Juventus are looking to build on their win over Serie A leaders AC Milan when they welcome surprise package Sassuolo on Sunday evening (7.45pm kick-off, UK time).
Andrea Pirlo’s side ran out 3-1 winners against the Rossoneri and could make it three consecutive league wins, something they’ve not managed this season, but Sassuolo will be a hard nut to crack given their recent away form (one loss across eight matches this season).

Juventus vs Sassuolo build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
A much-needed win over Serie A leaders AC Milan has propelled Juventus back into the championship picture. With one game in hand they’re seven points behind, and now the onus will be on them to stretch a two-match winning streak. At home, Pirlo’s men have not been their flawless selves as the Italian champions have picked up four wins from eight played, leaving them with the league’s fourth best record on the road.
As for the visitors Sassuolo it couldn’t be any more different. Heading into this weekend’s game Roberto De Zerbi’s side have accumulated 17 points from 24 available on the road, with their only loss coming last time out when they were humbled 5-1 by a reinvigorated Atalanta team. A run of two wins from their most recent five Serie A games has seen the sheen come off what had been an incredible start to this season. Having sat in the Champions League places, they now sit just outside but Napoli and Atalanta, who are one point behind, have played a game fewer.
- Juventus (vs AC Milan): Szczesny; Danilo, Bonucci, De Ligt, Frabotta; Chiesa, Rabiot, Bentancur, Ramsey; Dybala, Ronaldo.
- Sassuolo (vs Genoa): Consigli; Muldur, Ayhan, Ferrari, Rogerio; Magnanelli, Locatelli; Berardi*, Djuricic, Boga; Caputo.
Juan Cuadrado and Alex Sandro are missing for the Italian champions whilst Alvaro Morata nurses a muscle injury. Domenico Berardi will sit this game out for Sassuolo after sustaining a serious hamstring injury. He is joined in the physio room by Federico Ricci and Filippo Romagna.
Players to watch:
Juventus: Sharing the load is a feature Pirlo will hope characterises his Juventus team one day. For now there’s a sizeable gap between leading marksman Cristiano Ronaldo on 14 goals and second place. But crucially we see two players on four goals apiece and lately Federico Chiesa, who joined from Fiorentina last summer, has started repaying that faith. Those aforementioned strikes have all come in his last five Serie A appearances; if he manages to score this weekend then Chiesa reaches a personal milestone, never before has the Italian forward registered a goal in three consecutive league matches.
Sassuolo: Things are looking up for Sassuolo and they’re expected to show no fear when visiting the Italian champions, and with good reason. Not only because of their form this season, which has astounded many observers, but also by having someone of Francesco Caputo‘s ilk at manager De Zerbi’s disposal. The 33-year-old striker already has six goals and Juve happens to be one of his favourite opponents. In four previous appearances against the Old Lady he’s been involved in five goals (scoring three and creating two more).
