The match will be shown live on the UEFA Champions League TV channel, and the match will also be shown in other countries.
This is the final game of the year for the Serie A side, with their last away game coming in the 2014/15 season.
The winner of the game will be guaranteed their place in next season’s Champions League, while the other team will have to wait until 2019/20 to play a home fixture.
In all, it will be a fantastic event for fans, with Juventus hoping that a big win will bring back the fans’ enthusiasm.
The Bianconeria won 4-1 on aggregate to take the lead after the opening 45 minutes, and a penalty shootout saw the Giallors claim the lead in the 53rd minute, when Bruno Alves struck a low cross for Giorgio Chiellini to head home.
Roma were in control from the outset, with Antonio Candreva firing a shot past keeper Mauro Icardi, before Alessandro Del Piero doubled the advantage with a shot after the break.
The goal came after the restart, when Candrevas fed Chiella, who then headed home the rebound from a Candrevan cross.
In the 54th minute, a fierce collision saw Del Pieros go down after being bundled over the line by Alessandro Florenzi, with a tussle over a free kick then taking place in a penalty area, and Del Piera was the first to get up, but referee Andrea Caceres waved away the penalty.
The goalscorer then found the back of the net for his second goal of the day in the 62nd minute.
With time running out, Juventus scored again with a goal from Chiello, with Alessandro Conte sending in a powerful cross from the right.
In the 84th minute of the second half, Alessandro Pisanu headed in a Pjanic cross to put Roma ahead.
A second goal from Alves, who has been a mainstay of the Gialls side, in the 81st minute was enough for Juventus to move into the final.
The final was the best performance of the Juventus squad, with all four of the Serie B leaders scoring goals.
It is also the third straight Champions League match between Juventus and Roma, having played each other just once since 2007/08, but both teams have been equally impressive.
In 2015/16, Juventus went into the match with a four-point lead at the top of the table, while Roma have just one point from their past three matches.
