Juventus vs SPAL Serie A

The match is over.
Score: 2-0.

Juventus will hope to continue their strong start to the season as they host an out-of-form SPAL side who have lost three of their opening four league games.

Predictions

Maurizio Sarri has made a reasonably solid start to life as Juve manager – he has won three and drawn two of his opening five fixtures.

In Serie A, the Old Lady have 10 points from their opening four games – victories over Parma, Napoli and Verona along with a scoreless draw at Fiorentina.

SPAL are one of the smallest clubs in the division and will once more be looking to punch above their weight but have lost three of their opening four games.

A notable win at home to Lazio has been in the midst of defeats against Atalanta, Bologna and Sassuolo.

The hosts will be favourites to continue their winning streak due to possessing home advantage, superior form and quality over SPAL.

The home side are favourites to win this game and it should be relatively comfortable – a 2-0 triumph for the Serie A champions would appear a likely outcome from it.

Betting Tips

Juventus have already kept two clean sheets from their opening four league games while SPAL have not managed to score in either of their last two away games. The hosts to win without conceding is one of the best online betting odds for the round of action. 888Sport have the Juve win to nil at 11/10.

Indeed, Juve have never won the away fixture in this clash but have won both home games, including a 2-0 win last season.

Stats

  • SPAL have lost each of their last three Serie A away matches and 10 of their last 16.
  • The away team has never won in this fixture – it has produced three home victories and one draw across the four previous meetings.
  • Maurizio Sarri is looking to win his first major league title as a manager this season – Juve have won eight successive Serie A titles.
