Juventus is welcoming Hellas Verona to Allianz Stadium in round 5 in the Italian Serie A.
Juventus hasn’t lost any of their last 7 games, while winning 5 of those 7 games, including the Champions League game against Dynamo Kyiv earlier this week. Juventus was without Ronaldo in their last 2 games, but they are scoring a solid amount of goals, and that amount should only go up when Ronaldo is back. In Serie A, Juventus is in 5th place with 8 points, 9 scored goals, and 3 conceded goals so far. Ronaldo is the leading goalscorer for Juventus with 3 goals, while Chiesa, Ramsey, and Danilo each added 1 assist. Chiesa will miss this game because of the red card, while De Ligt, Sandro, McKennie, and Chiellini are all injured, Ronaldo is still in quarantine, be he should be ready after this match. In their last Serie A game against Crotone on the road, Juventus has had 54% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and a solid 87% of the correct passes. Juventus was losing in the 12th minute, but they tied the score in the 21st minute. The final score of this match was 1-1. Juventus’ only goal once again is the Champions League, and they started well, but we will see if they are good enough and if coach Pirlo is good enough to take them all the way in the Champions League.
Verona is in decent form, and they have lost only 1 game so far this season. With 7 points, 4 scored goals, and only 1 conceded goal so far, Verona is in 7th place in the Serie A standings. Verona is the defensive team, and there aren’t many teams in Serie A that Verona will dominate with possession, but their counterattacks are good, and that is their main weapon. In their latest Serie A game against Genoa at home, Verona was the dominant team with 58% of ball possession, 10 shots on goal, 14 corner kicks, and a solid 82% of the correct passes. Verona was attacking, creating chances, and they were dangerous, but not dangerous enough. This match ended in a 0-0 draw. Favilli is the only goalscorer for Verona with 1 goal, while the other 3 goals were awarded to Verona in their first win after Roma made a technical mistake. Danzi, Benassi, Dawidowicz, Cetin, and Veloso are all injured, while Gunter and Barak are in quarantine. Verona has a lot of injury problems and playing against Juventus right now does not go in their favor.
The trends are heavily on Juventus’ side in this matchup, and Juventus hasn’t lost any of their last 11 home games. Juventus is on a 4-game winning streak at home. Verona has a lot of injuries, but so does Juventus, the only difference is that Juventus has more depth and quality on the bench. I’m taking Juventus at home.
