On Sunday, Juventus clashes to Fiorentina at their Allianz Stadium. The Bianconeri will be looking forward to repairing after they failed with a 2-1 loss against Napoli. On the other hand, Fiorentina also could not manage to impress in a goalless draw with Genoa last weekend.
Both clubs are chasing for the Serie A trophy, but Inter Milan are close behind them in this race. The league leaders are likely going to get a solid victory and return their place in the Italian top flight.
Cristiano Ronaldo has found the net 17 times in his 18 appearances in the Serie A during this season. The Purples are sitting in the bottom half of the standings. Unfortunately, the visitors will face Juve without Caceres and Milenkovic.
Despite scoring at least once in their last 18 Serie A matches, Juventus lost to Napoli last time (2-1). That was just their second league defeat this season (after 16 wins and three draws). The Old Lady will do their best to get their winning ways back.
The Old Lady have achieved a victory in nine of their ten SA home matches (and one draw), scoring at least twice. Also, nine SA home matches have also witnessed the hosts open the scoring. 50% of their 24 goals were scored in the final 15 minutes of both halves.
Fiorentina’s last home match (0-0) witnessed the Purples go undefeated in four SA matches (two wins and two draws).
The visitors have found a net in eight of their ten away league matches (three Wins, three Draws, and four Losses), opening the scoring in four. Still, Fiorentina’s third away clean sheet does not look very convincing.
Stat Attack and Players to Watch
Juventus: Cristiano Ronaldo – He has already found the net in eight consecutive league matches (12 goals across in total).
Fiorentina: Dusan Vlahovic – he has scored all his four SA goals in the final 30 minutes of the match.
Fiorentina have witnessed a league-high 12.4 corners per SA away fixture this season. On the other hand, Juve players have scored at least one goal in both halves in 70% of their SA home games.
