Sassuolo vs Juventus
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 10 February 2019
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: MAPEI Stadium – Citta del Tricolore (Reggio nell’Emilia).
Reigning champions will be looking to return on winning ways on Sunday evening when they travel to Reggio nell’Emilia to take on Sassuolo in the penultimate game of the day.
Massimiliano Allegri will be desperate to see improvements in his team’s back line here as Bianconeri shockingly conceded three goals in each of last two games against Atalanta and Parma.
The Old Lady were knocked out of Coppa Italia after a tough 3-0 defeat to Atalanta away in Bergamo. Such loss clearly left an impact on team’s spirits and atmosphere in the dressing room as Allegri’s men only drew 3-3 at home to Parma in the league tie last weekend at their Allianz Stadium.
Juventus are still untouchable at the very top of the Serie A standings. They have 19 wins and 3 draws in 22 games and are as many as nine points clear off the second-placed Napoli coming into this 3rd round fixture against Il Neroverdi.
Sassuolo vs Juventus: Head-to-head
Sassuolo have never been a tricky opposition for the Old Lady.
Juventus won nine, drew one and lost one of eleven meetings with Il Neroverdi.
Bianconeri head into this off the back of six subsequent victories over Sassuolo.
Sassuolo vs Juventus: Prediction
The hosts might fancy their chances of bringing such a dreadful H2H trend with Juve to an end here. They enter the game unbeaten in three consecutive league matches which saw them ship just one goal in the process.
Since Bianconeri are winless in past two games and since they shipped six goals along the way, we can hardly find the value in backing the away win at 1.57 odds here. Sassuolo lost just 2 of 11 home outings in this term of Serie A. You can back the hosts not to lose by two or more goals difference at 1.53 odds, while Sassuolo are paid at 2.40 not to lose.
