The match is over.
SPAL visit Turin this weekend to take on the eight in a row champions Juventus, with the side from Ferrara hovering just above the relegation zone.
Juventus had to come from behind to beat Hellas Verona at home on the weekend and they currently sit two points behind league leaders Inter who are on 12 after winning each of their opening four games. The champions play Brescia midweek before turning their attention to this game and they will be expected to win both those games by a comfortable score line.
The Bianconeri haven’t been firing on all cylinders this season and are yet to display any of the attacking football that new Coach Maurizio Sarri was brought in to develop. However, with Cristiano Ronaldo always hungry for goals a high scoring win shouldn’t be too long in coming.
Juventus have been leaking goals in their recent matches – three against Napoli, two against Atletico Madrid and even falling behind against Verona in their previous home game in Serie A. With Giorgio Chiellini out for most of the season the Bianconeri won’t be as solid as the used to be.
Juventus will be expected to win this game comfortably, SPAL are struggling this season so far winning just once in their opening four games.
Head to Head
These sides last met in Serie A in November 2018 and the Old Lady ran out 2-0 winners. Since the Spallini returned to the topflight after a 49-year absence there have been four matches played between the sides, with Juve winning both their home fixtures, while SPAL have won one and drawn one in their two home games.
The match to end in a Juventus win
Juventus have a game with Brescia before this fixture and will be looking to pick up the six points between both matches. The Bianconeri have yet to hit form this season and have stiff competition from both Napoli and Inter for the title. They will be looking for a comfortable victory in this one.
For SPAL their focus this week will be more on their home game with Lecce midweek that this one, as a win in that would see them move three points ahead of their Wednesday night visitors. The Spallini won’t be too confident about getting anything out of this one, but will no doubt try to at least grab a point.
