Juventus vs Verona Serie A

Predictions

Juventus are aiming for an eighth consecutive top flight title in Italy under new boss Maurizio Sarri.

The Bianconeri were held at Fiorentina last time out after a thrilling late win over Napoli coupled with an opening day win at Parma.

Verona are back in Serie A after one year away and have made a solid start, collecting four points from their opening three league matches.

An opening day draw at home to Bologna was followed by a narrow win at Lecce before being edged out at home to Milan last weekend.

The hosts will be favourites to win this one due to possessing home advantage, superior form and quality over Verona.

The home side are favourites to win this game although it may not be a notable margin of victory – a 2-0 triumph for the Turin side would appear a likely outcome from it.

Betting Tips

This is a game unlikely to contain many goals – Verona have only scored two and conceded two in three games, while Juve have already been involved in a 1-0 and 0-0 from their opening three league games. This is among the best online betting odds this weekend. 888 Sport have priced it at 29/20.

All three of Verona’s matches to date this season have been stalemate at half-time and this could be another occasion, before they succumb to Juve in the second half. The visitors will look to sit deep and frustrate Sarri’s side throughout. 888Sport price the half time draw, full time Juventus at 13/4.
