Juventus vs Roma

, KO: 19:45 Oct 17, 2021, Allianz Stadium
Roma

Juventus look set continue their recent rise up the table as they host Roma in an Italian Serie A fixture at the Allianz Stadium. The Turin club were in good form before the international break and will fancy their chances against Roma who have struggled away from home.

Juventus went into the international break with a 1-0 victory over local rivals Torino in the Turin derby. They were made to work hard for the win with Manuel Locatelli's effort four minutes from time proving to be the difference.

After enduring a difficult start to the season, manager Massimiliano Allegri appears to finally be getting the best out of his team. Juventus are unbeaten in their last six matches across all competitions, claiming five wins in that run.

Juventus are also on a three-match winning run in Serie A and claimed a 3-2 victory over Sampdoria in their last fixture at the Allianz Stadium. They are likely to be further boosted by the return of striker Paulo Dybala, who has missed the last two matches due to injury.

Roma are also coming off a victory as they triumphed 2-0 over Empoli in their previous Serie A fixture. Goals either side of the break from Lorenzo Pellegrini and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were enough to seal the win.

Things have been relatively smooth during manager Jose Mourinho’s time in the capital with Roma claiming five wins from seven Serie A matches this season. They are currently fourth on the table, six points behind leaders Napoli.

Roma have lost just twice in Serie A this season with both defeats coming on their travels. They were beaten 3-2 by Verona before suffering a similar defeat to better rivals Lazio in the Rome derby.

How the bookies view it

Juventus have the edge among the bookies and are priced at 10/11 by betway to claim the win. A victory for Roma is valued at 16/5 by betfair while SBK is offering 27/10 for a draw.

Head to head

Juventus have 29 wins and 17 draws while Roma have triumphed 15 times from 61 previous matches. The Turin club were unbeaten in this fixture last season, playing out a 2-2 draw in Rome before earning a 2-0 victory at the Allianz Stadium.

Players to watch

The return of Paulo Dybala is likely to be a major boost for Juventus with the striker scoring two goals in his last four matches. He could be worth a punt to score anytime at 39/25 with Sporting Index.

Midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini has four goals in six matches for Roma and is priced at 10/3 by bet365 to score anytime. Striker Tammy Abraham has found the net twice and could be worth keeping an eye on in the same market at 12/5 with betway.

Anything else catch the eye?

There have been over 4.5 goals in Roma's last two away matches and a similar outcome is priced at 22/5 by BetVictor. Over 3.5 goals could also be considered at 17/10 with SBK.

Juventus have scored in both halves in two of their last three Serie A matches and a repeat is valued at 13/8 with Skybet.
