Midweek football is back in Serie A and given how unpredictable and chaotic the season has been thus far, we’re expecting some fireworks. There are many, many teams battling it out at both ends of the table but one of the biggest tales of the campaign thus far focuses on Juventus. The Italian giants have struggled in the first handful of games and if they’re unable to overcome Sassuolo, many will wonder where they go from here.

Juventus

A few departures have ensured that Juventus’ questionable form from last season has festered into this one – and at precisely the wrong time, too. Serie A has a collection of clubs who are having their best start to a campaign in years and while Juve still have some superstars to their name, they aren’t exactly blowing anyone out of the water. They’re slowly getting back on track but fixtures like this provide some real banana skin potential.

Team News

Kean and Bernardeschi are both out through injury with Dybala and de Ligt being tipped to start.

Sassuolo

The one thing that can be said for Sassuolo is that they always know how to bring us some entertainment. With a goal difference of zero after nine fixtures they are the literal definition of inconsistent and even though that may not get them too far in terms of success, it’s still going to offer up some chaos for a lot of teams at the top and bottom of the table. The risk, of course, is that they could slip into a relegation battle if things start to snowball.

Team News

Traore will feature in the absence of Djuricic with Obiang and Boga joining him on the injury list.

Factors to Consider

  • Juventus are 6th in Serie A whereas Sassuolo are 13th.
  • Juventus have won five and drawn one of their last six games.
  • Sassuolo have won two, drawn one and lost three of their last six games.
  • Juventus have scored seven goals and conceded two in their last six games.
  • Sassuolo have scored eight goals and conceded eight in their last six games.

Conclusion

Juventus have gotten into a habit of grinding out results with a professional if unremarkable, performance in recent weeks – and that’s what we expect to happen when they meet Sassuolo. The visitors often tend to put up a nice fight against the very elite but fall short of the mark when it matters and with the Old Lady having a home crowd behind them, it feels inevitable that we’re going to get another nervy 1-0 win out of them.
