Juventus will be back in action after their miserable performance against Barcelona. Juventus are already feeling the void left by Bonucci, who left for AC Milan and Chiellini was also injured against the likes of Messi and Co. new signing Benedikt Howedes is yet to be in action. But being said that Juve are still reigning supreme in Serie A
and they will be looking to make it 4 wins out of 4 matches against a depleted Sassuolo.
Sassuolo on the other hand did manage to beat Juventus on the same ground back in 2015 but they arent the same side this season. They have managed only a point from their last 3 Serie A games and had lost to Genoa on home turf.Their biggest loss was when they lost tactician Eusebio Di Francesco who left Sassuolo to join Roma.
Allegri’s men will definitely hold an advantage over their opponents as their record against bottom half sides last season was pretty solid and will look be the same this season as well. Whereas for Sassuolo they have a slight glimmer of hope as they are no strangers in producing a surprise, but against Juve it will be a stern test.
