Juventus hosts Sassuolo in round 17 of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Sunday, January 10th at Allianz Stadium (Turin).
Pirlo's charges are in bad shape, because of which the fans of the grandee of Italian football see a defeat to Fiorentina (0:3) and a draw with Atalanta (1:1). Juventus occupies only fourth place in the standings, with an impressive 7-point lag behind the leader. For the current titleholder and the best team in Italy, such figures are unacceptable. In the current season, a difficult process of restructuring the team was launched. The outlines of the new Juventus are associated with the arrival of such talented football players as Kulusevski, Chiesa, Arthur, Morata, and McKennie. High hopes are also pinned on Bentancourt, Rabio, De Ligt, and Demiral. Ronaldo has a great season, and it is impossible to imagine the club's attacking line without him.
The progress of Sassuolo under the leadership of De Zerbi is obvious - competent tactical training, the growth of individual indicators of the players. Now the club occupies an intermediate fifth place in the standings, really claiming a place in the Champions League zone. It is unlikely that the Black-Greens will be able to get involved in the struggle for getting into the top four, but their position in the top six is quite real. This season, the club worked interestingly in the transfer market, having issued a number of purchases, as well as rental deals. Toljan and Traore joined the team on loan. Permanent contracts were signed with Chiriches, Ayhan, Romagna, Kyriakopoulos, Haraslin, Schiappacasse, and Defrel. Berardi, Caputo, and Djuricic are in good shape.
A simple match for the arena hosts is not expected. Modern Juventus has a lot of game problems, and all actions in the attack come down to the individual talents of the two leading players - Ronaldo and Morata. Pirlo's team needs to win the game against a direct competitor. Sassuolo has a well-set game but is significantly inferior to the opponent in class. However, it has amazing stats in away games. We think the Black-Greens won’t lose with a difference of more than one goal.
