With Roma already eight points behind Inter Milan and a Champions League spot, the “I Giallorossi” could certainly do with a shock win in Turin against the league leaders. This does however seem unlikely when you consider that 16-teams in the Italian league have already tried and failed this season. Form Labs return with their betting preview and tips for the big clash in Serie A this weekend and if you are looking for some additional value then check out our Serie A enhanced accas for week 17.
Roma Struggling To Keep Pace
Roma managed to take all three points hosting Genoa in their last match, though that’s not all that impressive as their visitors that day are mired in a horrendous run of six defeats from 10 winless matches, while in addition they crashed out of the Coppa Italia to Serie C side Virtus Entella on penalties during this period.
That victory was just Roma’s second in eight attempts and even more worryingly in the context of this game, both those wins came at the Stadio Olimpico. On their travels, Roma are just W2-D3-L5 across all competitions since late August, which doesn’t offer much encouragement ahead of a daunting trip to Juve.

Juventus In Supreme Form
Indeed, the Bianconeri have won 15 of 16 unbeaten matches this term as they’re a class apart, winning to nil in each of their last five as they’re defence remains as fearsome as ever. Those recent wins include victories over both Inter and Milan, both of whom have out-gunned Roma this term, and so it’s difficult to envisage any other conclusion than the home win.
The challenge facing Roma is made all the more arduous by Juve’s unparalleled record in front of their own fans. Since 2013/14, they’ve kept a clean sheet in over two thirds of their games as they’ve gone an incredible W92-D8-L3 at the J Stadium.
Indeed, La Liga’s Atletico Madrid are realistically the only side that could potentially argue a better defence over this period. Even when limiting results to those against Napoli, Inter, Milan, Roma and Lazio, the Old Lady are still W24-D2-L2 on home turf as they shut out their opponents in 14 of those victories.

Juventus Dominant Over Roma
Juve have actually won each of their eight matches hosting Roma across all competitions since 2011/12 (when their domestic dominance began), keeping a clean sheet in six of these as the last three each finished 1-0.
In fact, they’ve kept a clean sheet in four of their last five encounters home or away, such is the scale of the task faced by Roma’s forwards.
Even talisman Edin Dzeko has just one goal in five matches against them, with that coming way back in August 2015 just after he’d signed, as he’s played the full 90 minutes in each of those games.
The Bosnian last appeared for them just shy of a month ago now and so if a fully fit Dzeko struggled to score, we don’t give much hope to a non-match fit one.
