Cremonese - Juventus prediction
We're only halfway through the season.
However, Cremonese now need a real miracle to bolster their hopes of avoiding a swift return to Serie B.
It is almost impossible to expect this road to salvation to begin against a resurgent Juventus side.
Especially considering the incomparable defense of the guests .
Which is the only one in Calcio this season that has allowed a single-digit number of goals - only 7 hits in 15 matches so far.
In fact, this is the 6th home game in a row for the team from Cremona, in which they meet a difficult opponent.
Before Juve, Lazio, Napoli, Sampdoria, Udinese and Milan visited here successively. And each of them walked away with points.
At the same time, Juventus is on a unique streak - 6 consecutive championship games, which were won "nil".
Including against tough opponents like city rivals Torino, Inter and Lazio.
This gives me reason to predict that the Bianconeri will take a clear victory in this match as well.
Cremonese - statistics and info
La Cremo regained their elite status after a two-decade absence.
But they are now one of the hottest candidates for relegation to Serie B after a very poor start to the Calcio season.
Massimiliano Alvini's side are the only team in Serie A yet to record a single win in 2022/23.
Recording 7 draws and 8 losses so far. Including a terrible 0-2 defeat by Empoli before the start of the World Cup.
Considering their poor start after 15 league games, it is perhaps a little surprising that they are just 6 points from safety .
But their hopes of survival are bleak.
Although this seems a tall order, Cremonese's players have shown signs of improvement recently.
Keeping clean sheets in their last two Serie A home games.
Including a goalless draw against champions AC Milan in their last meeting at the Giovanni Dzini.
Juventus - statistics and info
Juventus return to Serie A after an eight-week break, trying to stay on the upward trajectory .
In stark contrast to Cremonese's massive problems, Juve have put their own early-season crisis firmly behind them.
Keeping up a good pace before the mid-campaign break.
The World Cup break probably came at the wrong time for Massimiliano Allegri's men.
As Juventus built up serious momentum with six league wins without conceding a goal .
However, the Bianconeri failed to get out of the Champions League group stage for the first time since 2013/14.
However, the record-setting Italian champions can still find some positives this season.
Unlike the ill-fated 2021/22 campaign.
The Old Lady then had to survive some late drama to secure Champions League football.
But they are now just two points behind second- placed Milan.
