Current Serie A leaders Juventus travel to the Italian capital to take on AS Roma at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday night.

It’s the penultimate weekend and the Giallorossi are third on the log but have a train made up of fierce rivals Lazio and Inter trying to knock them off in the battle to clinch Champions League football next season.

This means a victory at odds of (2.30) as per NairaBet is very crucial to keep them in check.

The Old Lady head into the game on the back of a 4-0 win over rivals AC Milan which handed them their fourth consecutive Coppa Italia title.

They are currently six points clear of their closest challengers Napoli at the top and victory at (3.35) would see them clinch their seventh straight league crown.

A draw would be enough for the Bianconeri to lift the title and it’s (3.10) for it to happen.

Juventus have won six of their last nine league meetings with Eusebio di Francesco’s side, keeping clean sheets in five of them. Punters who are willing to take a big risk can back the men in black and white stripes to win to nil at odds of (5.50).

However, a fine fact that reads well for the Romans in that they haven’t lost in their last three home league games against their opponents, winning the last two. A double chance for them is thus priced at (1.35).

This is a contest of the two teams in the Serie A with most clean sheets in the past two seasons Juventus (39), Roma (30). This means it’s going to be a tight game and we can expect to see a few goals. A pick of two goals or less at (1.75) which has featured in their recent meetings would certainly yield dividends.

The solidness of both teams at the back also means that goal action might not be expected at both ends of the Olimpico which is valued at (1.95) with NairaBet.
