Sassuolo vs Juventus Odds
In the previous round, Sassuolo lost to Frosinone with a score of 4-2. The visiting team had already doubled their lead by the 24th minute, with Andrea Pinamonti scoring on both occasions, assisted by Matias Vina and Jeremy Toljan. However, the home team managed to completely turn the result in their favor and secure a victory in this clash.
Before this match, Sassuolo had also been defeated by Napoli (2-0) and Atalanta (0-2), with their only Serie A victory coming against Verona (3-1). They currently occupy the 17th position on the table with just three points, while at the start of the season, they also defeated Cosenza 5-2 in the first round of the Coppa Italia.
Sassuolo’s main attacking threat, Domenico Berardi, has scored only one goal in 12 appearances against Juventus in the Italian top flight, and none from open play.
Long-term absentee Agustin Alvarez is still not ready for action, while the injured goalkeeper Andrea Consigli is in a race against time to return for Saturday’s game, with his deputy Alessio Cragno remaining on standby.
In the last encounter, Juventus defeated Lazio 3-1 at home. They took the lead as early as the 10th minute through Serbian striker Dusan Vlahovic, with an assist from Manuel Locatelli. They doubled their lead in the 26th minute when Adrien Rabiot set up Federico Chiesa to score. In the 64th minute, the visiting team managed to reduce Juventus’ lead, but just three minutes later, Weston McKennie provided a brilliant assist to Vlahovic, who scored again, sealing the final result in this match.
After four rounds played, Juventus is in the second position on the table with 10 points, two behind the leader Inter. They defeated Udinese 3-0 in the first round, then drew 1-1 with Bologna, and before the Lazio match, they also triumphed over Empoli with a score of 2-0.
Following American midfielder Weston McKennie’s impressive performance last weekend, coach Maximiliano Allegri may opt to keep the same players on the wings against Sassuolo, with Filip Kostic winning the battle against Andrea Cambiaso for the left-wing position. Alex Sandro and Mattia De Sciglio are unavailable due to injuries, and Paul Pogba is still waiting for the outcome of his doping case. However, Juventus should travel to Reggio Emilia with an otherwise full squad.
After a week of rest and time on the training field, one of the few advantages of being banned from UEFA competition, Dusan Vlahovic and Federico Chiesa should be fit and ready to continue their partnership in attack. Vlahovic could become only the fifth Juventus player in the last 40 years to score at least five goals in the first five rounds, while Chiesa has had his best scoring start in Serie A with three goals in the first four matchdays.

Juventus is a slight favorite in this matchup due to their better form, head-to-head history, and current position in the table. Nevertheless, Sassuolo has the advantage of playing at home, so we cannot confidently predict a win for the visitors. Therefore, our betting suggestion is a draw or a Juventus win, with at least two goals expected to be scored, as an open game is anticipated.
