Our football match prediction:
Juventus are on the right track to win their sixth consecutive Serie A trophy. The club chiefs reinforced the squad in the summer transfer window and it is no surprise the Bianconeri are leading the chase for the domestic trophy ahead of Matchday 24. Juve aim to get their job done in the national championship as soon as possible as they have big ambitions for the Champions League knockout stages as well. Anyhow, Max Allegri is likely to field the best possible side against Cagliari and we predict that the reigning champions will emerge triumphant in Sunday’s football match. The Rossoblu suffered a 2-0 loss to Atalanta at the weekend and seeing that they have been struggling in front of goal of late, Massimo Rastelli’s charges are unlikely to shock the league leaders at their Stadio Sant’Elia. It has to be noted that Cagliari recorded their last win over Juve back in 2009.

Highlighted Team (Juventus):
Juventus are considered one of the greatest European football clubs. The Bianconeri (The White and Blacks) have won two Champions League trophies (1985, 1996) and they did well to clinch three UEFA Cup titles (1977, 1990, 1993). The Italian giants have won 32 Serie A trophies and it is well known that a number of star players were part of Juve in the past. The likes of Alessandro Del Piero, Zinedine Zidane, Michel Platini, Lilian Thuram, Filippo Inzaghi, Pavel Nedved and David Trezeguet all played for Juventus, whilst legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has yet to retire. Juve were stripped two domestic trophies during the “Calciopoli” scandal, but despite being relegated to Serie B, the club quickly brought glory days back to Turin. The Bianconeri used to play their home games at Stadio delle Alpi, but nowadays they welcome their rivals at Juventus Stadium. The capacity of the stadium is 41,475. La Vechhia Signora (The Old Lady) is yet another nickname of the club. Juve’s biggest rivals are Torino and the two local rivals take on each other in the Turin derby.
