Juventus is living their best moment of form in terms of their defensive consistency, not having conceded a single goal on their last 6 matches, so Genoa will have added difficulties on this trip to the Allianz Stadium.
In the league, the Vecchia Signora is the team that is leading at half-time more often, more precisely in 11 out of their 17 matches.
That’s what I expect in this match: a strong start from Juventus, getting in the scoresheet earlier than their opponent, also giving continuity to their good defensive performance.
