With three defeats from four games, Alessio Dionisi’s side will not be looking forward to the visit of an in-form Juventus. BetUS offers the best Serie A betting odds for Sassuolo vs Juventus.
Fade Sassuolo This Weekend
Having picked up just three points from four games, Sassuolo will be heading into the weekend keen to get their stuttering season up and running. Alessio Dionisi’s side fell to a damaging 4-2 defeat to Frosinone last weekend, leaving them 17th in the very early Serie A table.
Sassuolo may be concerned about the ruthlessness of Juventus’ attacking duo that put three past a solid Lazio team last weekend. They have good reason to be worried, as Sassuolo capitulated against Frosinone, throwing away a two-goal lead. We won’t include this team in our best Serie A bets for the weekend.
Alessio Dionisi may look to switch things up following his team’s defeat to Frosinone. The coach could revert to a more familiar 4-3-3 formation, bringing Kristian Thorstvedt back into the starting lineup to balance out the squad. Midfielder Agustin Alvarez misses out with an ACL injury but should be the only absentee in the home team.
Juventus on Fire
Juventus will be looking to keep up their spell of strong form as they travel east to face Sassuolo this weekend. Juventus has made an unbeaten start to their Serie A campaign and come into this match off the back of an impressive win over Lazio last weekend.
This season started with question marks about Max Allegri and his troops, as a poor summer transfer window was exacerbated by UEFA’s decision to ban them from European football following an FFP violation. However, four games in and the mood has decidedly changed at the Allianz Stadium.
The Italian giants have now gone three seasons without a title after dominating Italy for so long, but they look great this season and should fight Inter and AC Milan for the title. Without European commitments, Juventus is the team to back with our Soccer Picks for September 23.
The team’s significant improvement is demonstrated by Dusan Vlahovic’s remarkable turnaround. Following a poor output last season, the forward was heavily linked with a move away over the summer. But having decided to stay in Turin, he has bagged four goals already.
Few changes are expected from Max Allegri following a dominant display at Lazio. Weston McKennie was particularly impressive at right fullback, while Fillip Kostic and Andrea Cambiaso will fight it out for a start on the opposing flank. Mattia De Sciglio remains sidelined through injury.
Juventus a Sure Bet vs Sassuolo
The win against Verona was Sasuolo’s only home league victory from their last five attempts, a record that needs further improvement if they want to do better than their 13th-place finish last campaign.
The visitors remain perfect on the road this season, winning both of their away matches to nil, and will now target taking victory from their opening three away outings without conceding for the first time since 2014.
The hosts won three of their previous three head-to-heads against Sassuolo. We’ve seen at least three goals in 13 of the last 14 mutual encounters between the two sides. There’s been a first-half penalty in both of Juventus’ away league matches this term, while Sassuolo’s last three outings also saw a penalty.

Sassuolo vs Juventus Soccer Odds and Predictions
The visitors enter this clash as favorites, priced at -120 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds, while the goal line is set at 2½.
Sassuolo tends to up their game for matches against the Serie A giants. In fact, across their last five meetings, Juventus has only beaten the Sassuolo by one goal on three occasions. Looking at recent form, we may be in for another high-scoring game this weekend. Juventus should have enough to pick up the three points, but for better soccer odds, we will combine the moneyline with the goals market.
