Livorno

Despite losing to Inter Milan, the Amarantos’ head honcho, Davide Nicola remained positive about the result. He stressed that the defeat was just a “step forward” to the club’s progress.

 

Livorno have not been living to expectations during its last 6 matches. Majority of them ended in a defeat, which seemed to be triggered during the Napoli’s thrashing. On a lighter note, its 3 consecutive losses was partially halted when the club forced a draw against Torino and then followed by a triumph over Atalanta. Although Nicola tried to see the brighter side of the defeat, it does not change the fact that they are just a few notches away from the relegation zone and with the upcoming battle pitted against Juventus, the club needs a major turning point in their performance on the pitch to survive the tight competition in the league.

 

Juventus

Juventus is on its way to the top. A slow start barely affected the performance of the incumbent champ as their future foresees a strong finish and a successful title defence. One of its manifestations of strength was the result of its match against another strong scudetto contender, Napoli. The Biaconneris kept a clean sheet and netted 3 goals.

 

Following the disappointing defeat to Fiorentina, Juventus has been very clinical lately. They have won 5 out of their last 6 matches in which they have managed to keep a clean sheet in 4 of them. It is also noticeable that the club averages for at least 2 goals in their previous encounters. Pitted against Livorno, Juve shall not waste the opportunity of reclaiming the top spot. The current board leader, AS Roma are experiencing a stalemate spell during its last 2 matches and as far as Juve is concerned, this is the perfect time to steal the spotlight and get back what is rightfully theirs.

 

Football betting tip: Livorno 1-3 Juventus

Juventus will definitely exploit the chance to regain their stature in Serie A. Against Livorno, expect the defending champ to dominate the match and eventually settle in the top spot.
