Chievo v Juventus preview
Juventus trail leaders Napoli by just 2 points at the summit, having mounted a sustained charge with a remarkable run of 11 consecutive league victories – just one short of their top-flight record.
That sequence forms part of a wider run of 14 wins in their last 15 matches in all competitions, including Wednesday’s 3-0 Coppa Italia victory over Inter.
Juve have also conceded only one goal in their last 6 games.
Mario Mandzukic and Kwadwo Asamoah are both out injured, but the Turin outfit possess one of the most potent attacking threats in Serie A in the form of Paulo Dybala, who has been directly involved in half of Juve’s 38 goals this season (12 goals, 7 assists).
Alvaro Morata ended a 20-match goal drought to net twice against Inter and will hope he has now turned a corner.
Chievo have won just one of their last 25 Serie A meetings with Juve (D7, L17), and the departure of top scorer Alberto Paloschi to Swansea on Friday could hinder their chances of improving on that record.
Chievo have conceded 4 goals in their last outing – a 4-1 defeat at Lazio.
Bologna v Sampdoria preview
Bologna head into the game with a patchwork last 5 results; gaining impressive victories against Milan and Sassuolo, but faltering against the likes of Chievo.
Bologna have scored at least 2 goals in 5 of their last 6 home matches in Serie A.
Sampdoria have been dreadful of late, losing their last 3 games, and having lost to the team directly below them – Carpi – 2 matches ago, are on a very slippery slope to the bottom 3.
They have only won one away match all season: W1-D3-L6.
Samp have relied on Eder (12 league goals) to power them to victory – so it will be difficult for them to have much of an impact after his move to Inter.
