Against All Odds: Verona to take advantage of The Old Lady

Buffon and his teammates will have one eye on next week

The action comes from Italy for Paul Robinson this evening as he thinks that Juventus have to be opposed at odds-on for their trip to Verona.

"The hosts managed to draw this fixture last year and I think they can repeat that success this time around."

It hasn't been too bad a campaign for Hellas Verona as while they aren't going to be able to match their 10th place finish from last season, they are still going to be safely secured in mid-table.

Juventus on the other hand have enjoyed a wonderful campaign and after already wrapping up the Serie A title and the Coppa Italia, they go into next weekend's Champions League Final on the brink of completing a historic treble.

That however is why I believe they are worth opposing today. It's quite hard to knock holes in their away form in the league - although it is worth noting that they've actually won just three of their eight away from Turin - but this game means nothing to The Old Lady in comparison to the Champions League Final.

Andrea Mandorlini will no doubt be telling his players that in his team talk and The Yellow-Blues will also want to send their fans home happy with a positive end of season result.

The hosts managed to draw this fixture last year and I think they can repeat that success this time around. That's why, with Juventus trading at around the 1.758/11 mark, I have to make them my lay of the day.
