Both clubs have played each other a large number of times, expectedly Juventus has the most wins. Since 2006, the two clubs played eighteen times, Juventus winning thirteen matches, leaving room for just two wins for Verona and the last one ending in a draw. Albeit having their last victory against I Bianconeri in 2016, Hellas Verona always finds a way to hit the net in most of their outings, scoring in five games from the last six encounters and ultimately leading up to an average of two goals per match.
