Andre Pirlo’s men would play away from home to Benevento at Stadio Ciro Vigorito as Benevento and Juventus go head to head in the Serie A round 9. The Bianconeri aim to build on a routine 2-0 win over Cagliari where Cristiano Ronaldo scored a brace, and we are positive that the title holders will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football match as they are looking to close the gap between them and the league topper, AC Milan.

The Turin side put in an impressive display in their last encounter last week Saturday, winning 2goals to nil, thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo’s brilliant display. Afterwards, the Italian giant defeated their opponent Ferenvaros in the route to knockout stages qualification by 2goals to 1.

Pirlo’s men would see the two wins as an opportunity to rebuild their confidence and would be  looking all out for another big win this weekend.

Benevento at the other end would be expecting a tough test from the Andre Pirlo’s men, having won their last match. On Sunday, the newcomers did well to beat Fiorentina on the road in their last league match, but it is well known that the Viola are no longer considered the team to beat in the Serie A. Benevento face an uphill task against Juventus, who have been in a fine form in the Italian top flight of late.

The likes of Bonucci, Chiellini, and Demiral are still nursing their various injuries, meaning that Dutch defender De Ligt should keep his place in the starting XI. Aaron Ramsey is rated doubtful for the Benevento game.

Iago Falque, Dabo, Tuia, and Volta are sidelined with injury, while Foulon and Letizia are major doubts for the hosts.


With the look of things, irrespective of Andre Pirlo’s men nursing injuries, the Bianconeri remains the top choice.
