Welcome to our Roma vs Juventus preview, predictions and head to head. The Serie A season is just one week old, but already there are signs that we are not going to have a runaway winner like last season. Roma, who finished second last season, drew the opening match against Verona. They will want to do better, but against last year’s runaway winners, they may be happy with a draw. But perhaps not after they saw Juventus’s performance last weekend. With so many players leaving in the close season, Juventus looked a shadow of last season’s team. There can be no doubt that they are rebuilding, but giving to much credence to that or the loss to Udinese last weekend, may be foolhardy.
