Match Details

Sassuolo vs Juventus – Serie A

10th February, 22:30 IST

Mapei Stadium, Reggio Emilia

 

Form:

Sassuolo: L L D W D

Juventus: W W W W D

 

Preview:

Eleventh-place Sassuolo will welcome Italian champions Juventus to the Mapei Stadium in Serie A on Sunday night. 

Last weekend, Sassuolo managed to come away with a point from their trip to Genoa thanks to a first-half strike from Filip Duricic. A similar result against Juventus tonight would severely boost the confidence of the entire football club. 

Juventus, on the other hand, blew a two-goal lead against Parma last weekend and only managed to secure a 3-3 draw at the Juventus Stadium. Two late goals from Gervinho denied Juventus a 5th consecutive win in all competitions. 

The Turin-based club will be looking to get back to winning ways against Sassuolo on Sunday. 

 

Predicted Lineups:

Sassuolo: Consigli; Lirola, Magnani, Peluso, Rogerio; Bourabia, Sensi, Locatelli; Berardi, Babacar, Djuricic.

Juventus: Szczesny; Cancelo, Rugani, Barzagli, Alex Sandro; Khedira, Pjanic, Matuidi; Dybala, Mandzukic, Cristiano Ronaldo.

 

Combined XI for the game:

 

 

Captain & Vice-Captain Options:

  1. Ronaldo
  2. Mandzukic
  3. Dybala
  4. Berardi
  5. Babacar
  6. Pjanic

 

Must Avoid:

  1. Magnanelli
  2. Duncan
  3. Cuadrado
  4. Bonucci
  5. Chiellini

 

Strategic Pointers:

  • Juventus have several central defenders missing for this match. Bonucci and Chiellini are definitely out while Barzagli is a major doubt. 
  • Only 5 Serie A clubs have scored more goals than Sassuolo (34 goals) this season. A clean sheet for Juventus with Bonucci and Chiellini missing may be difficult.
  • Ronaldo, Mandzukic and Dybala have formed a fearsome attacking trio for Juventus this season and are excellent options for your side.
  • Khouma Babacar is Sassuolo’s top scorer this season with 6 goals and 1 assist in Serie A.
