Our football match prediction:
Juventus will be looking to keep their 100% record in the 2017/2018 Serie A campaign intact when they square off against Fiorentina at their Allianz Stadium. The Bianconeri recorded a routine 3-1 win over Sassuolo at the weekend and it has to be noted that the title holders scored 3+ goals in each of their four league fixtures. Paulo Dybala has been scoring goals for fun at the start of the season and all eyes will be on the Argentina international when Juve face Fiorentina in Turin. It has to be noted that the former Palermo attacker has already netted eight goals in the Italian top flight so far this term. The Viola, on the other hand, head into Wednesday’s football match following back-to-back wins over the likes of Hellas Verona and Bologna, but beating Juve on the road is easier said than done. The club chiefs made a number of changes to the squad in the summer transfer window and we do not believe that Stefano Pioli’s troops are capable of matching the reigning champions at Allianz Stadium.
Highlighted Player (Higuain):
Widely regarded as one of the most talented strikers of his generation, Argentina’s Gonzalo Higuain started his career with River Plate. A transfer to Real Madrid for €12 million in 2007 catapulted him to the top league. His six years at Madrid was capped with three La Liga titles and 107 goals in 190 appearances. Higuain became a crowd favorite at the Santiago Bernabeu and there was wide spread resentment among supporters over his transfer to Italian club Napoli in 2013 for a reported €40 million. Although he wasn’t able to win the Serie A, he carried the hopes of Napoli in 2015-16 and equaled 87-year-old record of 36 goals in a top-flight season. Higuain or El Pipita as he is fondly called has also been a regular with his country having represented Argentina at two FIFA World Cups and as many Copa America tournaments. Higuain has a great eye for the goal and his goal scoring record bears a testament to this.
