Match: Roma vs Juventus Competition: Italy – Serie A Time / Date: 21:45h / 13 May 2018 Venue: Stadio Olimpico
Juventus travel to Roma off the back of a Coppa Italia final victory over AC Milan that always had an air of inevitability about it.
The Bianconeri are now just one point away from clinching yet another title, and only a defeat by seven or eight goals could realistically put their title hopes in jeopardy. The last time Roma hit five or more goals in a match against Juventus was in 1930/’31 – simply put, it won’t happen.
Roma are four points clear of fifth place, and with Inter meeting Lazio in the last round, only a disaster could prevent them from missing out on the top-four.
Rick Karsdorp (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Bruno Peres (Biceps femoris muscle injury), Grégoire Defrel (Distortion of the ankle)
Juan Cuadrado (Yellow card suspension), Grigoris Kastanos (Suspension), Benedikt Höwedes (Thigh problems), Giorgio Chiellini (Biceps femoris muscle injury)
The Giallorossi are unbeaten in their last three home league games against the Bianconeri, winning both of the last two meetings – the last time they won three matches in a row against Juventus in the Olimpico was between 1993 and 1995.
Despite being in great away form, Juventus are fighting to avoid completing a first run of three successive away defeats to Roma since 1995.
