Massimiliano Allegri returned to Juventus last summer after two years, but the first season didn’t go according to expectations. Bianconeri finished Serie A in fourth place, far from the fight for the Scudetto. In order to progress, Juventus changed several players between two seasons.
The biggest signing this summer was Paul Pogba. He worked with Allegri at Juventus in the past and will represent a key part in the midfield. Offense was improved by signing Angel di Maria, plus now they have also Filip Kostic and centre-back Bremer. On the other hand, several players left Juventus including Paulo Dybala, Giorgio Chiellini, Alvaro Morata and Matthijs de Ligt.
Juventus will try to bring in another good player until the end of transfer window. If they fail to do so, this team still has serious quality, but time will tell if it is enough for the Scudetto. Juventus didn’t win a single trophy last season, and that hasn’t happened for a long time.
For eight years, Sassuolo has been a stable member of Serie A. Not once they finished the season below 12th position, which speaks enough about how good a job is being done at this club. There is no reason for them not to continue like this, only this time they will try to be inside the top 10. Definitely, they have the quality for such a thing.
During this summer, Sassuolo lost top scorer Gianluca Scamacca. They sold him to West Ham for 36 million euros, while Jeremie Boga went to Atalanta for 22 millions. As a replacement for Scamacca, Sassuolo signed Agustin Alvarez from Uruguay’s Penarol. In addition, they also loaned Andrea Pinamonti from Inter, who played very good for Empoli last season. The promising Kristian Thorstvedt arrived from Genk for 10 million euros and a lot is also expected from him.
Sassuolo couldn’t have a more difficult task at the beginning of the season than visiting Juventus. It’s not a place where teams expect to pick up points, although Sassuolo have managed to do so a couple of times over the last few years.
Three times these clubs played against each other last season and three times the score was 2:1. Juventus won twice and Sassuolo once. Interestingly, the first match of those three was played in Turin and belonged to Sassuolo. In total, they met 10 times in Turin in the last ten years. Eight times Juventus has achieved a win, once was a draw and once Sassuolo won.
Juventus will be without several players for the season opener against Sassuolo. Due to injury, Wojciech Szczesny, Paul Pogba, Mattia De Sciglio, Federico Chiesa and Weston McKennie won’t play. Hamed Junior Traore is the only one unavailable for Sassuolo.
Juventus vs. Sassuolo Prediction
Allegri is aware how important it is for his team to start winning from the first round. Regardless of the fact that Juventus will be without several players, they should achieve a win against Sassuolo.
