Will Juventus Stay On Top Of Serie A?


Bookmark and Share

By Football Italiano

Friday 18 October 2013

Serie A holders Juventus continued their splendid run of form (WWDWWWW) at home to AC Milan on the 6th of October. Juve currently nestle just two points behind league leaders Roma. The question is, how long can Roma keep up their own startlingly good run? They’ve won seven of seven played, scored twenty and conceded just one.



Napoli sit second in Serie A, above Juventus on goal difference alone. Looking down rather than up, there’s a five point gap separating Juve’s nearest threat, Internazionale. Sterner tests are coming, though Juventus may take heart from the fact that Napoli were held to a draw by relegation fodder Sassuolo last month.


Next Up: Fiorentina


Juve travel to the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Sunday, and while Fiorentina have only won three so far this season, they’ve only lost one. La Viola lost Stevan Jovetic over the summer but managed to secure the services of Mario Gomez (who should be back from injury by Sunday), also adding Spain’s speedy, experienced winger Joaquin, formerly of Malaga; and Bolton’s versatile Marcos Alonso.


Juventus fans will be hoping that Sebastian Giovinco and Giorgio Chiellini can repeat their previous performances at the weekend. The bookies certainly see Juventus as favourites to win, with www.betfair.com/sport amongst others currently offering somewhere in the region of 13/10 on an away victory for the Old Lady.


Odds on the side topping Serie A at the end of the season are short right now – generally a little worse than evens. You can back Napoli in the same market for around 4/1, and Roma for a similar price.


Juventus have strength and class all over the pitch, as befits a side that are tipped to retain top spot in the league that many consider the best in the world. The much in demand French international midfielder Paul Pogba is happy – and effective – either up at the sharp end or helping out in defence. At the other end of the age spectrum, Andrea Pirlo, at 34, shows no sign of decrepitude and continues to boss the midfield.


Stats Don’t Lie


Juventus are statistically the finest club in Italian football history, with, amongst numerous other honours, 29 league titles. A club doesn’t earn the nickname “The Girlfriend Of Italy” easily, but being the only outfit on the planet to have won every single international competition helps. Manager Antonio Conte will be confident that his stellar team can climb the short distance to the top of the Serie A table sooner rather than later.
