Juventus will welcome Venezia to Allianz Stadium this Sunday for another exciting game of the 2021/22 Serie A season.
Venue: Allianz Stadium (Turin)
Juventus have lost two of their last five home games in all competitions.
The hosts have scored 2+ goals in five of their last ten games in all competitions.
The Old Lady have conceded 30 league goals this season. Only Inter Milan have conceded fewer goals.
Venezia have conceded 61 goals this season. Only Empoli, Cagliari and Salernitana have conceded more than they have conceded this season.
The visitors have lost 21 times in the league this season, which is more than any other side.
They have lost their last eight league games and are winless in nine matches.
Head to head
Juventus are unbeaten in nine meetings with Venezia, with five wins and four draws against the visitors.
Latest performances in all competitions
Juventus will look to take maximum points from this game as they continue on their quest for Champions League football next season.
The Old Lady did their chances of playing in Europe’s Premier competitions next season a lot of good when they came from a goal down to beat Sassuolo 2-1 last time out.
The win extended their unbeaten run to four games and kept them eight points ahead of fight-placed AS Roma in the race for the Champions League.
With just four games left to play, Max Allegri’s side can all but seal their place in the UCL next season if they win this game. And given their record against Venezia, they will fancy their chances of winning this game and extending their unbeaten run to five games.
Possible Juventus starting line-up
Wojciech Szczesny; Danilo, Matthijs de Ligt, Leonardo Bonucci, Alex Sandro; Federico Bernardeschi, Denis Zakaria, Adrien Rabiot; Dusan Vlahovic, Paulo Dybala, Alvaro Morata.
Injured: Mattia De Sciglio, Juan Cuadrado, Arthur, Manuel Locatelli, Weston McKennie, Kaio Jorge, Federico Chiesa
While Juventus are seeking to confirm their place in the UCL next season, Venezia will look to avoid dropping to Serie B in this game.
The visitors are currently rooted at the bottom of the league table, six points behind Cagliari, who are occupying 17th place in the league standings. With just five games to play for Venezia, a loss in this game might end any chance of a miraculous escape.
With their head coach Paolo Zanetti now gone, they will have to find a way to get maximum points from the remaining games.
Given that they are without a win in the league since February, while they have also lost each of their last eight games, a positive result looks unlikely in this game.
Possible Venezia starting line-up
Niki Maenpaa; Aleš Matějů, Mattia Caldara, Pietro Ceccaroni, Ridgeciano Haps; Mickael Cuisance, Ethan Ampadu, Gianluca Busio; Mattia Aramu; David Okereke, Thomas Henry.
Injured: Marco Modolo, Tyronne Ebuehi, Sergio Romero, Luca Lezzerini
Juventus 2-0 Venezia
