Italy – Serie A
Date: Monday, 15 August 2022
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Allianz Stadium.
Juventus might not have won the title in the last 2 years but there is no denying that they have been one of the very best in Italy for the past several years. This Monday in front of their home crowd they will be expected to deliver a winning performance against Sassuolo.
Sassuolo are a perennial contender for a mid-table finish, and staying true to their character they had secured a 12th place finish the last time around. They had remained winless in 25 of their total 38 games all through the campaign, and all along they had let in goals in huge numbers.
And it deserves to be mentioned that they have been struggling too show at least some kind of consistency away from home in the past few months.
Meanwhile, the Old Lady showed conviction and composure in securing the coveted 4th place finish, which enabled them to take part in the upcoming edition of the Champions League.
They have been in good form lately and are also consistently finding the back of the net. And as always they have a dominant defence as well.
At the same time, they have been on a good run in front of their home crowd and most importantly they have a positive head-to-head record against this rival over the past several seasons. By the looks of things, it is expected that we are about to witness a victory for Juventus this Monday.
