Cristiano Ronaldo Juventus
The reigning Serie A champions have won five consecutive league games to start the season and look set for another big victory at the Allianz Stadium

The arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo has only added to the sense of certainty that Juventus will be crowned champions of Italy once more.

Massimiliano Allegri's side are just 11/50 (1.22) with 888Sport to retain their title having started the campaign with five wins from as many matches.

The same firm make Juve just 2/13 (1.15) to come out on top against Bologna on Wednesday in what looks to be another straightforward task for the Old Lady.

The visitors recorded a shock victory over Roma last time out, but the stats suggest they were somewhat lucky to secure a first win of the campaign. They're 18/1 (19.0) to repeat their herorics with three points here and 23/4 (6.75) to secure an unlikely draw.

Now, Bologna face their toughest test of the season as they head to Turin and plenty of punters will be keen to find a way to back the home side. The key question is how to do so at a price that's acceptable as a single selection?

The answer comes in the form of Juventus -2 on the Asian Handicap with 888Sport at 10/11 (1.91). This bet wins if Juve triumph by three or more goals and bettors will get their money back if the winning margin is exactly two.

So far in Serie A, the reigning champions have scored at least twice in every game while Bologna's two strikes against Roma last time out were their first of the campaign.

Ronaldo's red card against Valencia in the Champions League means the 33-year-old can focus on domestic matters for the foreseeable future and that's a worrying prospect given their dominance in recent years.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is just 1/2 (1.50) to score anytime in this game having scored in back-to-back Serie A outings but a wide-margin victory looks the call.

The underdogs have already lost 3-0 to Inter Milan this term and given that Juventus have netted at least three times in four of the last six head-to-head meetings, another big win is on the cards here.

Juventus to win -2 (Asian Handicap) at 10/11 (1.91) for a 2pt stake with 888Sport
