Chievo v Juventus Team News

Chievo dropped into the bottom half after picking up only a single point from last five league ties. A serious turnaround in form is thus required for Rolando Maran and his men if they want to avoid wrapping up into the relegation scrap. Nonetheless, Gialloblu will hardly arrest the current slump this Saturday as the defending champions Juventus are to come to visit Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi for the 22nd round tie.

The Champions Juventus trail the league leaders Napoli by a point and sit 2nd in the league table. They are seven ahead of the third-placed Lazio. Chievo are in the 13th position just six clear off the relegation zone and have been struggling for form as of late.

Juventus narrowly defeated Genoa last time around thanks to a goal from Brazilian Douglas Costa, a result which leaves them just a single point behind rivals Napoli at the top of the standings. With just two defeats to their name all season, Allegri’s men are set to give 100% for the remainder of the season as they bid to claim yet another Italian title. The visitors are the leading goalscorers in the division, with Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain having scored 23 goals between them so far this season.

At home, Chievo have won only once in their last six SA games (W1 D3 L2). In their last 12 matches in all competitions, the hosts have managed to score two or more goals, only twice! However, Chievo have already held Napoli and Roma to goalless draws at home this season, and that takes a lot of effort given the quality of those two attacks.

On the road, Juventus, have tasted defeat only once in ten games (W8 D1 L1). This season, they have failed to score only once in SA and have the second-best scoring tally (50 goals from 21 games).

Teams' Possible Starting Lineups:

Chievo (4-3-1-2): Sorrentino; Gobbi, Tomovic, Cesar, Cacciatore; Hetemaj, Radovanovic, Bastien; Birsa, Pellissier; Pucciarelli.

Juventus (4-3-3): Szczesny; Sandro, Chiellini, Benatia, Sciglio; Matuidi, Pjanic, Khedira; Mandzukic, Higuaín, Costa.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Chievo: Lucas Castro, Roberto Inglese.

Juventus: Benedikt Höwedes, Paulo Dybala, Juan Cuadrado, Gianluigi Buffon.

Head-to-Head Serie A Record: Chievo v Juventus

Juventus won the reverse fixture of this league tie by a 3-0 margin. An own goal by Chievo holding midfielder Hetemaj, followed by strikes from Higuain and Paulo Dybala set a scoreline that was a fairly emphatic victory for the Old Lady.

Conclusion and Predictions:

The Gialloblu are unlikely to break that fantastic run by the away side’s defence, based on their previous encounters. Chievo have scored only two goals in their last seven league games against Juventus, and we don’t see them getting one this weekend. We’re backing a low scoring affair when these two meet, so our prediction goes for an away win to nil from the visitors, given Juventus have not lost to Chievo in their last 15 SA encounters (W10 D5 L0), keeping a clean sheet in five of those last seven matches. Chievo’s last win came way back in 2010.
