Bologna vs Juventus Might 23, 2021 Match Preview and Stats
Under siege, coach Andrea Pirlo needs a win on the last day of the season to put Juventus in the top four and hopes other results will turn out in his favor.
Juventus have been dethroned this season after Inter ended their nine-year dominance in the Italian game.
Their breakdown was so extraordinary that it is very likely that they will not qualify for Champions League football.
Juve won the midweek Coppa Italia and beat Atalanta 2-1 in Reggio Emilia thanks to goals from Dejan Kulusevski and Federico Chiesa.
You’re currently in fifth place and need Milan or Napoli to get a top 4 place.
Wojciech Szczesny will start in goal and in front of him are Matthijs de Ligt, Danilo, Giorgio Chiellini and Alex Sandro.
In midfield, Pirlo is expected again with a four-man midfield consisting of Juan Cuadrado, Arthur, Chiesa and Adrien Rabiot.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who could play his last game for Juventus, will start alongside Paulo Dybala – who could also follow Ronaldo through the exit door of Turin.
Kulusevski and Alvaro Morata will both fall on the bench but could come if the situation against Sinisa Mihajlovic’s tenacious Bologna side proves difficult.
Gianluigi Buffon, who has already announced that he will be leaving the club for the second time in his career at the end of the season, is likely to run out of minutes on the final day after starting in the Coppa Italia final.
