Roma have won just one of their last seven league games against Juventus, losing four. The Bianconeri are the team who have inflicted the most top-flight defeats on the Giallorossi (75) and scored the greatest number of goals against them in Serie A (251).
A 1-1 draw is the most common outcome when both sides meet, occurring on 24 separate occasions, the last of which came on 12 December 2011 (De Rossi and Chiellini on the scoresheet).
Roma have twice shipped seven against Juventus in the top flight: 7-1 in 1932 (the Giallorossi’s heaviest Serie A reverse to date) and 7-2 in 1950.
PREVIOUS MEETINGS IN ROME
Roma have emerged victorious from the last two encounters against Juve at the Stadio Olimpico by a solitary goal to nil (league and Coppa Italia). Before the win in February 2013, the Giallorossi had taken just two points from the previous seven home meetings, conceding an average of 2.6 goals a game.
The Giallorossi’s 4-1 away defeat in Catania mathematically guaranteed the Bianconeri’s 32nd Scudetto victory, their third in a row for the first time since 1935. The last time Roma had shipped as many goals was against Cagliari in February 2013.
Rudi Garcia's side are unbeaten at home this season (W15, D3), although they have conceded in four of their last five games at the Olimpico. Juventus have won 31 matches this campaign, a record in a single Serie A season. With a draw, they would equal the best points tally, recorded by Inter in 2006/07 (97).
The Bianconeri have conceded just one goal in their last five league games. Conte’s men have found the target in 24 of the last 25 away trips, with March’s defeat to Napoli the only exception.
Andrea Pirlo has scored three goals against Roma in his career, two of which coming in the black and white stripes. He provided the assist for Leonardo Bonucci to put Juventus two goals to the good in this season’s first meeting in Turin.
Juventus are the team with the greatest number of players in double figures (Tevez, Llorente, Vidal). The Chilean international has already netted four goals in five previous appearances against Roma in Serie A, but all have come at Juventus Stadium so far.
Giorgio Chiellini made his Serie A debut for Fiorentina against Roma at the Stadio Olimpico in September 2004. He has also found the target against the Giallorossi, converting in the 1-1 draw contested in December 2011.
Stephan Lichtsteiner netted his first Serie A strike against Roma, scoring for Lazio during the Rome derby in April 2009. The Swiss defender has weighed in with seven assists this season, six of which have been converted by Fernando Llorente.
Against Atalanta, Antonio Conte celebrated his 100th victory as Bianconeri manager in all competitions. Conte was the first coach to beat Rudi Garcia in Italy, on 5 January at Juventus Stadium. His overall managerial record against Roma reads as follows: three wins, one draw and two defeats.
