Novara v Juventus, Sunday 14:00
With their Serie A run looking all but over , Novara would seem likely candidates to drop back down to Italy’s second tier this season as Bet365 offer an exclusive live stream and post free bets and point punters in the direction of table-topping visitors Juventus on Sunday.
Attilio Tesser’s side currently lie eight points from safety and despite a recent improvement in performances, have a hard end-of-season run in that will certainly make points hard to come by.
This weekend will be undoubtedly be one of the main contributors to that deduction as Juventus look to continue their march to the 2011-12 Scudetto, unfortunately at the expense of Novara.
The Old Lady have opened up a three point gap over closest challengers AC Milan and are inches away from completing an unbeaten season with league title in hand.
Antonio Conte’s men have conceded an incredible average of just 0.47 goals per away game this season, managing clean sheets in 65% of their fixtures on unfamiliar soil.
Fabio Quagliarella looks likely to return to the starting line-up for Sunday’s visitors following a period out through suspension at the expense of Alessandro Matri who takes his place on the suspension list.
Michel Morganella will be suspended for Novara, with Giuseppe Gemiti likely to take his place while Giuseppe Mascara could earn a starting berth at the expense of Takayuki Morimoto.
Juve have managed to concede just 18 goals this campaign and considering that Novara have the second worst attack in the Italian top flight, that record doesn’t seem likely to be tarnished this weekend.
Conte’s side have won their last three away outings including a thumping at Fiorentina and although the Biancoazzurri will be fighting for their survival amongst Italy’s elite, are likely to be further condemned this weekend when they host the favourites for the league title.
