Description: ROM Vs JUV Fantasy Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Juventus look to keep their winning run going as the club embarks on a new era
From being one of the most stable clubs in the region to now having shuffled two managers in the last couple of years, Juventus are still scouring for the right combination at the top. However, there traversing of managers has not had any impact on the club’s stronghold on the league with the side making a foray into Serie A 2020-21 as reigning champions.
And life under the tutelage of Pirlo got underway exactly as the club would have wanted. The side marauded its way to a dominating 3-0 win over Sampdoria, a performance which exulted why Juventus are once again considered outright favourites for this season’s title as well.
Elsewhere, AS Roma had a torrid start to new instalment of the marquee league. A botched defensive performance by them saw them being blown apart 3-0 by Verona, a showing which is the last thing the club would have wanted to follow up with a tie against Juventus.
ROM Vs JUV Fantasy Probable Winner
After a solid end to the foregone edition of the league, a 3-0 defeat to Verona is something which no one saw coming for AS Roma. It were results like these which saw the club in a quandary all last season, form the club knows it can be engulfed in this time around as well.
However, they are resigned to being handed out their second defeat on the bounce today. Their defence hardly inspires confidence, a backline which will be swept under the mat by Juventus.

ROM Vs JUV Fantasy Picks
Pau Lopez from AS Roma will be instilled into our side as the shot stopper for this encounter. The goal-keeper has shown what he’s capable of on ample occasions, a player who helped revive a floundering AS Roma defence last season.
Managers have gone, players have come in and departed but the one thing which has remained a constant at Juventus is their backline. This is a defensive setup which has traditionally been the foundation of the club’s consummate success.
After letting in the least number of goals last season, the club showed why its held in such esteem as a backline against Sampdoria. Throwing open the doors of this season with a cleansheet, Juventus look good for another today.
Also, with them up against an AS Roma which failed to score the last time around, a cleansheet for Juventus is extremely plausible. It sees us opt for Danilo, Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci who scored for the club the last time around.
After not getting a look in all across last season, Aaron Ramsey could finally make a place in Juventus’ setup this time around. We was reposed faith in by Pirlo who handed him a start against Sampdoria, one Ramsey reposed with an assist on the day.
Joining up is Juan Cuadrado while AS Roma see us opt for Henrikh Mkhitaryan who made his move to the club permanent this season after a solid on loan sortie the last time around. We have Bryan Cristante accompany him, a CDM whose ability to latch onto the aerial duels and recoveries will help the side occult a string of Juventus attacks.
After top scoring for Juventus last season, Cristiano Ronaldo was quick to settle into his groove this time around as well. He hit a goal and provided the one assist in the club’s season opener to see him be an instant pick for us.
With Dybala injured at the moment, Dejan Kulusevski was asked to step out for Juventus and he made sure he made full use of the opportunity. He scored the club’s first goal on the day, one set to see him retain his place in the playing 11.
AS Roma’s top scorer for two seasons now, striker Edin Dzeko as tradition will be the pick from the setup.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With a goal and assist the last time around, Ronaldo was an instant pick as our side’s captain while Ramsey is the vice-captain.
Lopez, Bonucci, Danilo, Chiellini, Ramsey, Juan, Bryan, Henrikh, Ronaldo, Dejan, Edin
