It is crunch time for Juventus in their quest to become Serie A Champions as they go into this penultimate game of the season one point clear of their title rivals AC Milan. Antonio Conte side take the trip to Cagliari, as visitors can watch all the action from Stadio Sant’Elia using Bet365’s Serie a Live Stream service.
Keeping their attention firmly on their own form – thus avoid worrying about how Milan get on against Inter Milan this weekend – Juventus need to pick up three points this weekend to put them in pole position going into the final day.
After a season that has seen them remain unbeaten in the league, they are now on the home straight, but this doesn’t mean they can let their form slip.
It is time to put in two professional performances and win the league.
They need to bounce back from the disappointing 1-1 draw with Lecce last time out too. With it being so tight at the top, they cannot afford to drop points like this again. Especially when it appears that Milan are in destructive form right now.
Juventus have won their last four away games in succession though and haven’t conceded a goal on the road in five successive matches. They will be after more of the same on Sunday afternoon.
As for Cagliari, there is no doubt that they are in the shadows of Juventus in terms of the build up to this game, but this is something they should relish. They need to take the game to the league leaders and look to cause an upset.
They still do need the points for their own survival hopes of course. They may well be six point clear of the bottom three, but they are not mathematically safe quite yet and they would love the get the point they need against such high profile opponents.
Looking at their recent form, Cagliari have been extremely inconsistent of late. The last five games have seen them lose three, draw two and win one. It seems fair to say that you never quite know what to expect from them.
In Mauricio Pinilla they have an in-form striker though and he will look to cause the Juventus defence some problems. The visitors are favourites though as they look to move a step closer to the Serie A title.
