Juventus takes on Serie A rival Roma today in a Serie A clash. This match has a lot of implications for the current table for both teams.
Juventus currently sits in 7th place with Roma ahead of them in 5th. There’s a 9-point difference between the two clubs but this match could help close that gap. Coming off of a solid win against Torino last week, Juventus should be able to capitalize on that momentum and walk away from this match with 3 points.
After struggling all season with a variety of injuries, Juventus seems to finally be fully healthy. When this team has all of its top players on the pitch, it can compete with any team in the league. Juventus looked strong across the board last week against Torino and was able to finally get Paul Pogba back onto the pitch. If he can round into form soon, this team could easily put pressure on the top 4 of the league.
Roma has had a bit of an up-and-down season as well. They have had an interesting run of form recently which includes a loss last week to Cremonese. Manager Jose Mourinho also received a red card in that match which means that he won’t be with the team today during the match.
This match has huge implications for Juventus and Roma. If Juve can win, that will put them closer to the top of the table.
If Roma can take the 3 points, then they will be tied for 4th with Inter. Depending on the result, Roma could overtake Inter on goal differential. Juventus will need to deploy their best squad possible to keep that from happening and help them continue to vault up the table.
