Juventus v Sassuolo Betting Preview – Serie A 16th September 2.00pm

This is a surprise top-two clash in Serie A this weekend. The fact that Juventus is top is no surprise and neither is them having won all three of their games. It has been another strong opening for them but Sassuolo could leap frog them with a win. They will be defending an unbeaten record this season to having taken seven from nine. Read our predictions for the Juventus v Sassuolo fixture.

Juventus v Sassuolo Betting Tips

It has been a routine run of results from Juventus this season in Serie A. That is, they have won them all. The Old Lady have produced at least two goals in each of those games as well. We fancy this game to go over 2.5 goals because their opponents on the weekend have been clicking well in front of goal too. A straight shot over the goal line isn’t great value so for our Juventus v Sassuolo predictions we are looking at Juventus/Over 2.5 goals option at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on September 12th, 2018 at 9:04 pm). That has happened in two of the three league games this season.

Juventus have netted at least two goals in each of their last four games against Sassuolo. Cristiano Ronaldo is still awaiting the chance to celebrate his first goal for Juventus. He will be fresh as he asked to not be selected for Portugal during this recent international break. Ronaldo is the 2/1 first goalscorer favourite* (betting odds taken on September 12th, 2018 at 9:04 pm), despite not having hit the back of the net yet. Last season Juventus produced a tremendous W16 D1 L2 record at home in Turin in Serie A. Their one home game this season saw them beat Lazio 2-0.

Sassuolo would be looking for something very special in this one. It has been a great start to the season for them as they are sat on a W2 D1 record after three games played. They only produced a mid-table finish last season, and they were the lowest scorers in the entire league with just 29 goals netted. So their goals and form at the start of this season have been a little surprising. They pulled off a surprise win over Inter on the opening weekend of the season, before following that up with a draw against Cagliari. Just before the international break, they rolled out a 5-3 win over Genoa so have been producing in front of goals. However, they have conceded five in their last two.

Juventus v Sassuolo Head to Head

There have only been the ten previous meetings between Juventus and Sassuolo. It has largely been all Juventus with the wins as they hold a W8 D1 L1 from those meetings against Sassuolo. Juve have won all five of their previous home games against them, conceding just the one goal in the process. It was a 7-0 win for Juventus in last season’s corresponding fixture.

Juventus v Sassuolo Predictions

We have to roll with Juventus carrying on in their winning ways. They have produced the goods so far and even though their opponents have started well, that’s not going to deter from backing the Old Lady. Home win & over 2.5 goals gets our fancy.
