With a 4-2 triumph already in the bag Sassuolo are looking to do the double over Juventus

Juventus have played 19 Serie A games so far and have just lost once. That defeat came against upcoming visitors Sassuolo at the Stadio Città del Tricolore. It was a 4-2 defeat. The Old Lady last played in the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia against Frosinone which they won comfortably 4-0.

After the 4-2 triumph over Massimiliano Allegri’s men on matchday 5 of the 2023-24 Italian first-tier league fixture, Sassuolo will be looking to do the double over Juventus. Last game against Fiorentina, Andrea Pinamonti was the only man on the scoresheet giving his side a 1-0 win. Pinamonti was also one of the scorers in the 4-2 victory over the Old Lady.

Players to Watch

Arkadiusz Milik (Juventus)

The former Napoli forward had a fruitful game last time out. Arkadiusz Milik scored a hattrick against Frosinone to help his side win 4-0 and make it to the Coppa Italia semi-finals. Allegri could once again choose the pair of Kenan Yıldız and Milik to do business in and around the opposition’s net.

Andrea Pinamonti (Sassuolo)

For the Neroverdi, last game against Fiorentina, Andrea Pinamonti was able to find the back of the net. His strike was a solo effort on target from his team as well. Pinamonti’s goal allowed Sassuolo to win the game 1-0. The striker will be eager to cross paths once again with Juventus after scoring against them on matchday 5.

Match Prediction for Juventus vs Sassuolo

Sassuolo gave the only blow of the Serie A season to Juventus so far. The Old Lady side will be wary of it and proceed with caution against a side that have won two games consecutively against them. Not expecting Alessio Dionisi’s men to do the double over Juventus. Maybe both sides will settle for a draw.

Prediction: Juventus 1-1 Sassuolo
