Juventus vs Roma Preview & Possible Lineups: Both teams meet earlier in the season where Roma defeated Juventus by 2-1 with goals coming from Pjanic and Edin Dzeko while Paulo Dybala was on target for Juventus. Since than alot has changed and both teams has kind of swapped not only their league positions but also the form. Juventus are currently sitting second in the table with 40 points just 2 behind leaders Napoli while AS Roma has drift into 5th place after a good start to the season.

14′ 1 – 0 Gonzalo Higuain scored early in first half to gave Juventus the lead. What a goal it was he strike from edge of the box with a left footed shoot which flown past Roma keeper ]
AS Roma are coming into this game on the back of three back to back draws against the likes of Milan, Hellas Verona and Chievo which kind of got them away from the title race. But a win against Juventus will not only get them back into the mix but it will also put belief and confidence which Roma lacks big time at the moment. This is how I expect both teams to lineup this Sunday night in Turin.
Predictions: Juventus are currently the most inform team not only in Italy but also in europe, they are on a 10 games winning stream since October 25 and looking at Roma’s form who just can not buy a win at the moment I can only see just 1 result in this game, thats Juventus winning comfortably.
Juventus are well and truly back in the title race after their impressive 1-0 win over Roma. They now sit just 2 points behind Napoli. Its has been great turn around as Juventus stretched their winning stream to 11 games now.
