Match preview and statistics
Juventus have picked up four points with a +3 goal difference from two matches this season. They have a win and a draw from the Round 1 and Round 2 games.
The Old Ladu beat Sassuolo 3-nil in the first league match. Angel Di Maria scored his first goal for Juve in his debut. The 34-year-old winger volleyed the ball down into the turf, and it looped over the goalie into the top corner. Alex Sandro sent in the cross that found the Argentine.
Dusan Vlahovic registered his first league goal from the penalty spot. He placed the ball into the middle, sending the goalie the other way. Vlahovic scored his brace in the 51st minute finding the back of the net at the back post, Di Maria having another impact with the through ball.
Juve played a goalless draw in their second league match against Sampdoria. It wasn’t expected because the Bianconeri had beaten Sampdoria in ten consecutive games. The team performance wasn’t very good, with zero big chances created and a lower xG (0.77) than their opponent’s (0.86).
Juventus team news: Angel Di Mara, Arthur Melo, Federico Chiesa, Paul Pogba and Wojciech Szczesny are unavailable due to injuries.
Roma are above Juventus in the league table with six points and a +2 goal difference. The Giallorossi have won the two league matches played.
They started the season with a 1-nil win over Salernitana. Bryan Cristante scored the game-winner in the match with a shot from outside the box to the bottom right corner. They did the same in the Round 2 match against Cremonese.
Chris Smalling was the goalscorer this time around. He scored the winning goal in the 65th minute of the second half with a header from the right side of the box to the middle of the net. Lorenzo Pellegrini assisted with the cross, following the corner.
Roma team news: Nicolo Zaniolo, Georginio Wijnaldum and Ebrima Darboe are sidelined due to injuries.

Lineups and key players

- Mattia Perin
- Daniele Rugani
- Gleison Bremer
- Mattia De Sciglio
- Weston McKennie
- Manuel Locatelli
- Adrien Rabiot
- Juan Cuadrado
- Dusan Vlahovic
- Filip Kostic
Dusan Vlahovic is the key player to watch out for. He already scored two league goals for Juve this season against Sassuolo. Vlahovic needs to lead the attack line and score goals in this match. Expect him to have top performance.
Roma projected starting lineup:
- Rui Patricio
- Gianluca Mancini
- Chris Smalling
- Roger Ibanez
- Rick Karsdorp
- Lorenzo Pellegrini
- Bryan Cristante
- Leonardo Spinazzola
- Paulo Dybala
- Stephan El Shaarawy
- Tammy Abraham
Tammy Abraham is the key player to watch out for. He had a good season for Roma last year with 17 goals in the league. Abraham is still searching for his first league goal and should be able to get it right in this game.
