AS Roma Keeps Serie A Dreams Alive in Match against JuventusPublished May 14, 2017 by Florin P
Only a miracle can send the Serie A trophy to the nation’s capital, but AS Roma is poised to give Juventus a run for their money. (7:45 p.m UK Time).
AS Roma lost precious points at home against Lazio and that disappointing defeat could come back to haunt them. For the time being they are fighting a seemingly losing battle, trying to close on eight point gap and overtake Juventus. With just three rounds left, there is no room for error and they need victory tonight, while hoping for the leaders to fail miserably. The visitors are tired after the Champions League semifinal, but they only need another point to secure another Serie A trophy.
One of the Best Seasons for as Roma
The home side had its perfect record ruined two weeks ago by arch rivals Lazio. Before that match they didn’t lose a single game the entire season and were still very much alive in the race to win the trophy this season. Now they are trailing the leaders at a distance and need to play their best game to stand a chance. After the inspiring victory over AC Milan away from home, they once again believe in their chances and will come out firing on all cylinders.
AS Roma has the advantage of featuring the best starting formation, as opposed to Juventus who features a lineup of tired players. They play the last major home game this season and the crowd will be roaring with enthusiasm. There is also a lot of pressure for the home side since they can’t settle for a single point.
Juventus Has Bigger Fish to Fry
The visitors are clearly unimpressed by the otherwise stellar home record that AS Roma can still brag about. They know all too well that this championship is virtually done and dusted, since they meet two weak opponents in the remaining rounds. That’s why they will not throw everything they’ve got in this match and gladly settle for a point. That’s why risk-averse punters should take the coverage of a 0:0 Asian Handicap offered by bet365 Sports and bet on the home side and even odds.
