Sassuolo is welcoming Juventus to Mapei Stadium in round 33 in Italian Serie A.
Sassuolo is in a fantastic form, and they are on a 4-game winning streak. Since the restart, Sassuolo has lost only their first game against Atalanta, but since then, Sassuolo is undefeated. During their last 4 games, Sassuolo has scored 11 goals, while conceding 5 goals. With this fantastic streak, Sassuolo has climbed the standings with 8th place with 46 points, 59 scored goals, and 54 conceded goals. Caputo has scored 16 goals for Sassuolo, while Berardi added 12 goals, and Boga has 11 goals. Djuricic, Berardi, and Caputo all have 5 assists. Romagna, Obiang, and Defreal are all injured and will not be in the lineup. In Sassuolo’s last Serie A game against Lazio on the road, they were absolutely fantastic with massive 64% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, and solid 87% of the correct passes. After losing at the half time, Sassuolo has turned the game around in the second half and has won this match 1-2. There are enough games left in Serie A for Sassuolo to reach the Europa League spot but are they going to is a different question. The competition for those two spots is huge, and I don’t see Sassuolo being one of those two teams to get into the Europa League.
Juventus hasn’t won any of their last 2 games in Serie A, but they still have 8 point advantage against Inter and Lazio who were also terrible in their last few games, while Atalanta is catching up, and could be the only threat to Juventus’ ambitions of defending the title. Juventus has scored high 67 goals this season and seeing how well Ronaldo has been playing as of late, that number will only grow. Ronaldo has 28 goals to his name this season, while Dybala added 11 goals. Bentancur and Dybala both added 6 assists for Juventus this season. Demiral, Khedira, and De Sciglio are all still injured. Juventus’ defense is the best in Serie A with 32 conceded goals, but they have been sloppy as of late, and if something will cost Juventus in the future, it will be their defense. In their latest Serie A game against Atalanta at home, Juventus has had 49% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, and 87% of the correct passes. Juventus was losing twice in this match, but they had a lot of luck in this game and Ronaldo has scored 2 goals from two penalty kicks. This match ended in 2-2 draw. However this season will end for Juventus, they need to remain focused because they are playing in the Champions League in August, and with the new schedule out, Juventus has a good chance of finally winning that competition.
Sassuolo is scoring the insane amount of goals as of late, while Juventus is sloppy on the defensive end, but they can keep up in the attacking part. It’s not like all of a sudden Sassuolo is the favorite here, but they are in a great form and I can’t write them off.
