Roma go to Turin tonight looking for their first win away to Juventus since January 2010.

The Giallorossi can go level on points with the champions if they win tonight, but they haven’t beaten the Old Lady away from home in close to eight years.

On January 23, 2010; a Francesco Totti penalty cancelled out Alessandro Del Piero’s opener, and John Arne Riise grabbed a 93rd-minute winner after Gianluigi Buffon had been sent off.

There have been seven Serie A meetings in Piedmont since then, with six wins for the Bianconeri and just one draw.

Indeed, the overall record between the sides is heavily weighted in favour of Juve.

In 85 Serie A matches in Turin, Juventus have won 56, drawn 21 and lost just eight; scoring 167 goals in that time and conceding only 60.

The widest margin of victory in these matches was a 7-1 win for Juve in the 1931-32 season, with the Lupi winning by two goals on three occasions.

However, Roma did win the last match between these two sides, taking a 3-1 victory at the Stadio Olimpico toward the end of last season.

Tonight’s game sees the league’s best attack meet its strongest defence, with Juventus having scored 44 goals in 17 games, while Roma have conceded only 10 in 16.
