AS Roma vs Juventus

, KO: 19:45 May 5, 2024, Stadio Olimpico
Juventus

A closely fought encounter is expected here as Roma and Juventus square off in a Serie A fixture on Sunday. Both teams appear evenly matched at the moment and could be set to cancel each other out in this one.

With five teams now going to the Champions League from Serie A, the task for fifth placed Roma in the final weeks of the season will be to fend off the likes of Atalanta and Lazio. It may do them good to get the slot from the Serie A standings as a Europa League entry now looks like a long shot after suffering a 2-0 home defeat to Bayer Leverkusen in the semi-final first leg on Thursday.

Roma’s recent Serie A form has been a bit patchy having picked up three wins from their last six matches. Danielle De Rossi’s men battled to a 2-2 draw at Napoli in their previous fixture.

It has been a tricky campaign for Juventus but they have a chance to end things on a positive note. Sitting third on the standings, they are likely to secure a return to the Champions League while there is also a chance to play for some silverware, with a Coppa Italia final against Atalanta coming up in the middle of May.

Juventus may appear to have good things going for them but have been a bit unconvincing in recent weeks. Massimiliano Allegri’s men are winless in their last four matches, playing out three draws in that run, including a 0-0 scoreline with AC Milan last time out.

How the bookies view it: Very little to separate both teams

The bookies appear to be expecting a closely fought contest with a win for Roma priced at 15/8 by bet365 while a Juventus victory is valued at 17/10 with BoyleSports. A draw is set at odds of 11/5 by 888Sport.

Head to head: History favours the Old Lady

Juventus have a 32-17 advantage with 19 draws from 69 previous matches against Roma. The Turin club have also won four of the last six meetings and picked up a 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in December.

Players to watch: Dusan Vlahovic is always the man for Juventus

Dusan Vlahovic has been involved in much of Juventus’ attacking play lately and should be the one to watch on Sunday. The Serbian striker has 16 Serie A goals and is priced at 9/4 by bet365 to get on the score sheet.

Paulo Dybala will be keen to get one over on his former club and with 13 Serie A goals this season, could be worth keeping an eye on. The forward is priced at 3/1 to find the net on Sunday.

Probable lineups

Roma have no major injury worries and Tammy Abraham is likely to be handed a start after coming off the bench to score last time out at Napoli. Federico Chiesa was also a substitute for Juventus against AC Milan and could return to the starting lineup on Sunday.

Roma: Svilar, Angelino, Smalling, Mancini, Karsdorp, Pellegrini, Cristante, Paredes, Dybala, El Shaarawy, Abraham.
Juventus: Szczesny, Gatti, Danilo, Bremer, Rabiot, Locatelli, McKennie, Alex Sandro, Weah, Chiesa, Vlahovic.

Anything else catch the eye? Vulnerable backlines favour attackers

Neither Roma nor Juventus has been convincing at the back lately and both teams could be backed to score at evens with 888Sport. The Capital club saw over 3.5 goals last time out at Napoli and a repeat is priced at 15/4 with BetVictor while BoyleSports is offering 11/8 for over 2.5 goals.

Both teams have been level at the break in three of their last four meetings, so a halftime draw could be considered at 21/20 with 888Sport.

This match between AS Roma and Juventus will be played on May 5, 2024 and kick off at 19:45. Check below for our tipsters best AS Roma vs Juventus prediction. You may also visit our dedicated betting previews section for the most up to date previews.
