Juventus continue their pursuit of a ninth consecutive Serie A crown with a trip to Verona on Saturday evening.

Verona

Hellas Verona will have a tough task to maintain their unbeaten run in 2020 when they host the league leaders Juventus this evening.

The Gialloblu have registered three wins and three draws since the turn of the decade, climbing up to the 10th place on the Serie A standings, just two points behind sixth-placed Bologna – the closest spot which guarantees European football next season.

They drew 0-0 with Lazio last Wednesday, doing a favor to Juventus in the title race, but are now looking to get at least the same result against the reigning champions.

Juventus

Juventus will have the chance to put more pressure on Inter and extend the lead on the table to six points before Sunday’s Derby della Madonnina between the Nerazzurri and their city rivals AC Milan.

Maurizio Sarri’s boys got back on the winning ways with a 3-0 triumph over Fiorentina last time out, noting their 17th win in the 2019-20 Serie A campaign.

The Bianconeri managed to beat Verona only once in their last four top-flight trips to the Marc’Antonio Bentegodi Stadium, a 3-1 win back in December 2017.

Cristiano Ronaldo will be looking to become the first Juventus player who has managed to score in ten consecutive Serie A games with a goal against Verona this evening.

He is also chasing Batistuta and Quagliarella’s all-time record of netting in 11 successive games in top-flight Italian football.
