Verona vs Juventus
Italy Serie A
Date: Saturday, 27 February 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi.
Just as expected, the defending champions stormed past the rock-bottomed Crotone on Monday night to narrow the gap to eight points behind leaders Inter.
The Bianconeri also have a game in hand on the table-toppers, meaning they are still well in the race for defending Scudetto title. The next challenge for Cristiano Ronaldo & company comes in the likes of Verona who have been producing some stellar attacking displays of late.
I Gialloblu notched two goals in each of the last two league outings and they could be very dangerous against the vulnerable defence of Juve’s here.
Moreover, the team led by Ivan Juric have a strong home record in this term of Serie A. Hellas Verona won six, drew two, and lost three of eleven league matches at Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi this season.
Verona vs Juventus Head-to-head
- Juventus have been the dominant force in this match-up all up until the last year.
- Since 2020, Verona won one and drew one of two clashes against La Vecchia Signora.
- It is very interesting to mention that each of the last six head to head games between the two sides saw goals scored at both ends.
- The run includes this season’s shocking 1-1 draw at Allianz Stadium in Turin.
Verona vs Juventus Prediction
Verona proved to have what it takes to stun I Bianconeri in the recent head to head matches. They have also won each of the last three league fixtures on the home patch, netting at least two goals in each of the victories. All of the last six outings I Gialloblu played at Stadio Bentegodi saw goals scored at both ends.
Since Juventus kept just one clean sheet in the last six away matches across competitions, we fancy the Both Teams To Score pick at the odds of 1.80.
We don’t quite recognize the value in backing the away win bet at the 1.53 odds knowing about Verona’s fine home form and back-to-back away losses for Juventus against Napoli and Porto. This is why we will back the draw at the 4.20 odds instead.
