Looking back to their relentless best recently, Al Hain-Cole expects Allegri's team to extend their strong home record against the Giallorossi

Juventus will be aiming to take another major step in their ascent up the Serie A table when Roma visit Turin on Saturday.

Having leapfrogged Inter into second place last weekend, the champions are slowly but surely recovering from a stuttering start to the campaign.

Match odds

With just one point now separating them from first-placed Napoli, the Bianconeri are available at 8/11 (1.73) with Paddy Power to ramp up the pressure on top spot with a high profile win here.

Just three points behind their opponents in fourth place themselves, Eusebio Di Francesco's men are priced at 7/2 (4.50) to add more intrigue to an entertainingly competitive Scudetto race by coming out on top here.

Only one of the previous 13 meetings between the sides has resulted in a draw, but you can get odds of 13/5 (3.60) on them being forced to share the spoils on this occasion.

Strong Juventus form

After giving other potential title contenders cause for optimism with a slow start to the campaign, Massimiliano Allegri's side have started to looked ominously relentless in recent weeks.

While only Barcelona and Inter have stood between them and victory over the last seven matches in all competitions, not a single opponent has managed to breach a defence that has now not conceded since mid-November.

Having managed just one goal from their last two away matches against modest Genoa and Chievo teams, the visiting Giallorossi will have their work cut out to avoid an eighth consecutive away defeat against the team they have lost to more than any other in Italy's top flight.

Tips and predictions

With confidence inevitably shaken by Wednesday's Coppa Italia exit at home to Torino, odds of 8/11 (1.73) seem like strong value on Roma coming away with nothing once again versus an in-form Juventus.
