Juventus are facing to Hellas Verona at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi on Saturday evening. The Old Lady quickly recovered from a 2-1 defeat against Napoli, but Lazio and Inter are still following them very close in the Serie A standings. The Bianconeri should mind their own business, and Maurizio Sarri is likely to field the best possible side against Verona.
Chiellini, Khedira, Demiral, and Danilo are sidelined because of their injuries, but Cristiano Ronaldo seems to be ready to do his best against opposition defenders. Hellas Verona, on the other hand, were playing above expectations in the 2019/20 season. They look forward to retaining their spot in the top ten, but they will have to do more essential things in Saturday’s match against the Serie A leaders.
Verona had their seventh unbeaten Serie A streak in the midweek. Noteworthy that they have suffered only two losses from their last nine league games (three Wins, four Draws, and two Losses).
Hellas Verona have won five of their 11 Serie A home matches (also three Draws and three Losses). All of those wins were against the clubs sitting in the 14th or below in the standings.
Last time, the Bianconeri beat Fiorentina 3-0, and now they have nine victories in their last 11 competitive games. The Old Lady have netted over 2.5 goals in more than half (4) of their last seven fixtures.
