Juventus had little trouble in September with Sassuolo in the home game, after 65 minutes it was already 2-0 and only in the extension Sassuolo could give something back. Now Juve is in lesser shape due to the lack of three central defenders, can Sassuolo now have a better result?
Sassuolo hit Kevin-Prince Boateng in the first half of the season, which happened to be transfer free.

Also in the game against Genoa last weekend, Sassuolo was the better team, but could not turn a field superiority into a win. Despite eight good chances against only two for Genoa, the game ended in 1-1.

Hereafter, a defeat loss (3-0) in the Coppa Italia against Parma followed, leaving the cup holder out and the 3-3 home against Parma. Two goals and an assist from Cristiano Ronaldo were not enough, Juventus gave away eleven chances to counter-team Parma.
After the weak show against Parma, the players got two days of rest. In the meantime, Bernardeschi seems to have recovered from the minor injury he sustained against Parma. Spinazzola, on the other hand, is struggling with a bruised ankle, Douglas Costa drove his Jeep total loss midweek but got rid of it unharmed, but he is still recovering from an injury he sustained against Parma.
