Juventus Looking to Maintain Lead in Serie A

Juventus will be aiming to pick up their second league win in 2013 this Saturday, January 26 when they play host to bottom side Genoa in Turin.

Injury problems might still be an issue for the Turin giant, but with their squad depth that problem could be easily handled especially since they’re not actually playing against one of the top sides.

Meanwhile, Genoa themselves are in dire need of points as they’re currently struggling in 18th place on the Serie A table and are in a two consecutive run of defeats. Davide Ballardini will be hoping that his players can start showing their full potential as they’ve been playing below their standards most of this season. The tactician might be hoping that striker, Marco Borriello can produce a stunning game  against his former side, simply to prove that the Turin giant was wrong in letting him go. Though the Bianconeri are looking in much better condition at the moment, this encounter could still provide a thrilling show that should be suitable for betting enthusiasts in placing their money.
