Stadium: Allianz Stadium (Torino)

In recent weeks, the head of the Serie A has changed three times, with two teams to succeed as leaders: the Naples, back first six days ago and Inter. Juventus, which has never strayed too far, is second to one point from Napoli and one point more than Inter.


But Roma should be added to these three: in addition to the great progress made to see the game plan, it is only four points behind Napoli and has a game in hand, which will recover in mid-January against Sampdoria. Pending recovery, tonight Rome has the opportunity to reach the top three positions, but will have to deal with Juventus and in Turin.

Just a few weeks ago, Juventus-Roma would almost certainly have been a very open game. Juventus had just started to gear after the fluctuating performances at the start of the season while Roma were in a very good shape. But now things have changed slightly.

Juventus is continuing to improve its performance, as we saw in the 3-0 with which last week won in Bologna at the end of an impressive race for pace attitude and concentration shown by players on the field. Rome instead experienced a slight decline in form. Two weeks ago he equalized against Chievo in Verona while on the last day he only won at the last minute against Cagliari.
