Juventus returns to action following the international break on Saturday, as they welcome Hellas Verona to Turin. The hosts will be looking to record a third straight victory, while Verona will be looking for a success to lift themselves out of the bottom three in the standings.
Serie A Preview
Juventus remains in contention for a Champions League finish this term, despite having been handed a points deduction after the World Cup. The Old Lady currently sits seventh in the standings, but they are just seven points off AC Milan, who sit fourth. Juventus has been incredibly consistent over their previous five matches, as they have recorded four wins, and they will be chasing a third straight success on Saturday.
An indicator as to how solid Juventus has been is the fact that only Napoli have picked up more points than the Old Lady over the last 20 rounds of fixtures in Serie A. Defensively, they have been solid throughout the campaign, as they have kept a remarkable 16 clean sheets in 27 matches.
Hellas Verona will be hoping for a change in fortunes following the international break, as they remain in the bottom three places in the league standings. They have picked up just four wins from their 27 matches this season, and they have scored just 22 goals.
Verona comes into this fixture after losing three of their previous five. Their most recent loss was suffered on the road, as they crashed to a 3-1 defeat against Sampdoria. They will need to show much more defensively this weekend if they are to have any hope of taking anything out of this fixture against Juventus.
Juventus vs Hellas Verona Head to Head
Juventus will be chasing a first league double against Verona since the 2017-18 season this weekend. They have won each of their last two matches against Verona, but they have never won three without conceding on the bounce. The Old Lady has won 13 of their last 14 home matches against Hellas Verona.
Juventus vs Hellas Verona Prediction
The strong home record that the Old Lady boasts in this fixture deserves respect coming into this weekend, and it is one of the reasons that we believe that this should result in a comfortable success for Juventus against Hellas Verona on Saturday.
