- Date – December 30th, 2023

Team Form – Recent Performances
Juventus have begun the season extremely well and their recent draw with Inter Milan is the only time they’ve dropped points in their last seven games. Juventus are well equipped to deal with the challenges of Serie A, and they’ll be confident that they go all the way this season.
Roma have had a mixed start to this campaign and although they sit fourth in the table at this current moment, they would like to be closer to the top of the table. Dealing with European commitments could take its toll later in the season but Champions League qualification for the Rome side must be the priority.
Tactical Battle – Managers’ Strategies Unveiled
Max Allegri is a versatile manager who’s used several strategies and approaches to earn success at a number of clubs including Juventus and AC Milan. Without having a preferred style, Allegri has proven to be flexible on numerous occasions depending on the opposition and that ability to adapt has helped win many trophies.
Jose Mourinho’s greatest successes have often been built on strong defences with the ability to soak pressure before pushing up the pitch quickly. A serial winner in numerous countries, Mourinho is well-equipped to deal with all styles and he’s also become a master of making the most of football’s most minor details including having a full awareness of the rules and using them to his advantage.
Key Players – Influential Figures on the Pitch
For Juventus, the partnership of Dusan Vlahovic and Federico Chiesa has been instrumental in them making a superb start to this season. The pair have nine goals between them this season, but they’ve developed a great understanding on the pitch and their relationship has proven to be a nightmare for Serie A defenders this season.
At the other end of the pitch, Juventus have been mightily impressive in defence with only nine goals conceded up until December 4th. The successful Juventus sides of the past under Allegri have been built on solid foundations and it looks like they’re on their way to replicating that secure form this season.
For Roma, the bulk of their excellent play this season has come from the superb Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian forward is a known presence in both Italy and England, and he’s the man responsible for keeping Roma in the hunt for a top four place with six goals to his name by the start of December. Backed by the brilliant Pablo Dybala, Roma look strong in the forward area of the pitch.
As well as having goals in the attacking areas, Roma’s midfield has also been able to help when it comes to hitting the net. Stephan El Shaarawy, Houssem Aouar, and Bryan Cristante have also contributed with goals this season and that can be a big help if the forward players hit a barren run of form.
Head-to-Head History – Past Encounters
Despite not possessing the rich history of other Italian encounters, Juventus and Roma has largely been a test of each other’s ability rather than a competition based on trophies, history, or region.
Both sides have had eras of success and are aware of what it takes to reach the business end of European competitions, but Juventus have a clear edge when it comes to obtaining glory when it matters most.
Since 2003, the teams have clashed on 49 occasions with Juventus coming out on top in 26 games compared to that of Roma’s 12. The remaining 11 games have been drawn. This is very much a fixture that belongs to Juventus, but can they enhance that excellent record on December 30th.
Pre-match Analysis – Crucial Factors
Juventus rightly begin this fixture significant favours and Roma will need something special to stop the home side adding to their impressive tally this season. Juventus, especially at home, are a hard day’s work for any team in world football and with Chiesa and Vlahovic in fine form, they’ll be confident they can breach the defences of Roma and Mourinho.
With Roma also posing an attacking threat thanks to their firepower, Juventus may wish to play it cautiously and look to hit Roma with a quick counter-attack. Mourinho will choose his moments for his Roma side to take chances as they certainly have goals in their ranks, but they’ll need to take full advantage as Juventus won’t give them many opportunities.
