Contributor’s Pick

According to Head-2-Head statistics, the previous six encounters between these two clubs have resulted in five wins for Juventus and only a solitary draw. Juventus have not only won their last eleven Serie A matches, but have also scored a minimum of two goals in their previous six away games.

With Juventus being undefeated against Chievo in last eleven matches in all competitions, the Turin-based club will start as favorites. Jvuentus are expected to win, with 2-0 being the most probable scoreline.

“We’re back to playing in a way that you would expect to see from a Juventus team and we always believed that we would turn things around. That said, even we were not expecting to go on such a great winning streak.

At the end of the day, the most important thing beyond any records is that we have recaptured that ruthless mentality that has made this club what it is.

Sunday’s game against Chievo won’t be easy and we will need to be at our very best to return with all three points. Let’s not forget that we are still only second in the table. From now on, any side that puts a good run together will automatically put themselves in the Scudetto picture.”

– Andrea Barzagli, Juventus.
