Juventus will be aiming to build on back-to-back wins over Sampdoria and Inter when it hosts Hellas Verona at Allianz Stadium on Saturday. You can live-bet on the Serie A action by using our sportsbook.
Juventus: Racing for Europe
The race for Europe and the relegation battle are heavily present in Serie A this weekend, with Juventus hosting relegation-threatened Verona on Saturday. Juventus still has a strong chance of reaching the Champions League spots this season, despite the major setback of a 15-point deduction. Ahead of this weekend’s round of matches, Max Allegri’s side sits seventh in the Serie A table, with a seven-point gap between it and fourth-placed AC Milan.
With the chance still available to reach their main objective, the hosts will be confident of picking up all three points against a struggling Verona side. Alongside some solid home form, Juventus has only lost once in its last seven matches across all competitions, so we will continue to include it in our Serie A picks and parlays.
Suspensions will play a big part in Allegri’s team selection this weekend, with Moise Kean returning from a ban and Adrien Rabiot and Leandro Parades serving a one-game suspension. Filip Kostic and Nicolo Fagioli are still sidelined. Leonardo Bonucci and Fabio Miretti are back in training, while all Alex Sandro, Arkadiusz Milik, and Federico Chiesa are major doubts. A player to watch and bet on in the home team will be Dusan Vlahovic, who scored a brace for Serbia in a 2-0 win over Montenegro on Monday.
Verona: Fighting to Avoid Relegation
Verona experienced all sorts of problems at the back in the relegation six-pointer against Sampdoria just before the international break. Verona lost 3-1 and is now sitting five points behind the first salvation spot, so it will be desperate to win games and pull off upsets. Just four teams have allowed more goals than Verona this season and just one team, Sampdoria, has scored less.
Verona’s board turned to Marco Zaffaroni during the winter hiatus, replacing Salvatore Bocchetti, who lost all of his matches in charge, and inspiring his new side to 14 points from 11 games in 2023, only one less than AC Milan since the World Cup. Zaffaroni has taken Verona off the foot of the table, but the team has no quality for Serie A, so if you’re betting online, you should fade it.
Key defender Diego Coppola misses out through a ban, with Federico Ceccherini set to fill in. Isak Hien and Simone Verdi are also expected to come into a refreshed starting lineup, with Ajdin Hrustic still a week away from a return to action.
Juventus vs Verona Head-to-Head
As the hosts look to stay on track for a Champions League spot, it hit a hot streak in the final third, with nine goals scored in its last four league games, including eight from two matches at home. Juventus has won 10 home games this season, losing just one in 14 and scoring 33 goals. On the other side, Verona is winless on the road, picking up just five points in 13 away games and scoring just seven goals in the process. Juventus won the last two head-to-heads, keeping two clean sheets.
