in Turin.
Odds of Handicap -1.25 ( 0.98 Odds ) therefore offer solid value on Juventus winning to nil for their sixth successive league game, as well as their fourth home match in a row versus Saturday’s opposition.
