Despite starting the season on a backfoot, Juve have managed to find their rhythm with four consecutive wins.
Max Allegri looks to have returned his true self, leading the Bianconeri to a perfect start to the Champions League, including the win against Chelsea.
Prior to the international break, Juve picked up a thrilling win against Torino in the Turin derby where Manuel Locatelli scored a late winner.
However, the fitness issues of several key players like Paulo Dybala, Alvaro Morata, Weston McKennie and Adrien Rabiot would be a huge concern for Allegri ahead of the game against Roma.

Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma turn out to be a side to watch out for due to their impressive start to this season.
The Portuguese manager, despite losing the derby against Lazio, has collected 5 wins in 7 games in Serie A so far.
Tammy Abraham and Lorenzo Pellegrini have impressed the most since Mourinho’s arrival, with both players contributing to 9 goals altogether. However, the former’s participation against Juve is still doubtful after suffering a niggle during the international break.
A win against Turrin giants on Sunday would take Giallorossi closer to the second-place AC Milan.
