Juventus vs Sassuolo: In one of this Sunday afternoon’s matches in Italy, counting towards the Serie A’s 23rd round.
The local side Juventus and the visiting side Sassuolo face off in Turin, at the Allianz Stadium on a match between two teams that will meet for the 2nd occasion this season.
With their first encounter on the 1st round of the competition finishing with a 3-1 win for Juventus in Sassuolo. The home side is in 14th place of the league table, with 22 points conquered, while the visiting side is in 2nd place with 56 points conquered.
The home side is making a different campaign from last seasons and namely since they managed to achieve promotion to the Serie A, some seasons ago, with the team eventually resenting from the departure of the manager Eusébio Di Francesco to Roma, having had a much less linear path in the league this season.
The team has one of the worst offensive records of the competition (only Benevento is worse) and they are coming off a streak of 4 matches where they weren’t able to win, with 2 losses and 2 draws in that period.
As for the Italian champions, they are making a relatively tranquil campaign so far, although they haven’t been able to present the same dominance.
So far, that they had presented in previous seasons, much due to a Napoli in great form (although, I believe that Juventus will end up winning the title again, since Napoli don’t have enough depth on their roster to withstand another 3 months of this marathon).
The team is coming off its best streak of results of the season, winning all of their last 9 matches and only conceding 1 goal in that period.
Juventus vs Sassuolo – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Upon a Sassuolo far from presenting the same dynamic they showed in previous years and with a Juventus in great form.
I can only see the home side winning with some comfort and also without conceding a single goal, given their recent defensive record and the visitors’ poor offensive record.
Still, and due to the absences of Cuadrado and especially Dybala, I believe that the team will resent itself offensively and, this way, we will have a warmer match offensively and in terms of goals.
