Hellas Verona will be aiming to get off the foot of the table before the World Cup break when they meet with an improved Juventus side before the World Cup break at the end of this week as the Turin outfit now sit fifth in the table.
As was the case for much of last season, the terrible start to the campaign has now been eased by Juventus with them now moving onto seven wins for the season and only two fewer than AC Milan in second, while also sitting just five points behind the champions with this game in hand to be played. This could now see Max Allegri guide his side into the top four before the World Cup break, should they win both games and other results go their way.
Despite losing to Paris Saint-Germain again last week, the Old Lady returned to the win column in Serie A with a fantastic victory in the Derby d’Italia, as Adrien Rabiot and Nicolo Fagioli scored a goal each in a win over Inter Milan.
Verona, despite having one win compared to Cremonese’s zero wins, sit bottom of the table, two points behind the 18th-placed side and with very little hope of getting out of the drop zone before the break. In fact, they’d need at least four points over the next two games and have to overturn an almighty goals difference record just to have a chance at doing so.
