Juventus dropped out of top four in the Serie A standings after a disastrous 0-3 loss to Milan on Sunday. Can they bounce back in a super-important mid-week clash at Sassuolo three days later?
Juventus entered this season chasing their tenth straight Seri A title. However, not only have they been nowhere near the Scudetto battle, but they will hardly even make it to a top-four finish by the end of the campaign.
Juventus are currently fifth in the league ladder. With three games left to play, their destiny is not completely in their hands anymore.
To make things worse, Andrea Pirlo’s men have a tricky schedule with the fixtures against Sassuolo and Inter in the next two Serie A rounds followed by the Coppa Italia final against Atalanta.
I BIanconeri were just powerless on Sunday evening against Milan and it is very hard to see them as favorites here against Sassuolo.
Juventus won only two of the last seven matches on the road in all competitions. They will go up against one of the most in-form sides in the division as Sassuolo won five and drew one of the last six Serie A affairs.
Given that Sassuolo have played the likes of Fiorentina, Milan, and Atalanta along the way, we have to take them seriously ahead of this match-up.
Sassuolo vs Juventus Head-to-head
- The one thing Juventus can rely on going into this tie is the head to head record. I Bianconeri have completely dominated this match-up, winning 11, drawing 3, and losing just 1 of 15 clashes against Sassuolo.
- Three of more goals were seen in each of the last seven head to head games between the two outfits.
- Juventus scored at least two goals in each of these seven games, including this season’s 3-1 victory at Allianz Stadium in Turin.
Sassuolo vs Juventus Prediction
Based on the recent form, it is really hard to see any value in the 1.57 odds offered for Juventus’ win here. Yes, the former champions desperately need a victory here, but they needed one on Sunday against Milan, too.
Since we see Sassuolo as the form favorites here, we will try and catch a big longshot backing them to win at the sky-high 5.00 odds. The more conservative punters can try with the double chance bet at the 2.25 odds
