The final round of the 2019/20 Serie A season sees champions Juventus hosting AS Roma on Saturday evening.
Juventus wrapped up their 9th successive Serie A title with a clinical and convincing 2-0 win over Sampdoria on matchday 36. The toll of that victory and confirmation of their status as the top-flight champions appears to have gotten the better of them as they travelled to 13th placed Cagliari a couple of days later as they slumped to a shock 2-0 loss with both of Cagliari’s goals coming in the first half of the game.
Juventus form in the league at home, however, has been nothing short of spectacular. They are unbeaten this season having won 16 and drawn 2 of their 18 matches this season. In fact, this unbeaten home run stands at 39, dating back to May 2018.
However, with a Champions League second leg last of 16 coming up against Lyon, Juve may be tempted to rest their big guns from this one and that may just present an opportunity for AS Roma to have a go at them.
AS Roma have come alive in the business end of the season, with a 7-game unbeaten run that has seen them clinch 5th spot of the table. A 3-2 win at Torino on their last outing got the job done as Edin Dzeko, Chris Smalling and Amadou Diawara got the goals to complement their dominant performance.
Roma too have some European football assignments on the horizon with a trip to Sevilla in the round of 16 coming up when the Europa league resumes. With top 4 out of reach, winning the Europa Legue Cup is the only way they can sneak into the Champion’s League next season. They may also also be tempted to rest some of their stars for this match.
There’s nothing to lose for either team coming into this game with their respective positions secure. Both teams are likely to field relatively weakened squads with Champions League and Europa League resuming next week. Putting key players out there in an inconsequential game, with big games coming up is a tad risky. However, they will still have some first-team players to make the game competitive. That lack of continuity of squads might indicate a game that will be rather disjointed. We do not see lots of goals in such a setting. We are therefore going for Goal Under 3.5 @ 1.74 with 1xBet as our betting tip for the game.
Juventus’ home performances has been their bread and butter this season. They are unbeaten at home and have picked an incredible 50 points out a possible 52 from home this season. Regardless of whatever lineup they put out there, we still anticipate it will be competitive enough to keep their 39-match unbeaten run at home going. We are there, therefore, going for Double Chance Juventus or Draw @ 1.70 with 1xBet betting app as our final shout for this game.
