Juventus: Preparing for Next Season
It’s not the best season for the Italian giants as they sit fourth in the league standings, trailing leaders AC Milan by eight points. They are out of the Champions League being knocked out by Villarreal in the round of 16. On a positive note, they earned their Italian Cup final spot beating Fiorentina 3-0 on aggregate. There’s huge pressure on their coach, Max Allegri, who has to seal a UCL place for next season in order to consolidate his managerial job.
Juve is hitting form ahead of the final five rounds of the season with 13 points picked up in their last six league games, including key wins over Fiorentina and Sampdoria during that run. Despite a solid level of recent consistency, Juventus has struggled to convert their huge amount of scoring opportunities. A victory for Juve in this fixture could wrap up their Champions League spot.
It’s important to note that the two teams chasing them, AS Roma and Lazio, will play Inter and AC Milan respectively, which are the top two teams in the standings who are fighting for the Scudetto.
Many Bianconeri fans are still in a state of shock by the news that one of their favorite players, Paulo Dybala, a man who truly loved playing for the Italian giants, will leave in the summer. They still have Dusan Vlahovic, but the Serbian striker is underperforming since moving from Fiorentina to Juventus.
Juve is certainly losing a quality player. Nobody has scored more Serie A goals or offered more assists for the “old lady” this term, which is impressive given has only featured in 22 fixtures. Despite their positive run of form, we can’t trust Juventus so we won’t add them in our soccer picks and parlays.
Juventus have started talks with PSG’s Angel Di Maria ahead of a possible free transfer in the summer. The forward’s contract expires with Paris Saint-Germain at the end of this season and it will not be renewed, leaving him to find a new home over the coming months.
Sassuolo has won just two of their last five league games, as they look to consolidate a possible top-half finish in the coming weeks. In the last six weeks, the hosts weren’t able to win back-to-back games having huge problems on the road. Last weekend, they returned home with zero points after a disappointing 1-0 defeat to relegation-threatened Cagliari.
Sassuolo’s rising star Giacomo Raspadori is delighted to be linked with a move to Juventus. The Italian international is one of Juventus’ targets to replace Paulo Dybala in the summer. He has scored nine goals and delivered five assists in 33 appearances across all competitions this season. He was part of the Italy squad that won the Euros last summer. He has three goals in nine appearances with the Azzurri. This is the perfect opportunity for him to show his talent and maybe find the back of the net against his future team.
Sassuolo is still without injured duo Jeremy Toljan and Abdou Harroui, with the pair unlikely to feature again this season. If you’re soccer betting you should know that teams like Sassuolo, despite having their problems against lower-ranked teams, always deliver against the top sides like Juventus.
Sassuolo vs Juventus Head-to-Head
This is the third time the two teams face each other this season with Sassuolo beating Juventus in the reverse fixture 2-1 on the road while Juventus knocked them out of the Italian Cup back in February. Both teams contributed to the scoresheet in the previous six mutual encounters between the two sides. The hosts have contributed on the scoreboard in eight of their last nine fixtures across all competitions while Juventus has kept just one clean sheet in their last five league games. Sassuolo won are unbeaten in their last four home games winning three and scoring at least twice in each match.

Sassuolo vs Juventus Predictions
The visitors enter this clash as favorites being priced at -125 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds while the goal line is set at three.
Sassuolo is still on course to secure a third consecutive top-half finish despite an inconsistent run. They are now looking to make the double against Juventus for the first time even after pulling off the upset and beating them in the reverse fixture. Juventus have a good recent away record against Sassuolo, netting exactly three goals in five of their last eight mutual encounters.
It’s risky to back Juventus, but on paper, they are the better side. Still, Sassuolo’s youngsters will take this opportunity to show their skills so we will avoid the winners’ market. Instead, we are going for goals as we expect an entertaining match with goals from both sides and at least three goals in the match.
