Juventus hosts SPAL
The champion Juventus hosts SPAL at the Allianz Stadium in a match from the sixth round of the Italian Serie A. Let’s discuss this fixture in Turin in our soccer matches tomorrow.
Juventus approach this game from the second place in the Serie A – certainly not a position they are used to find themselves at. Right now the Old Lady is behind the leader Inter Milan, but the difference between these two teams is just two points, so there’s no room to panic.
Few days ago Juve did the job against Brescia away from home, even without their star player Cristiano Ronaldo. Maurizio Sarri put Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain in attack, but neither one of them scored for the 2-1 win at the Rigamonti. Brescia’s Jhon Chancellor scored himself an own goal, while Miralem Pjanic scored the winner for the champions.
The good news for Juventus is that Cristiano Ronaldo is returning to the pitch after an injury. The Portuguese striker will probably start the game from the beginning.
Let’s talk about SPAL a little bit. At this moment they are 19th in the league with only three points, beng in the relegation zone. So far the team have a record of one win and four losses, which is not good. Their only win so far came against Lazio.
In the previous round SPAL hosted Lecce at the Stadio Paolo Mazza, but suffered a 1-3 loss. Federico Di Francesco’s goal in the first half didn’t help them that much.
We are not going to surprise you in our soccer matches tomorrow, saying that Juventus will most likely win against SPAL at the Allianz Stadium. The Bianconeri are starting to realize that this season they might have a real competition for the title, so all of the points they can win would be pretty crucial.
