Juventus and Roma will be looking to maintain their positive starts to the 2022/23 Serie A season as they prepare to face off in Turin this weekend.
Jose Mourinho’s visitors have picked up successive wins so far in league action, while Massimiliano Allegri’s hosts have racked up four points from a possible six.
Both coaches are under pressure to break the recent Milanese stranglehold on the Scudetto with this match offering a potential indication of their expectations for the campaign.
Mourinho’s success in the UEFA Europa Conference League last season eased some of the pressure on the Portuguese boss but Allegri needs to prove he can lead Juve back to league glory.

Juventus vs. Roma predicted lineups
Allegri is still battling against a growing injury list in Turin with summer signing Paul Pogbag sidelined with a long-term issue. Angel Di Maria is not expected to be fit for this weekend and Leonardo Bonucci is a doubt, but Wojciech Szczesny is back.
Mattia De Sciglio could return to the starting lineup, while Allegri confirmed he is considering throwing new signing Arkadiusz Milik straight into the first XI.
Juventus predicted lineup (4-3-3): Szczesny (GK) — Sandro, Bremer, Rugani, De Sciglio — Rabiot, Locatelli, McKennie — Kostic, Vlahovic, Cuadrado
Mourinho has fewer injuries to contend with this weekend but Georginio Wijnaldum and Nicolo Zaniolo are both out of action for the visitors.
However, the experienced head coach could also reshuffle his options, with Nemanja Matic and Nicola Zalewskic set to come back into the fold. Paulo Dybala is set to start against his old club.
Roma predicted lineup (3-4-3): Patricio (GK) — Ibanez, Smalling, Mancini — Spinazzola, Cristante, Matic, Pellegrini — Zalewski, Abraham, Dybala

Juventus vs. Roma betting odds
With both sides unbeaten after the opening two games, this is expected to be an even battle between two potential title challengers.
Mourinho’s Roma have a slight edge in terms of form, but Juventus’ return to home soil will benefit them, and a score draw looks to be a solid call for this one.
