Juventus will look to head into the festive weekend on a positive note as they look to secure a second straight Serie A win when they host lowly Cagliari in their final fixture of 2021 on Tuesday in Turin. It has been a difficult year for the hosts, who lost their Scudetto crown and their best player in Cristiano Ronaldo. Furthermore, the Italian giants are yet to hit top form, but off late have managed to register positive results in Serie A. They have won four of their last five games in all competitions but are still 12 points behind league leaders Inter Milan.
On the other hand, the visitors are enduring a difficult season, as they have won just one Serie A game all season. This sees them sit in the 19th spot, three points off safety. Last week’s Coppa Italia win over Serie B side Cittadella brought some brief respite, but it was short-lived as they were beaten 0-4 by Udinese last time out.
Although Juventus have faltered against some of Serie A’s low ranked teams in the course of last year, this match not only offers a win but can also see them end their 2021 campaign on a high.
