Hellas Verona is hosting Juventus at Marc Antonio Bentegodi in round 11 of the Italian Serie A. Verona has had some outstanding results as of late, but I think that when they come down crashing, they will crash all the way. Juventus has ended their undefeated streak against Sassuolo, and it was quite unexpected I might add.
Thanks to losing only 1 of their last 7 games, Verona has climbed the standings to 10th place with 12 points, and they have scored impressive 22 goals. Their defense wasn’t nearly as impressive, and they have conceded 19 goals so far. Simeone is the leading goalscorer for Verona with 6 goals, while Barak added 4 goals. Caprari has 4 assists. All their key players are available for this match, and coach Tudor will need to pick his best options to start this game. Verona was playing against Udinese on the road in their last game, and they have had 6% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a solid 84% of the correct passes. Verona has conceded in the 3rd minute of this game, and it took them a long time to get back into this game, but they succeeded in the 83rd minute. Unfortunately for Verona, there wasn’t enough time for them to score another goal, and the final score was 1-1. Verona is far away from the relegation zone, and I think they will stay somewhere around this spot because they are a good team, and they are playing really well right now.
Juventus is still outside the top 4, now in 7th place with 5 points. Juventus is more or less an average team this season with 14 scored goals and 13 conceded goals, and it seems no one can replace Ronaldo’s impact on this team. The good news for Juventus is they are doing a great job in the Champions League, and I just hope their recent loss will not have a bad impact on their form. Juventus was hosting Sassuolo earlier this week, and despite being the better team with 56% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 88% of the correct passes, Juventus have lost this game 1-2 by a goal in the 95th minute. You know a team has a problem in their attacking end when your leading goalscorer has only 3 goals, and that is Dybala for Juventus. Dybala has also added 3 assists. Bernardeschi and De Sciglio are both injured. The Serie A is not working well for Juventus this season, and they are now under investigation because of some shady transfer deals, and that could be a huge problem for this team.
I know Verona is playing well, I know Verona is scoring a ton of goals, and they might get on the scoreboard here, but Juventus is still Juventus. we are getting the better team for a great price, and I will take it.
