Juventus vs Roma Prediction
Juventus are currently 7th in the league table after a slow start to their season. They reappointed Massimiliano Allegri as manager and sold star forward Cristiano Ronaldo this summer, and it is clear that the club is rebuilding the side.
Roma, on the other hand, appointed the charismatic and controversial Jose Mourinho as manager this summer. Mourinho’s stock has taken a massive dip in recent years, but Roma are currently 4th in the league table. There will be inevitable drama, but for now Mourinho looks content.
A close match is on the cards, and a draw seems to be an ideal result.
Prediction: Juventus 1-1 Roma
