Juventus vs Roma: Match Preview and Prediction

AS Roma and Juventus will battle out for the top spot in the Serie A when they go head-to-head on Sunday evening at the Allianz Arena.

Juventus' start to the new season sans Cristiano Ronaldo saw disappointing results as they lost and drew their first four games before embarking on a winning run, the Bianconeri will be hoping for a repeat of their last game which was a 1-0 win over Torino. 

While Roma under new manager Jose Mourinho has been satisfactory as their new signing Tammy Abraham has been on top form and firing on all cylinders left to right. Roma will come into this on the back of a 2-0 win over Empoli.
