Finally, Italian Serie A is starting with Chievo Verona v Juventus! Champions, Juventus, are opening the new season with a match away at Chievo Verona. Juventus will definitely show off its class in this match; also, their star signing – Cristiano Ronaldo – will definitely be looking to score a goal or two.
Our Tips and Predictions For This Game:
Juventus is the firm favourite in this game. They have added Cristiano Ronaldo and some other great players to the squad, so it is really hard to imagine that they will not win the title again this season. Chievo Verona is a very weak team and will battle to avoid relegation again this season. 888sports offers 1.60 for Juventus’ win with a two or more goal difference, which we believe is a great value bet.
Weaker side, Chievo Verona, managed to stay in Serie A thanks to three wins in last three matches. Central midfielders, Lucas Castro and Samuel Bastien, were sold to Cagliari and Standard Liege, respectively; they bought 10 players including centre backs Federico Barba from Fiorentina and Joel Obi from Torino. Unfortunately for them, Barba is injured and will not play.
The Italian champions are ready to defend the title over and over again. They boosted their squad with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Emre Can, Leonardo Bonucci and Joao Cancelo; club legend Gianluigi Buffon left the club alongside Gonzalo Higuain, Mattia Caldara, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Kwadwo Asamoah. All in all, they gave up a little and gained a lot.
