Juventus vs Hellas Verona Preview: Match preview and prediction | Serie A 2019/20
- The Italian champions, Juventus, will look to get back to winning ways this weekend as they welcome Hellas Verona.
Juventus will host 11th placed Hellas Verona this weekend, and they'll be looking to bounce back from the goalless draw away at Fiorentina last weekend. The result of that early slip was a fall to third place in the standings for the first time since March 2018.
Perhaps Juve had one eye on their Champions League encounter against Atletico Madrid, and that game ended in a 2-2 draw midweek, as the Bianconeri let a two-goal lead slip out of their grasp. The UCL may be the holy grail but Juve will certainly look to continue their dominance on the domestic scene.
On their way to this encounter, Verona has won once, drawn once, and lost once - against AC Milan last time out. They'll be looking to throw a spanner in the works of Juve, as they like to keep things pretty tight at the back and will be keen to defend solidly against Maurizio Sarri's men, hitting them on the counter.
Juventus have won their last 9 home matches against Verona in all competitions and would be looking forward to a routine day at the office.
