Entering today’s contest, Juventus sit comfortably atop Serie A with 69 points. Not even Roma’s scorching start to the season was enough to keep the Old Lady from dominating Italian football. The club’s 30th Scudetto is all but a forgone conclusion at this stage of the campaign.
This match, however, is more than a formality for Fiorentina. The Lilies sit seven points back of Napoli in the Serie A table. If the club has any hopes of capturing a UEFA Champions League spot, it must capture points where others cannot. Today’s visit to Turin presents Fiorentina with such an opportunity. It won’t be easy. As pointed out by the statisticians at WhoScored, Juventus have won their last 13 home matches in Serie A and are undefeated in 11 of their last 12 home matches against Fiorentina in all competitions.
Lady luck appears to be on the old lady’s side, can Fiorentina do anything to change that? Tell us @SportsWN
Player to Watch: This one, admittedly, is a personal favorite. Juventus’ Paul Pogba has seven goals and six assists in 30 appearances across all competitions. The sensational 20-year-old has been hyped as the next great footballer on the planet. He’ll have to live up to it in a clash between these Italian powers later today.
Juventus’ Projected Lineup 3-5-2: Buffon; Chiellini, Bonucci, Barzagli; Asamoah, Pogba, Marchisio, Vidal, Lichtsteiner; Tevez, Llorente
Fiorentina’s Projected Lineup 4-3-3: Neto; Pasquai, Savic, Rodriguez, Diakite; Aquilani, Pizarro, Fernandez; Cuadrado, Matri, Illcic
