Juventus vs SPAL: Predictions, Betting Tips & Odds
This is being dubbed as a classic mismatch as SPAL go to Juventus but Leonardo Semplici’s side have shown they can upset the Serie A big boys.
When Juventus face off against SPAL this weekend it will feel like just another game for the Bianconeri and for good reason. Massimiliano Allegri’s Juventus are six points clear at the top of the Serie A table whilst SPAL hover just four points above the drop zone.
The visitors have of course surprised a big team already this season, when they walked away from the Stadio Olimpico with all three points after a 2-0 win over Roma. However, this game feels slightly different considering the difference between Juventus and the capital city club in the current season.
The home side are as dominant as can be and it’s staggering to see just how much they control their own fate when it comes to potentially winning the league. They have the joint best attack, the best defence record and top a number of statistical categories.
You can expect The Old Lady to see the majority of the ball in this one considering they top the table in possession per home game with 56% whilst SPAL rank near the bottom with 50.1% per game away game.
At the end of the day, football comes down to a combination of factors, but mostly player quality and managerial quality, which the home side have in abundance. It should be enough to see them through, 3-0 Juventus.
- Over 2.5 goals
These are great odds for a match in which Juventus have scored at least 2 goals in their 12 of their last 13 Serie A matches and SPAL have conceded at least two in their last eight.
- Juventus to be winning at half time/full time
This is by far the best team in Italy facing off at home against a potential relegation candidate, so even 1 / 2 odds for Juventus be winning by half-time and full-time is a pretty safe bet.
