Sassuolo vs Juventus: Predictions, Betting Tips & Odds
There have been a few eyebrow raising performances from Juventus recently and Sassuolo may be the ones to end the unbeaten run.
Towards the end of 2018 it was beginning to feel like Juventus may never lose in Serie A again, but just a month into the New Year, it appears as though the wheels are certainly beginning to wobble.
Among the few shaky games there’s been a narrow victory over AC Milan in the Italian Super Coppa, as well as a late comeback against Lazio, a 3-3 draw at home to Parma and a 3-0 loss against Atalanta.
Massimiliano Allegri’s Bianconeri side have always been excellent at responding to wake up calls but they appear to be falling on deaf ears.
A trip to the Mapei Stadium to face Sassuolo should be a mighty concern for the table toppers’ unbeaten run.
Whilst Roberto De Zerbi’s side have been in shaky form as of late, their goalscoring ability is enough to keep them in big games by itself and The Old Lady’s backline hasn’t looked like itself.
If the unbeaten run is to continue as well as wanting to go into their round of 16 Champions League tie in good form, a win here is imperative. It won’t be easy but Cristiano Ronaldo and co. have enough firepower to see them through, 2-1 Juventus.
Over 2.5 goals in the match @ 9/10 via UniBet
There have been over 2.5 goals in Juventus’ last six Serie A matches and the Bianconeri themselves have scored at least two goals in nine of their last 10 league matches. These are short odds but this bet has been a thorn in the side of betting sites this season and UniBet have over 2.5 goals at 9/10.
Juventus to win and both teams to score @ 11/5 via 10Bet
Whilst Allegri’s side possess the best defensive record in Serie A but they’ve been on shaky defensive form recently with three goals conceded against Parma and a rocky match against Lazio. Also a key factor is Sassuolo being no attacking chumps with 34 goals scored in 22 games, the sixth best record in Italy. Juve to win and BTTS is 11/5 at 10Bet.
