The race for first place in Serie A is on with the derby between the two clubs set to be played on Saturday, December 6.
The two Italian giants will clash at Stadio Olimpico, home of the Juventus and Roma respectively, with the winner having the upper hand in a race for the Scudetto, which is now held by Juventus.
Juventus will go for the third-straight Scudetti, with their win over Fiorentino proving to be a landmark victory in the derby.
They had won seven of their previous 10 games against Roma, winning just once in eight meetings.
Roma have won all five of their Serie A matches, with an all-time record of 28-10-7, with a 6-0-1 record against the Nerazzurri, who have not lost in Rome since December 2014.
Juve’s victory over Fiorenza, a team they beat 4-0 in the second leg of the Italian Super Cup in November, means that they will be looking to add a trophy to their impressive trophy cabinet.
They have been looking for their first Scudetta since a 4-1 victory in Florence in April, as they were not able to replicate their win against Juventus on Sunday, and they will want to build on that performance in order to get back on track.
This will be the first time in their history that they have played at Stads’ Stadium, with this being the first match in the new season.
The match is expected to be the most anticipated of the two, as the game will be broadcast live on the Italian national television network and streamed on Twitter.
It is expected that there will be a small contingent of supporters in the stands, and that there may be an enforced ban on wearing red.
The game will start at 8:00pm local time, with live coverage of the match on the following platforms: Fiorettina’s official website, as well as www.tricot.it/football, and www.television.g.it, and all other live coverage will be on the official Twitter account of the Serie A club.
The derby will be shown live on Sky Sport Italia and Eurosport.
