Juventus will be looking to take another step toward achieving qualification for the Champions League this weekend. The Old Lady will have home advantage on Sunday, as they clash with relegation-threatened Cremonese.
Serie A Preview
Juventus’ season has a completely different outlook now than it did just two months ago. Their points deduction was overturned, and it leaves them sitting second in the standings and on course to finish in a Champions League spot. That finish would have looked incredibly unlikely just a few months ago, but their recent form has helped them pull clear of the chasing pack. In fact, they now sit five points clear of AC Milan in the race for a top four finish.
The Old Lady come into this fixture in solid recent form, as they have landed victories in each of their previous two matches. The most recent of those was a 2-0 success on the road against Atalanta. Both goals in that success were netted in the second half, with Samuel Iling-Junior and Dusan Vlahovic scoring the goals.
Cremonese remain in the fight to stay in the Italian top-flight, but they will need a massive effort over the final four games of the season. At present, they sit 19th in the standings, and they are six away from safety. They do come into this showdown after winning twice over their previous five, while they have lost just once over that period.
But, draws have been a recurring issue throughout the campaign for Cremonese, as they have picked up 12 draws. Eight of those draws have come on the road, and that is something that they must address if they are to remain in the top-flight this term.
Juventus vs Cremonese Head to Head
Juventus holds an excellent record in this fixture, as they have never previously lost against Cremonese in Serie A. This will be the 16th time that the sides have met, with Juventus winning on eleven occasions and four fixtures being draws.
Juventus vs Cremonese Prediction
Juventus look to be on course to finish in a top four spot at this late stage of the season, and this doesn’t look to be a match where they will be dropping points. Cremonese’s recent form has been encouraging, but it’s hard to overlook the dominance of the Old Lady in this fixture.
