Our Prediction:

Juventus will win

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

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.

They like to keep things as tight as possible and build on solid defensive play. They have seen just four goals in their opening three games, a 1-1 draw, a 1-0 win and a 1-0 defeat. That will be the game plan, and if Juventus take their eye off the ball here just slightly, it gives Verona the chance to try and hold them.

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.

Because of the essential protesting and questioning of squad rotation done by Sarri during his pre-match press conference, the gut feeling I had about Dybala starting isnt exactly as firm as it was before Juves first-year manager started talking.

Juventus vs Verona Predictions

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.

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.

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.

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.

10 actually getting more than just a cameo and a total of four of the usual starters actually being tipped to start against Hellas Verona. La Gazzettas predicted lineup for Saturdays game has changed majorly since then, however, with Sarris words about squad rotation at his pre-match press conference obviously being a heavy influence in a lot of the possible rotation decisions they thought MIGHT happen against Hellas Verona. Compared to what we saw this past weekend in Florence, theres a different goalkeeper, Juves new right back playing left back, a right winger at right back, a completely different three-man midfield, Juves No.
