Juventus will be potentially weaker on the flanks for this game with Cuadrado and Alex Sandro not starting. Chiesa and Frabotta are expected to deputise on the flanks
It's also just come to light that De Ligt has tested positive for COVID
Juventus have conceded in 7 of their last 8 Serie A games, the exception being their game against Parma (Serie A's lowest scorers)
As I have spoken about a lot, Sassuolo have been outperforming their xG but we need to also remember that even with this overperformance they are still about the 7th best attack in Italy, outside of the Big 6 they're the best
Juve have played only 3 teams this season with better attacking numbers than Sassuolo and have conceded in all (Roma, Milan, and Atalanta)
From those game they gave up on average 1.57xGA and 14.6 attempts on their goal
Both games last season were end to end and highly entertaining, They played out a 2-2 and a 3-3, the average total xG from these games was 4.23
Like last season Sassuolo won't come into this match with any fear and will be confident of taking something from the game.
This season Sassuolo have played 5 of the big six and scored in 5. The exception being their 0-0 with Roma (No Caputo and Sassuolo tried to alter their play with Duricic starting CF
Having Caputo available again is a big plus, he's putting up 1.03 goal contributions per 90 mins. The reason for the generous price here is because Berardi is out.
Berardi is 2nd in this team for goal contributions but the expected attack of Boga, Duricic, Traore, Caputo should be enough o cause Juve some problems
Boga leads the team for goal creating actions while Duricic leads the team for shot creating actions
Juventus have conceded on average 1.6 goals per game in their last 10 against top half opponents (Sassuolo 5th)
Believe it or not, Sassuolo actually have a better clean sheet record than Juventus (last 20) with 6 compared to Juve's 4
