Our Prediction:

Juventus will win

Juventus – Verona Match Prediction | 22-09-2019 12:00

Ultimately, we think Juventus will be slightly too strong for their visitors, but backing Verona on the +2 handicap line is something we like, in the hope they can either keep this down to a narrow defeat or maybe even nick a point. We also fancy a lack of goals here as Verona continue to stay strong at the back, and we will also be backing under 2.5 goals with this in mind.

They will certainly prioritise the game in Madrid, and could rest a few players for this one when they return home, which may give Verona the chance to keep this really tight. While the league is a big thing for Juventus, winning the Champions League could be even bigger, and the whole reason why Cristiano Ronaldo was brought into the team.

Serie A Offers & Bonuses

Three games into the Serie A season and Juventus have started their title defence well. This week Juve stride into Europe and begin their Champions League quest with a tough away game in Spain against Atletico Madrid, certainly not an easy trip. However, they will probably be a little annoyed to have been held by Fiorentina last weekend, a team that have only picked up that point so far, with losses elsewhere.

And what makes it even the more interesting is that Juventus next three opponents Hellas Verona, Brescia and SPAL are all teams that will likely be in the bottom half of the Serie A table, if not trying to avoid relegation, come the latter months of the season. That means we get to see whether or not one of Maurizio Sarris biggest perceived weaknesses as a manager, the ability to rotate his squad when the schedule gets hectic, will be tested.

That means that Juve are coming off back to back draws going into this weekends game. Will they end that run, or will Sarris issues continue in Turin? Maurizio Sarris men drew 2-2 at Atletico Madrid on Wednesday, a credible result had they not been coasting towards a victory. After throwing away a 2-0 lead in midweek, Juventus return to league action on Saturday looking to put things right.

Thats not exactly a huge total, but if it stays like that going forward the next couple of weeks, then there will only continue to be worries about Sarris ability to rotate his squad. And, with three straight game against teams that are far from what you would consider top-of-the-table challengers, Sarri has the chance to avoid that being the case to start out his tenure at Juventus. It was a major talking point during his one season at Chelsea. Nine players have started all three of the first three Serie A games this season. It was a major talking point during his tenure at Napoli as well.

Ill have them in -2 Asian Handicap and pick them to win with over 2.5 goals. Juventus have flawless home record vs Verona and I expect them to extend that streak with ease. Although media dont have Adrien Rabiot or Aaron Ramsey in the XI, Maurizio Sarri might give them a nod, and we should see Bianconeri in attacking mood from the get-go.

The Bianconeri have turned their stadium into a real fortress and seeing that Hellas Verona are seen as one of the main candidates to suffer relegation to the Serie B at the end of the season, we are positive that the title holders are going to pick up all three points from Saturdays football game. After dropping two points in a goalless draw with Fiorentina at Stadio Artemio Franchi, Juventus will be looking to return to winning ways in the Serie A when they host Hellas Verona at their Allianz Stadium.

It will be tough for them to even come close to outscoring the champs especially on their home pitch, and I believe that they know that, but still, they wont give up so easily, and will surely fight until the last whistle. In their 5 last matches in all competitions, they won 1, lost 3 and drew 1. Verona, also called the Yellow and Blues in Italy recorded a mixed bag of results lately. goal difference. They arent doing the best in the league either, and are currently placed 11th in the group standings with 4 points and 2:2.

Sarri has talked about Dybala as a false 9, but we have yet to truly see Juves No. 10 in that position to get any kind of reading as to how he will actually do. And once he does hit optimal game shape, its going to be interesting how Sarri plays it considering that Gonzalo Higuain has gotten the bulk of the playing time in the center of Juves front three attackers early this season. Dybala, obviously, has the kind of talent where can thrive in a system like Sarri has.

They were too open against both Atletico and Napoli throwing away a three-goal lead at one point against the Partenopei. However, smaller sides have been effective at restricting Juve. They have had an odd start, with two low scoring clashes followed by thrillers against top sides. The champions have issues to sort out, especially given how they were outperformed by Fiorentina in last weekends round of fixtures.
