Sassuolo vs Juventus Preview and Lineups – Serie A Round 34

Tricolore is the venue as mid-table Sassuolo and fourth-placed Juventus lock horns in a handsomely-looking Serie A fixture. An exciting match-up in Reggio Emilia will serve to round off Matchday 34 in Italy’s top division. 

Despite blowing hot and cold across their last five league outings (W2, D1, L2), Sassuolo are on course to ensure a third successive Serie A top-half finish. Alessio Dionisi’s men have been one of the most entertaining sides to watch this Serie A season, mainly thanks to the relatively inexperienced squad headlined by the highly-rated youngster Hamed Traore. 

On the other hand, Juventus thumped Fiorentina 2-0 in midweek Coppa Italia action to make the grand final and stay in the running for a piece of silverware. Other than a decent Coppa Italia campaign, this season has been a disappointment through and through for the record-time Italian champions. 

Pedro Obiang and Jeremy Toljan are unavailable for selection in the Sassuolo camp, while Abdou Harroui could make the bench after recovering from a minor physical problem. After missing out on a couple of fixtures with injury, standout forward Domenico Berardi could start the game.

Juventus cannot call upon the services of Arthur, Manuel Locatelli and Weston McKennie, as revealed by Allegri during the presser. Speaking to Juventus’ website, the experienced tactician opened up the possibility for Adrien Rabiot, Danilo and Denis Zakaria to make the cut. 

Sassuolo Potential Starting XI (4-2-3-1): Andrea Consigli; Ruan Tressoldi, Vlad Chiriches, Gian Marco Ferrari, Giorgos Kyriakopoulos; Francesco Magnanelli, Maxime Lopez; Domenico Berardi, Giacomo Raspadori, Hamed Traore; Gianluca Scamacca.

Juventus Potential Starting XI (4-4-2): Wojciech Szczesny; Juan Cuadrado, Leonardo Bonucci, Matthijs de Ligt, Alex Sandro; Federico Bernardeschi, Denis Zakaria, Adrien Rabiot, Luca Pellegrini; Paulo Dybala, Dusan Vlahovic.
