Juventus vs Sassuolo: Prediction

Juventus come into this game on the back of a narrow win over Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League. Prior to that, they came back from behind to beat an out-of-sorts Atalanta side 3-1 on the road.

With 11-2-0 record in the competition, the Bianconeri are still two points ahead of Inter, and they will be looking to keep them at bay by beating Sassuolo at Allianz Stadium on Sunday.

Maurizio Sarri’s side maintained 100-percent record at home by beating AC Milan before the international break. On average, they’re bagging 2.17 goals per bout in their own backyard, whilst shipping 1.17.

Injured Chiellini and Douglas Costa are surely out; Alex Sandro and Rabio are yet to be evaluated.

The Neroverdi slipped to 14th position on the Serie A ladder following a stoppage-time defeat to Lazio (1-2) at MAPEI Stadium. With four wins, one draw and seven defeats, they’re levelled on points with Bologna, but Roberto De Zerbi’s side still have a game in hand vs lowly Brescia, scheduled for next month.

Their form is rather decent with 7pts collected from last five league outings.

Sassuolo have picked up four points from five games their travels, scoring 1.20 goals per game and conceding 1.80 per match. They played out an entertaining 2-2 draw vs Lecce in their most recent away fixture.

Rogerio, Pegolo, Defrel and Domenico Berardi are on the sidelines for the guests; Chiriches is considered as doubtful.

This should by an easy one for the champs. Juventus have outstanding all-time record vs Neroverdi at Allianz Stadium and I’m confident they will win by more than one goal.

Sassuolo have the third-worst defensive record in the league with 23 goals conceded so far. I can’t see them stopping the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala.

The guests tend to concede a lot in the first half, while Juventus usually go mad after the break. Picking hosts to score in both halves makes sense here.
