On October 17, 2021 at 11:45 am PST, the 8th round of Serie A will see a focus match, when Juventus will face Roma at home.
Juventus failed to defend their title last season and only got the 4th place in the league, and even nearly slipped out of the Champions League.With the departure of their core scorer Cristiano Ronaldo, the team had a sluggish start this season.
But after the low period, the team rebounded quickly. Before the international match day, the team won 5 and drew 1 in all matches, including a 1-1 draw with AC Milan and a 1-0 victory over Chelsea in the Champions League, which shows that the team still has the strength of a powerhouse team.
After 7 rounds of league games, Juventus has won 3, drawn 2 and lost 2, ranking 7th in the league with 11 points and currently 4 points away from the Champions League.
From the data side, Juventus scored 11 goals and conceded 10 goals in 7 rounds of league. Although the attacking side is decent, too many goals conceded are also troubling the team’s results.
As for the lineup, Ramsey, Morata and Rabiot are injured and may not be able to participate in the game.
The changes of Roma this season are obvious to everyone. In order to support the tactical system of the new manager Jose Mourinho, the club has made a splash in the transfer market this summer, bringing in a number of players including Abraham and Shomurodov, with a transfer fee of £87.89 million, ranking 6th in the top five leagues.
As for the record, after 7 rounds of league games, Red Wolves have won 5 and lost 2, ranking 4th in the league table with 15 points. With one less game, there is a 7-point gap with the current leader AC Milan.
Roma’s most recent match was at home against Empoli, where the team dominated the field with 64% possession and 7 out of 18 shots on target. With 2 goals from Pellegrini and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, the team ended up with a dominant 2-0 victory.
It is worth noting that Roma’s 2 losses in the league this season were both on the road, and its current road ranking is 15th in the league. In addition, Smolin, Spinazzola and Abraham are all injured and are afraid of not playing in this match.
In the past meetings between the two teams, Juventus has a clear advantage with 5 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses in their last 10 matches against Roma.
As for the recent situation, it is a fact that Juventus’ overall strength has declined this season. Roma, on the other hand, has been attracting strong reinforcements this season, and its strength has improved significantly, but its away form is inconsistent.
Combined with the status of both sides, Juventus still has a chance to get all 3 points in this battle.
