Fresh off a Super Coppa Italia win vs Napoli and a 2-0 win against Bologna on Sunday, the old Lady is back at it at the Allianz stadium hosting Spal in a quarter final match, on Wednesday evening.
Juventus is 7 points away from the top of Serie A, and gaining momentum with clashes against Roma and Napoli in the coming weeks, as this years Serie A will come down to the wire.
In their previous Coppa Italia game, Juventus has beaten Genoa after extra time. Juventus is now on a 2-game winning streak during which they scored 4 goals, conceded 0 goals, and won the Italian Super Cup against Napoli. In their last Serie A game, Juventus was hosting Bologna, and they were the better team with 52% of ball possession, 11 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 6 big chances created, and 86% of the correct passes. With one scored goal in each half, Juventus has won this game 2-0. Sandro and Dybala are the only injured players for Juventus. It’s likely Ronaldo will not be playing in this game, but Juventus has enough quality left to beat most of the teams, especially Spal. Juventus is in good form, and they have lost only 2 of their last 20 games, and they are one of the most consistent teams in Europe.
Spal is competing in Serie B this season after getting relegated last season, and they are doing a solid job. Spal is in 5th place with 33 points, and they are just 5 points away from the top. Spal is solid on both ends this season, and they have scored 26 goals while conceding 17 goals. Spal has surprisingly beaten Sassuolo 0-2 on the road. Spal is undefeated in their last 4 games, and they have scored 7 goals while conceding only 2 goals. In their last game in Serie B, Spal was playing against Cremonese on the road, and they have had 46% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 3 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and 76% of the correct passes. This game has ended in a 1-1 draw. Tumminello is the only injured for Spal at this time. Spal still has a good chance to get promoted to Serie A without going through the playoffs, but even if they don’t Spal will most likely go to the promotion playoffs.
Spal has beaten Juventus only once, and it was at home. Juventus has won all three home games against Spal, and I think they will keep doing it. Juventus is a much better team here, in better form, and with more depth. Juventus is playing well on both ends, and even without Ronaldo, Juventus has a lot of quality depth to beat Spal as they have righted the ship after the disastrous loss vs Inter a few weeks ago.
Juventus 3-0 Spal
