FC Juventes was supposed to be atop the Italian Serie A table this year. Seven matches in, that isn’t quite the case yet, but they can become table toppers if they can take three points over Fiorentina on Tuesday after at 2:45 p.m. (ET) at Juventes Stadium.

It has to be frustrating right now to be dressed in white and black. Alessandro Matri already has three goals on the campaign, as does Claudio Marchisio, and the talent is there for this team to really run away with the 2011-12 Scudetto. However, the team has had four draws already in seven fixtures, and though it hasn’t been beaten, it also hasn’t been able to fully take advantage of the slow start to the season that AC Milan and Inter Milan have both had.

These four draws have come in the last five matches, and the only win of the bunch ironically came against AC Milan right here at Juventes Stadium.

There could be some tough times ahead for the next week or two for FC Juventes as well. Gianluigi Buffon, whom many call the best goalkeeper in the entire world, suffered a shoulder injury in training and was held out of the lineup in the 2-2 draw against Lazio last week. His replacement, Marco Storari looked shaky to say the least with his two goals allowed against Genoa, and he hopes to be able to fix those problems against Fiorentina this week.

Stuck in the middle of the table, Fiorentina is going to be one of these teams that probably doesn’t have a heck of a lot to play for down the stretch of the season. We don’t see this team really scratching into the Top 5 this year, especially with the solid starts by Udinese and Lazio, but we also don’t see relegation being in the plans either.

The team hasn’t been in great form of late, failing to win four straight fixtures after reaming Parma 3-0 at the Stadio Artemio Franchi on September 21st. The 2-2 draw at home against Catania was a disappointing one to say the least for the hosts, especially after Stevan Jovetic was able to give the Viola a lead twice in the match.

Of the eight goals that Fiorentina has this year in Serie A competition, four have been scored by ovetic. Alessio Cerci has three straight, while Alberto Gilardino has a goal to his name as well.

Even though Juve has struggled and doesn’t have its net minder, it is expected to take all three points from this match. The hosts are half ball favorites at -150, and our soccer punters are expecting to see that price pay off.

Last year, these two teams played to two relatively lifeless draws, a scoreless result when the Viola were hosting, and a 1-1 draw here at Juventes.
