Chievo Verona vs Juventus – Serie A: Chievo is a team that is fighting to avoid relegation
Although at this stage, they have about 6 more points than the first team on the relegation zone. They already had a much bigger advantage than the one they currently have.
The team is winless for 7 rounds in the league, and on those 7 matches, they’ve only gotten 2 draws at home. They are a team that is going through the worst streak of the season and now they will face the champions Juventus.
They have some experienced players, but in terms of individual quality, there aren’t many players who stand out from this team. Chievo comes into this match coming off an heavy loss (5-1) suffered in Rome against Lazio.
Juventus are the current Serie A’s champions and the team that doesn’t give upo n the title fight, putting pressure on Napoli with everything they have. They are only 1 point behind and they know that they can’t let the Neapolitans escape.
Juventus is coming off a great streak of victories, being with 5 consecutive wins at the moment and winning another 2 Coppa Italia matches in the middle of it. On the defensive chapter, Juventus has also been strong, like they usually are.
On the last 5 matches they’ve played, they have only conceded 1gaol and they have kept a clean sheet for 3 consecutive matches.
They are coming off a 1-0 victory at home against Genoa, on a somewhat tricky match but where they were deprived of many players due to injury, such as Alex Sandro, Dybala or Cuadrado. It was Douglas Costa who solved the match.
Chievo Verona vs Juventus – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Juventus has a not very complicated trip here in my opinion and therefore, I believe that they will get the 3 points on this visit to Chievo.
The home side is on a less positive streak, being on a small crisis in terms of results, since they haven’t won for 7 matches.
This visit of Juventus doesn’t come at a good time and it will be tough for Chievo to get points again, against an opponent that is playing well and on the title fight.
Juventus should play with attitude and playing first on this round, they will surely want to win and put pressure on Napoli, that plays at home on the following day.
Juventus usually is successful in Chievo and I expect another win for the Italian champions.
