JUV vs ROM Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Serie A giants Juventus will be looking to extend their unbeaten streak when they host AS Roma in the league at Juventus Stadium (Allianz Stadium), in Turin, on Sunday night (IST).
The Old Lady is now too accustomed to lead the Serie A table that anything other than a top place for them is seen as an aberration in the top-flight Italian Football.
And everything is as it should be in the 2018-19 season with Juventus sitting comfortably at the summit with a massive eight points separating them from Napoli who are 2nd in the table.
To put the cherry on the top, and to muffle the lingering hopes of challengers like Napoli and Inter Milan, for the first time in the last seven season which has brought seven Scudetto for the Allianz Stadium side, Massimiliano Allegri’s men remain unbeaten after the 17 rounds of matches.
The two-time Champions League winners have lost just two games this season, only in Europe against Manchester United and Young Boys.
Last time around Juventus beat Torino in the Turin Derby courtesy of Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalty. Though it extended Juve’s clean sheet streak to five games in the league, it highlighted the problems in front of the goal for the reigning Italian Champions.
AS Roma, on the other hand, have failed to recapture the form of last season. They remain a massive 22 points off the pace heading into this match. For a team which made into the last four of the Champions League last season, it’s a very bad return.
No wonder, manager Eusebio Di Francesco is coming under serious pressure. He is running out of time to out Roma’s stuttering season back on track.
However, the recent signs are showing towards things going in the right direction. The Giallorossi have lost just once in the last seven Serie A matches, winning the last game against 3-2 against Genoa. But the damage has already done as too many draws and losses have left the club far behind from challenging for the ultimate prize.
The most realistic target for Roma should be to finish in the top-4. Having said that, even that can’t be taken for granted by any means as AC Milan are very much looking like a side ready to break into the top four.

Injured – Juan Cuadrado, Andrea Barzagli and Jao Cancelo all have been ruled out from the home clash against AS Roma.
Suspended – None.
Questionable – Rodrigo Bentancur will be available for selection after serving a one-game suspension in the last match.

JUV vs ROM Dream11 Playing 11 – (Probable) –
Juventus– Szczesny (GK), De Sciglio, Bonucci, Chiellini, Sandro, Bentancur, Pjanic, Matuidi, Dybala, Mandzukic, Ronaldo
AS Roma – Olsen (GK), Florenzi, Fazio, Manolas, Kolarov, N’Zonzi, Cristante, Under, Zaniolo, Kluivert, Dzeko
JUV vs ROM Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
Both Ronaldo and Mandzukic can be deadly and have been outstanding this season. Dzeko is a big doubt, and there is no like-for-like replacement at Roma. We expect the playmakers and the midfielders to command the game for the visitors.
We have overlooked Ronaldo because of the form of Mandzukic and the points he commands. But we have made up for that in the midfield as the likes of Pjanic, Matuidi, Dybala, Under and Kluivert are all in the center.
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
AS Roma’s patchy form could be down to the big injury they have been enduring all season. But even at full strength, a trip to Turin to face Juventus is always a daunting task.
We expect Juventus to win the match.
