Tip Sassuolo - Juventus
Juventus’ season isn’t going too well and after the defeat to Milan, they are staring at missing a top four finish. They will be traveling away to Sassuolo in round 36 of the Serie A. Going to the game, they have 69 points, in fifth place while eighth placed Sassuolo have 56 points. The hosts are seeking to rise to sixth to at least have some European football next season so both sides can’t afford to drop points, which makes this an interesting game. Sassuolo had a nervy ending in their game against Genoa, but held on to win 2-1 after conceding late. This was their sixth unbeaten league game, and they have won five in there. Seven of their last 10 matches have produced over 2.5 goals and they have only two clean sheets in the process. With three wins and four draws in the last seven home league games and having ambitions for this game, Sassuolo will have reason to believe they can frustrate Juventus.
Juventus suffered a 3-0 loss at home to direct competitors for a top four finish, Milan. They will hope for recovery here as they also pray that sides above them drop points. That was their second loss in five matches, after earlier losing 1-0 to another top four contender Atalanta. Juventus have lost their defensive mettle and most of their issues this season have emanated from that. They have no clean sheet in 11 straight league matches and it hasn’t been any easier away from home, with the Turin giants going without a clean sheet in the last seven. They have two wins only in the last seven away matches. Three of the last five away league games have produced over 2.5 goals and they’ve failed to score in one.
