Juventus host Sassuolo on Sunday afternoon which should be technically built up as a ‘top of the table clash’. Juventus expectedly are in first position as they an unanticipated 2nd place team, Sassuolo, who have already sprung a few surprises so far this season, and will hope to cause another major shock at 3:00pm local time on Sunday.

Home Team: Juventus

Everything has gone exactly to plan so far this season for Juventus, as they have registered three wins on the bounce. However, what hasn’t gone to plan, is the fact that Ronaldo is yet to score his first competitive goal for the club.

Cristiano Ronaldo was rested by his national team Portugal over the international break, so he’ll be fresh and ready to start scoring some goals for his club. It is not for the lack of trying though, as he has performed well in the three games so far, and has been stopped by several fantastic saves. Knowing the pressure that he is under, by the football media, and by himself, he knows he can’t go through many more games without scoring.

A win for Juventus will keep them at top of the table, and already sending out a clear message of intent.

Away Team: Sassuolo

Surprise package Sassuolo had found themselves in 2nd place before the international break, surprising many pundits. With Kevin Prince-Boateng amongst their ranks, they have managed to pull off three impressive results so far this season.

They defeated Inter Milan on the opening day, showing their resilience by scoring a 99th minute penalty to salvage a draw in Cagliari and most recently stuck five past Genoa in an eight goal thriller.

After finishing mid table last season, they will aim to push for European places this time round. Despite getting off to a fantastic start, they know that they will be facing their most difficult challenge on Sunday, and they will be hoping they do not get a harsh reality check when facing Ronaldo, Mandzukic and co.

Head to Head (H2H)

Sassuolo will want to forget the last time that they visited the Allianz Stadium, as they were demolished 7-0 just seven months ago. It comes as no surprise that Juventus has dominated the head to head between these two sides in the two team’s small and recent rivalry.

“Utter domination”

The sides have faced each other 10 times, with Sassuolo winning on just one occasion back in 2015, and Juventus have won 8 out of the 10 meetings. If you want to dig deeper and look at just the record at the Allianz Stadium, then it draws for even more concern for Sassuolo, as they have lost on all five occasions, scoring once and conceding 16 times.

Juventus vs Sassuolo Predictions and Betting Tips

If you ignored the previous paragraph, then you may still be tempted to put some money on Sassuolo upsetting the odds here. They are at 12/1 to get a win or 11/2 to get a draw.

For Sassuolo to win 1-0 OR 2-1 OR 2-0 you can get prices of 14/1. However, if you look to their history in this fixture, and ignore their impressive start to the season, then you can only bet on Juventus to get the victory here (1/5).

Juventus are yet to humiliate any teams so far this season, and their repeat of another 7-0 in this fixture is unlikely, so betting on score lines such as 1-0 (15/2), 2-0 (11/2) or 3-1 (9/1) would be the way to go. Finally, let’s look at odds for a certain player to get on the scoresheet. Ronaldo is a staggeringly low 4/7 to score at any time in the fixture. He used to score a goal a game at Real Madrid, but no goals in three games would suggest those odds are not kind enough – but who really thinks he will go four games without scoring?
