The champion Juventus host Cagliari at the Allianz Stadium in their first game for 2020
The champion Juventus host Cagliari at the Allianz Stadium in their first game for 2020, but they are not facing an easy opponent. Let’s take a look at this fixture in Turin in our free football betting tips for the weekend.
Juventus enter the new year at second place in the Serie A, which has not happened from many, many years. But right now Juve are behind the leader Inter Milan, so we have a real title race this season. Both teams have 42 points won, but Inter Milan are the team with the better goal difference at the moment.
Juventus said goodbye to 2019 with a win in the Serie A. Maurizio Sarri’s team visited Sampdoria at the Luigi Ferraris and fought for a 2-1 win. Paulo Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo scored for the Old Lady, who is now feeling the pressure of having a real fight for the title.
Thanks to the rise of Inter Milan, we are now having a real title race in the Serie A again. What Juventus must do is get used to this pressure again and they must now show their champion character. Otherwise, they can lose the title for a first time since a lot of time.
Cagliari won’t be an easy opponent for the champions. The Rossoblu are one of the revelations of the season so far. Usually being positioned around the middle of the table, now Cagliari are 6th in the standings, having showed some great results so far.
But Cagliari sent 2019 with two consecutive losses, so they will try to not concede a third one on Monday. In their last game Rolando Maran’s boys travelled to face Udinese at the Dacia Arena, but suffered a 1-2 defeat. Joao Pedro scored for Cagliari, but Seko Fofana got Udinese the win just one minute later.
That’s what we had to say about the game between Juventus and Cagliari in our free football betting tips for the weekend. Can the Old Lady start 2020 with a win? Let’s see.
