Bologna – Juventus
Juventus is ready to close its Serie A campaign with a visit to Bologna in the last 38th round of the league. After already winning and celebrating the title, The Old Lady will play this last game of the season with only one thought in mind – the big clash with Real Madrid for the Champions League trophy in Cardiff.
Because of that, it’s logical to expect that Juve’s manager Massimiliano Allegri will make a lot of changes in his starting line-up. We could expect that some of Juve’s key players will get a rest and they are going to be preserved for the final. Because of that, some of Juventus’ young and reserve players will have the chance to participate in this last match in the Serie A campaign.
Once again, Juventus dominated Serie A. Although Roma and Napoly were worthy contenders, The Old Lady once again proved that they are the best team in Italy in the last few years. And reaching the Champions League final for a second time in the last three seasons also proves that now they are an European force as well.
As for Bologna, the Rossoblu once again completed their main goal – survival. Bologna are currently 15th in the Serie A standings, but they have a chance to move one or two places above, if they manage to beat Juventus. Depending on some other results for the day, of course.
The home is going to be without the services of the injured Domenico Maietta, Federico Di Francesco and Fabrizio Brignani. Most probably the Rossoblu are going to be without Blerim Dzemaili and Juan Manuel Valencia as well.
Juventus’ Max Allegri can’t use the suspended Daniel Alves, while Daniele Rugani and Marko Pjaca are still recovering from their last injuries. It’s going to be curious to see how exactly Allegri is going to build his starting line-up for this match.
