AS Roma lost the last league 3-0 because of roster error. Their overall performance was not very satisfying. There were totally 21 shots, but none was on target. The offensive efficiency was extremely low. Moreover, in terms of strength, the newly signed signed players can’t make up for the ones who left. There are many injured in the team. The only advantage this time can only be regarded as the home game.
Although Juventus defeated Sampdoria 3-0 in the first round, Sampdoria stil got 15 shots. The defense is not solid enough. In addition, the main defensive midfielders Miralem Pjanic and Emre Can have left the team, so the organization and defensive capacity of the midfield has declined a lot. The introduced Arthur and Weston Mckennie lack experience, and the defense may encounter a lot of obstructs.
The handicap first odds was AS Roma +0.25 with high return, and turned to +0.5 with ow return, which is reasonable. Although AS Roma do not have an advantage in their stats, they have performed well every time they meet Juventus at home. However, there are many injuries in the team, and Nicolò Zaniolo and Javier Pastore can’t play this time. I think that Juventus may run out.
Pick: Juventus -0.5
Prediction: Juventus wins
Score Prediction: 0-1, 1-2
