AS Roma welcome Juventus with a lot on the line for both teams. A win for the hosts would secure their spot in next season’s Champions League whilst a point or more for Juve would seal a seventh consecutive league title.

The Roman side have been given a slight advantage by the moneyline odds. They are Serie A’s inform team having won four consecutive matches in the lead up to this game. Roma possess a four-point lead over fifth-place Inter Milan in the race for the top four.

Juventus have recovered from a shock draw against Crotone followed by defeat at home to Napoli with wins in their two most recent matches. The Juventus defence has once again been formidable this season and will hope to keep an occasionally misfiring Roma attack quiet.

AS Roma are the only side in Serie A’s top 6 to have scored less than their expected goals total. Striker Edin Dzeko is on course to score below his expected goals numbers for the third consecutive season. The Bosnian relies on a high quantity of shots to make up for inefficiency in front of goal. Only Napoli’s Lorenzo Insigne takes more shots per game than Dzeko.

This could be an issue against a Juventus side who limit their opponents to a league low 8.2 shots per game. Roma will need to be at their best to create opportunities against such a strong backline.

AS Roma vs. Juventus: Where is the value?

Considering Juventus have lost just once away from home this season odds of 1.571* on the Juventus +0.5 handicap could offer some value to bettors. Juve have covered that handicap in 81% of their matches this season.

Equally, given Juventus’ Serie A leading defence and Roma’s occasionally inefficient attack Roma may struggle to find a breakthrough. A low scoring game should suit Juventus so there could be some value to be found in a bet on Roma to score under 1.25 goals at 1.806*.
