Juventus is set to face Sassuolo for another Serie A fixture on January 16 at Allianz Stadium.
Following the disaster they experienced in Sassuolo at the end of September 2023, Juventus’ season appeared to be in limbo. Their 4-2 loss, which is still the only one Bianconeri has had so far this season, saw the shortcomings of the previous campaign resurface in the form of a worrisome defensive weakness and a disorganized high press. However, Massimiliano Allegri swiftly rebuilt a rock-solid team on the rubble of that disastrous display. This team has remained close to leaders Inter despite being hesitant to take many chances. Since matchday five, Juventus has won every Serie A game by a margin of no more than 1 goal. They have also kept 8 clean sheets in their last 13 games. With his outstanding showing, Samuel Illing Junior is most likely going to replace Filip Kostic in the starting lineup, while Weston McKennie is serving a one-game ban for collecting too many yellow cards. Federico Chiesa must race against time to be ready for this upcoming match.
Sassuolo are incredibly unpredictable. Together, their 2 strikers, Berardi (9 goals) and Pinamonti (7 goals), have totaled more goals than Juve’s top 3 scorers. Both strikers are among the top 5 goal scorers in Serie A. Even though the Neroverdi’s last 2 Serie A games ended in 1-0 victories, these score lines are incredibly misleading. Sassuolo actually had more opportunities than AC Milan in their loss at San Siro, but Andrea Consigli, the goalkeeper, was the star of the show versus Fiorentina in their last game as he stopped several dangerous shots and a penalty. Due to injuries, Pedro Mba Obiang, Uros Racic, and Matias Vina should all be out for the visiting team. Sassuolo will have to do their best in this showing to beat a great Juventus team.
