      Monday’s visitors to Juventus Stadium have endured a difficult season away from Tuscany, returning empty handed from 11 of their 15 Serie A encounters contested

      Since gaining promotion last season via the Serie B playoffs, Livorno have struggled on the road in the top flight, losing 11 of their 15 games contested away from the Stadio Armando Picchi.

      A run that began with a bang, a resounding 4-1 away victory over Sassuolo in their second Serie A fixture of the season, then took a dramatic downhill spiral as Domenico Di Carlo’s men had to wait until February for their second triumph on their travels, a 2-1 success over Cagliari.

      This, coupled with a 20-match streak without a clean sheet and an average of 2.1 goals conceded during this run, means the odds are firmly stacked against the Amaranto recording their first Serie A win against Juventus since 1942 on Monday night.

      However, the visitors will take heart from their most recent outing – a 2-2 draw against Inter – in which they overturned a two-goal first half opposition lead to seal a share of the spoils in the dying embers through Innocent Emeghara’s leveller.

      The result enabled the Tuscan outfit to boost their survival chances, taking them to within a point of 17th place, currently occupied by Bologna.
