It’s the final game in a six-match Serie A season that has seen Juventus’ hopes of qualifying for the Champions League fall to pieces.
The Bianconeri are just one win away from their first ever league defeat in their new stadium, having lost to Milan 1-0 on Sunday.
And despite Juventus holding the final place in Serie A, they remain bottom of the table with just two wins from 11 matches.
“It’s not over yet,” said former Bianconero coach Marco Verratti, who retired after the season.
“We can not afford to be a part of a relegation fight.”
I can see a lot of things going wrong, and we can’t accept that.
We have to play, to play to be competitive.
“That’s what matters most.”
Juventus’ last win over the reigning champions was in the first leg of the Champions Leagues final last October, when they beat Napoli 2-1.
But it’s been a difficult run for the Giallorossi.
The club were relegated last term after finishing in sixth, but the team that reached the last eight of the Europa League, winning the trophy in their final campaign in Turin, had to play in the Champions Cup final against Ajax.
And while the Giallsos have now gone two games without a win, Verrati has repeatedly said that they’re not going anywhere and that he believes the squad will still be in a strong position.
“You can’t win a championship with this squad,” he said.
“This is not the last season.

It’s a good squad and we’re all in it together, which we should be.”
