The third round match will be played between Juventus themselves and the visitors Roma on 27/8.
In addition, Lazio also hosted Inter, while the top team Napoli played away at Fiorentina.
Football-italia criticized Juventus for being helpless and harmless, when they were held to a 0-0 draw by hosts Sampdoria in the second round of Serie A on the evening of August 22.
In an article titled “The Old Lady Has No Teeth” on Football-italia, journalist Susy Campanale said that Juventus were “completely harmless” in the match at Luigi Ferraris.
With more luck with two situations that put the ball over the crossbar, Sampdoria could have won the three points.
Juventus won their first match 3–0 against Sassuolo, but they were still without Federico Chiesa, Angel Di Maria, Paul Pogba or Wojciech Szczesny on their trip to Genoa.
The match parameters are quite balanced, as the two teams finish and hold the ball equally.
But Juventus’ play was said to be lacking in creativity.
Sampdoria almost opened the scoring in the seventh minute when Mehdi Leris finished and goalkeeper Mattia Perin had to push the ball over the crossbar.
The 30-year-old goalkeeper sighed as the ball landed in his rightful place.
The defense was loose, and the Juventus attack did not create many highlights.
Statistics firm Whoscored gave striker Dusan Vlahovic a score of 5.9, the lowest on the visitors’ side.
