Juventus (@1.14) vs Verona (@26.0)

Our Prediction:

Juventus will win

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

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.

With Juve in need of a straightforward win, we expect them to coast to a victory in this clash. The champions have scored twice in five of their last six meetings with Verona, while were tipping them to keep the score down in this one. As a result, were going with a 2-0 home win in Saturdays encounter, as Juve get some crucial points on the board.

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.

Well, its rather simple actually: Juventus is now in the midst of the first busy portion of its schedule for the 2019-20 season. The one-game-a-week stretch is over with, and competing on multiple fronts is going to be a constant for at least the next three months at the bare minimum. That means, as we know, a game comes every three or four days, with a Serie A or Champions League fixture midweek after the usual weekend league game.

Of course, all the eyes in the crowd will be on Cristiano Ronaldo, and I expect to see him net at least one goal. Mattia Perin, Giorgio Chiellini, Mattia De Sciglio, Douglas Costa and Marko Pjaca will have to cheer for their teammates from the comfort of their living rooms. Four players in the home team are injured and wont be available for the upcoming match.

Our prediction for this Serie A match:

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.

And were not just saying this because Hellas Verona has won just one of its first three games to start its return season back in Serie A. The first of those games, Hellas Veronas visit to Allianz Stadium on Saturday evening, is being looked at from the outside looking in as Sarris first legitimate chance to rotate his squad with such a quick turnaround following Wednesdays 2-2 with Atltico Madrid. No, no, my friends. But its because, outside of injury-related changes to his starting lineup, Sarri has yet to really shake things up when it comes to the 11 players hes rolled out there.

Juventus vs Verona H2H Last Matches

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.

With Verona losing their last nine away trips to Juve, we see them trying to keep the score down before moving onto more balanced games to come. Last season Juve failed to score four goals in any home game, while they saw under 3.5 goals in 84% of their Serie A matches. Given that form, we are backing the hosts to win this clash with under 3.5 goals scored.

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.

Recent Competition Form

Dybala has appeared in two games off the bench one in Serie A, the other being against Atltico Madrid in the Champions League group stage opener this past Wednesday. And thats after playing less than 100 minutes in the Copa America with Argentina over the summer. In those two games, Dybala has played a combined 30 minutes. Dybalas season to date and were talking about on-field stuff, not the whole transfer saga part of the summer where it looked like he might be headed to the Premier League has been more about how he hasnt played rather than what hes done to help Juventus win. Thirty!

Right now they are placed 3rd in the league standings, with 7 points and 5:3 goal difference, which is still not enough for the reigning champions of Serie A, but their results are getting better. There is a notable difference in strength between these two opponents, and I believe that Juventus is very well aware of that and that they are expecting nothing but to win this match. In those clashes, they scored 8 goals and conceded 5. Things are looking good in their latest 5 affairs, as they won 3, and drew 2 matches. Juventus, commonly known as the Old Lady are awaiting this match in a pretty good form.
