29.01.2021 » Juventus silverware prospects in the Serie A and Champions League
Juventus have experienced an average campaign by their high standards in the Serie A and they find themselves playing catch-up for the top spot at the midway stage of the campaign. The Bianconeri are currently fourth on the table with a seven-point deficit to table-toppers AC Milan, but they do have the game in hand against Napoli, after seeing the Sicilian club winning their appeal for postponing the match from October of 2020. In the Champions League, the Italian giants prepare to face off with Portugal's champions, FC Porto, in a tie scheduled for next February and March...
Juventus - Most important wins from their last Serie A campaign:
A disappointing campaign so far...
The club have suffered just two league defeats this term, the same as the Rossoneri, but they have played out as many as six draws which have cost them valuable points. To put into context, the Turin giants have registered six or more stalemates in just one of the previous five completed seasons and that makes the current campaign look pretty ordinary. They did win their ninth Supercoppa Italiana earlier this month, but that pales in comparison to the expectations at the club.
Andrea Pirlo's side are scheduled to face Sampdoria, AS Roma and Napoli over the next three league games and each of those can be regarded as potentially must-win matches. Their record against Sampdoria has been impressive over the years and they should be fancied to pick up three points. If you are keen to bet on the game then Ronaldo will definitely be one to watch with great goalscoring odds on the Betfair Exchange. However, they face a tougher test against Roma whom they have beaten in just one of the previous four league meetings (one draw and two defeats).
Priorities must be chosen...
To make things trickier, they have the Roma game sandwiched between the double-legged Coppa Italia semi-finals against Inter, who inflicted one of their two league defeats earlier this month. Shortly after the second leg, they have an away trip to Napoli, which should offer a further test of their title credentials for the campaign.
The Bianconeri have made some ground on the likes of Milan, Inter and Roma above them over the past few weeks, but they have no room for errors during the forthcoming run of fixtures which remain one of their most challenging for the season. With games coming up after every three days, it won’t come as a surprise, if the Bianconeri makes multiple player changes, particularly for the Coppa Italia tie.
Elsewhere, the club have been drawn against Porto for the Champions League round of 16 and they will travel to the Portuguese outfit for the first leg following the Napoli clash. On paper, they are favourites to come up on top, but the Bianconeri can't take things for granted, having been ousted from the competition by the likes of Ajax and Lyon in recent seasons.
