Juventus VS Roma often brings drama, fierce competition and entertainment. We hope the tradition continues when both teams meet on Sunday. A traditional Serie A classic, the fixture lost some of its importance over the years partly because AS Roma have been underwhelming. Juventus meanwhile have had their worst start to a season in recent history this year. The Bianconeri are currently 7th with many doubting if they’d be able to cope without Ronaldo.

Mourinho has steered Roma firmly into the top 4 and his men have put in some impressive performances. With both teams trying to keep up with the Serie A top pack, this showdown promises to be a fire cracker.

Any club that loses a player like Cristiano Ronaldo would struggle and that’s exactly what Juventus did. The former Serie A Champions have struggled to cope without the Portuguese talisman. There were real fears when they lost to Napoli and Empoli in August that they were in danger of descending into disaster. Allegri has however managed to steer the ship and Juventus are now unbeaten in their last 6 matches. In that time, they drew against Milan and even beat European Champions Chelsea. Currently languishing in 7th, a win against Roma would bring Allegri’s team 1 point behind their opponents and closer to the top 4.
The return of Chiellini looks to have boosted their chances as they have managed to keep 2 clean sheets in their last 2 matches. That is a big difference for a side that had previously conceded 5 goals in 3 matches. It is however not known if Juventus will be able to maintain their consistency and form. AS Roma present will present another test to ascertain their potentials and capabilities this season. Other stars like Chiesa, Morata, Dybala and Rabiot have to step up as well if Juventus want to beat Roma and completely turn their season around.

MOURINHO’S AS ROMA
Jose Mourinho’s arrival at AS Roma has definitely lifted the club. In fact, the charisma and entertaining nature of The Special One has lifted the Serie as a whole. Mourinho’s men recorded 6 straight victories before eventually succumbing to defeats against Verona and Lazio. They however bounced back with 2 straight wins against Zorya and Empoli before the International break. Matches involving AS Roma this season have been high-scoring. This is a contrast to traditional Mourinho teams who has built a culture of conservative approaches to games. Roma currently sit 4th in the Serie A, 4 points ahead of Juventus and a win would stretch their lead over their opponents to 7 points.
Both Mourinho and Roma are out to prove points this season. Roma have not won a trophy since 2007 while Mourinho is keen to move on from his tumultuous time at Tottenham. Critics have however argued that AS Roma still lack character and are likely to fall against tough opponents as they did against Lazio. A win over Juventus would go a long way in proving that Roma mean business as they look to win the Serie A for the first time in 21 years.
