Juventus needs only one point in the next three games to secure their 6th consecutive title in Italian championship and their 33rd overall. And what better way to defend the title than to stay unbeaten against your biggest rival and the closest opponent at their ground.
That is the most significant motive for Roma in this match. Their fans were pretty upset after a defeat against Lazio in Derby Della Capitale, and there were some unpleasant scenes after that game. This is why the home team can't afford a bad result in this fixture.

In the last 10 games overall, they have just one defeat, and that was against the Napoli in the second leg of semifinals of Coppa Italia, but that failure wasn't painful because Juventus advanced to the finals after winning 3-1 in the first game.

Although Juventus is playing low-efficient games on the road, tonight's match will be completely different comparing to the previous ones. They have highly motivated Roma opposite to themselves, and we are sure that the home team will play offensive and will try to score as many goals as possible. Edin Dzeko's absence will be a huge blow for them, but don't think that this will affect Roma's style of play. This will force the Old Lady to be a bit more offensive, and that is why we advise you to play Over 2.5 goals in this match.
For you who are brave, we propose a longshot. Over 1.5 goals in first half time.
Goals: Over 2.5
Goals: Over 1.5 HT
