Roma vs Juventus – Betting Preview
Roma takes on Juventus as both teams are vying for a strong finish in the 2022–23 season during this weekend’s Serie A action. Juventus is presently in seventh place, 10 points behind Roma, who are both competing for the final two Champions League positions!
Although it might be out of reach for Juventus!
Only two of Jose Mourinho’s team’s past five league games have resulted in victories, including a shock loss to Cremonese in the middle of the week.
Roma have not failed to score at home in their previous five league games in the capital, despite their decline in league performance, and they remain firmly among the clubs vying for a potential top-four spot.
Although Juventus suffered a significant setback, they still appear to be gaining crucial momentum heading into this matchup, which could be an interesting way to close the weekend!
Mourinho has no fresh injuries to deal with ahead of this clash, with Ebrima Darboe out of action until next season with a knee injury. However, on the back of a shock defeat last time out, he will rotate. Rick Karsdorp, Nemanja Matic and Tammy Abraham are all set to start.
With all eyes on Juventus, the race for a spot in Europe in Serie A this season appears to be going all the way to the finish line. With a 15-point deduction for financial issues, Max Allegri’s team dropped down the table as their attention shifted from a title challenge to perhaps qualifying for the Champions League.
Allegri’s team has responded well to the punishment with four straight league victories and advancement into the final 16 of the Europa League, which might serve as a backdoor to the Champions League if they go on to win it.
The goals have also been constant for the Turin giants as their form has continued to improve.
They have scored ten goals in just four league games, averaging more than two goals per contest. They’ll be hoping to keep it going in Rome, where they think they can pick up a big victory at the Stadio Olimpico.
1×2 Betting Odds
Let’s analyse the 1×2 betting market.
Roma racked up seven wins from a possible 10 across all tournaments at Stadio Olimpico, Rome, drew one and lost two. Juventus won eight of their previous 10 away, drew zero and lost two times.
So both these teams are coming off from a similar form… so the result could go either way really! With stalemate also being a real possibility!
Even the betting market is on the edge with this one, with near dead even odds!
Roma to win stands @ 2.72. They are the slight favourites!
Juventus is not that far behind though, with their odds standing @ 2.98.
The market odds of a stalemate and points shared between these two giants, stands @ 3.26.
Total goals over/under
Let’s analyse the over/under market.
The odds that the total number of goals scored will be over 2.5, stands @ 2.55.
While the odds that the total number of goals will be under 2.5, stands @ 1.62.
In 7 of the last 8 Roma home matches the sum of goals was under 2.5. and given how Mourinho sets up his sides, that statistic is not a surprise.
Expect a similar scoring trend to follow. Under 2.5 goals would be a good bet to make!
