On October 17, the match of the 8th round of the Italian Serie A will take place, in which Juventus Turin will play Roma at home. The forecast for this match is given by Maxim Kalinichenko, a well-known midfielder of Spartak Moscow and the Ukrainian national team in the past.

Juventus, to put it mildly, did not start this season in the best way. It is unlikely that fans expected something like this when Massimiliano Allegri returned to the team. Although a decline could be expected after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo from Turin. "Old Signora" currently occupies only the seventh place in Serie A.

Roma also had a new head coach last summer. Not everything is perfect so far in Rome for Jose Mourinho, but the team is still fourth, 6 points behind the leading Napoli. Last season, the Romans regularly looked good in the top matches, even when they were not seriously fighting for prizes. Now their fights should get even hotter.

But still Maxim Kalinichenko does not believe that Roma will succeed in Turin. Juventus has put itself in such a position that it no longer has the right to allow misfires, otherwise it can seriously put itself in danger of not even getting a ticket to the Champions League for next season. The expert suggests simply betting on a clean victory of the hosts here.
