The most attractive of the Match Day 36 fixtures in Serie A - at least on paper - comes at the Stadio Olimpico, as sixth placed Roma welcome this season's runaway Champion's Juventus.


Plenty to play for for the home side in this one. Four points adrift of Inter in the race for the Champions League, and with only three games left to play, they surely must win out if they are to hold any chance of dining at Europe's top table next season. Only one point ahead of seventh placed Lazio though, it is by no means impossible that they will miss out on European football entirely.

Juventus in contrast really have very little to play for with the league title already in the trophy cabinet. With just one win in their last four in the league, they do seem to have taken their foot off the gas slightly.


Juventus picked up the points courtesy of a narrow 1-0 success in the reverse of this fixture. The game here last season ended in a goalless draw.


Roma have lost only two of seventeen at home - winning ten - and scoring two or more in 13 of those games.


Juventus likewise have lost only two of 17 on the road, but those defeats have come in their last four games, at SPAL and Genoa.


Motivation would appear to be the key factor here and we fancy a fired-up Roma outfit to do enough.


Prediction: Roma 2 - 1 Juventus
