Stadium: Marc’Antonio Bentegodi

Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi has been a bit of a bogey ground for Juventus in recent years, with Verona claiming a win and two draws from their last three meetings here.
However, we’re backing the Old Lady to exorcise those past demons, as they are a class apart on this season’s Serie A form.
A Look At Verona’s Betting Odds
Verona did produce their best performance of the campaign when upsetting AC Milan 3-0 at this venue a couple of weeks ago.
However, Fabio Pecchia’s side have generally struggled since securing promotion back up to Italy’s top flight following a year in Serie B.
The second-from-bottom outfit have lost six of their nine home matches, with Napoli winning 3-1 here, Fiorentina 5-0 and Lazio 3-0.
A Look At Juventus’ Betting Odds
There was talk of Juventus being in decline earlier this season, with the bid for a seventh straight Serie A title hampered by some uncharacteristically sloppy defending.
However, Massimiliano Allegri appears to have successfully addressed that problem, with Barcelona, Napoli, Inter Milan and Roma among the teams kept at bay during the current run of eight straight clean sheets.
Juve can look forward to facing Tottenham in the Champions League and are just a point off the top of their domestic table due to a sustained stretch of strong displays at the back.
Up front, Paulo Dybala has been leading the way this term with a dozen league goals, but he was rested last week and has been linked with a player-plus-cash swap deal involving Manchester United and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
