JUV vs VER Fantasy Preview:
In a rocky start to the season, Juventus relished a rare reprieve in the midweek after their visit to Ukraine bore handsome fruits with the Italian champions thumping Dynamo Kyiv with consummate ease. Alvaro Morata struck twice to provide a solitary shaft of hope in an otherwise ailing campaign for Juventus so far in Serie A.
New coach, Andrea Pirlo is still to snap out of the fire of baptism as Juventus continues languishing in the seventh place, which is pretty much uncharacteristic of the Italian champions. To add to Pirlo’s woes, the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo who is yet to recover fully from Covid-19, has exposed the sketeon of the attacking force of the Bianconeri.
On the contrary, their opponents, Hallas Verona has struggled early in the league too with the team barely scraping out scraping points from 4 games and is just one adrift of their counterparts from Turin. However, the fact that seems deeply fascinating is their dogged defence that has so far leaked a solitary goal from four games and will definitely be the biggest impediment along the way of the Old Lady.
This fixture will be crucial for both the teams, despite the scales flipping towards Juventus with a team that can challenge any European giant. A victory for Verona can set catapult them ahead of Juventus momentarily while a victory for the Old lady will act as a massive impetus before their midweek clash against Barcelona. These are our fantasy picks for today’s game.

JUV vs VER: Head to head
Juventus has dominated the proceedings between these two sides with 6 victories out of 10 games. Verona has managed to win two while they shared the spoils in a couple of occasions. However, the latest clash between these two sides in February rolled out in Verona’s favour as they stunned Juve with a late spot-kick rescinding Ronaldo’s early effort.
JUV vs VER: Probable Teams:
Juventus: Szczesny; Danilo, Bonucci, Demiral; Cuadrado, Arthur, Bentancur, Frabotta; Ramsey, Dybala; Morata
Verona: Silvestri; Empereur, Ceccherini, Lovato; Faraoni, Ilic, Tameze, Lazovic; Colley, Zaccagni; Di Carmine
Picks to consider:
Paulo Dybala is one of the most potent strikers in the ranks of Juventus. However, considering the towering presence of Ronaldo, The Argentine sensation doesn’t get much limelight to showcase his skills. This is his time and he will be a big name to watch out for.
Alvaro Morata scored a brace in the last game that saw Juventus secure a Champions League victory. He will be eager to grab more netters before the impending return of Ronaldo and this will significantly propel his performance.
1. Paulo Dybala
2. Di Carmine
Match Prediction – Who will win today?
Juventus is undoubtedly the favourite to win this game, however, their recent form in Serie A has been highly questionable and Pirlo is struggling to make ends meet. Their last week’s draw will be working as a nightmare for them unless they can get their coveted opening goal.
