The stats tell the story, and Juventus have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, seeing their opponents hit 7 goals in all. Defensively, Juve have been far from perfect. In any event, we will just have to wait and see whether that trend will be replicated here in this game.

Team News: Fiorentina
Borja Valero (Unknown Injury) and Aleksandr Kokorin (Hip Injury) will be missing for Fiorentina manager Giuseppe Iachini.
Team News: Juventus
Juve manager Andrea Pirlo has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Merih Demiral (Muscle Fatigue) and Federico Chiesa (Hamstring Injury) miss out here.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Fiorentina might well have a job on their hands to hit the back of the net against this Juventus lineup who we think should be able to get on the scoresheet themselves in a winning performance. We’re therefore seeing a narrow 0-1 win for Juventus when the full-time whistle blows.
