Head to Head Record
In 35 Serie A matches SPAL have only ever beaten Juventus once. I Bianconeri have won 22 of those games and 12 have finished as draws.
Juventus won the reverse fixture of this tie 2-0 this season. Last season, one game ended in a draw, while Juve triumphed in the other with a 4-1 victory.
Juventus enter this tie in red hot form, winning four of their last five league matches, including an impressive comeback win over Milan.
Despite being 16th, SPAL are actually in reasonably good form. They’ve won three of their last five league games including impressive wins over Roma and Lazio.
With both teams in decent form and Juve having one eye on the return leg against Ajax in the Champions League, an upset is a possibility if unlikely.
Here is how each team has performed in their last five matches.
|Cagliari 2-1 SPAL (7/4)||Juventus 2-1 AC Milan (6/4)|
|SPAL 1-0 Lazio (3/4)||Cagliari 0-2 Juventus (2/4)|
|Frosinone 0-1 SPAL (31/3)||Juventus 1-0 Emploi (30/3)|
|SPAL 2-1 Roma (16/3)||Genoa 2-0 Juventus (17/3)|
|Inter 2-0 SPAL (10/3)||Juventus 4-1 Udinese (8/3)|
SPAL certainly need a good result more than Juventus and of course have no European football to
Prediction: SPAL 0-2 Juventus
