AS Roma Form & Balance Check
The bottom line is that Roma are playing a more than reasonable season after all. In the league, coach Mourinho’s team is still on course for the Europa League, where the club from the Eternal City is already in the last 16. In the Europa League, the big match against the Basques of Real Sociedad awaits next Thursday.
If we take a look at AS’ last game, we see that coach Mourinho’s team really didn’t cover itself with glory. Against Cremonese, who were still winless, the Romans lost 1:2. To make matters worse, coach Mourinho also had to take an early shower. The Portuguese was sent off for the third time this season.
Is Roma losing their nerve?
So far, things have been going quite well for Roma. However, Dybala & Co. have only won two of their last five games. An incredibly difficult task awaits them on Sunday in the form of Juventus. Without coach Mourinho on the sidelines, the defence will once again have to do the talking. With just 21 goals conceded, the Romans have one of the best defensive lines in the league. In comparison, the attack looks quite manageable with 31 goals. World champion Paulo Dybala is Rome’s top scorer with eight goals and seven assists
AS Roma facts & analysis
– AS Roma are in 5th place in the table with 44 points.
– Last lost with 1:2 against Cremonese
– Only 2 wins from last 5 matches
Juventus form & balance check
The Old Lady from Turin doesn’t seem to let the 15 points deduction deter them from their path towards international business. Juventus also won their game during the week. Opponent there, the city rival FC Torino. With a 4-2 win, coach Allegri’s men impressively proved who is number one in the city. The success in the derby was already the fourth victory in a row and the Old Lady is working its way ever closer to the international places. They are only six points behind sixth place, which is currently held by Atalanta Bergamo. In their current form, it is only a matter of time before Juve catches up.
Win number five?
Together with Lazio, the Old Lady has the second best defence in the league. In a league-wide comparison, only the league leader and upcoming champions Napoli concede fewer goals (15). The good defence should also lead to victory against Roma. During the week against FC Torino, all fans of the Old Lady had reason to rejoice. Paul Pogba made his comeback after more than eight months of injury. The 2018 World Cup winner can still tip the scales in the battle for international places.
Juventus facts & analysis
– Currently in 7th place.
– Last win 4:2 against FC Torino
– 4 wins in a row
Predicted line-up – last update on 4 March 2023
Romans won’t be making any big changes compared to last week’s 2-1 defeat. Coach Mourinho, who is probably only in the stands, will send the same eleven into the race. Belotti will play up front. He will be supported by Pellegrini and Dybala. Otherwise, no major changes are expected. The Old Lady from Torino recently won four games in a row and we therefore strongly expect them to go into the match against Roma unchanged. Kean and Di Maria are again up front.
