Juventus will host Sassuolo in their Second home game of the season, as Cristiano Ronaldo is still waiting for his first goal in the Bianconeri colours.
The Old Lady have started the season in the best way possible by winning all 3 league matches they have played so far this season and they will hope to continue this winning streak against an impressive Sassuolo side at the Allianz Stadium on Sunday.
The biggest question for Juventus this weekend will be how much Massimiliano Allegri will rotate the squad keeping in mind the upcoming Champions League opener against La Liga side Valencia.
Sassuolo themselves come into this game undefeated in their opening three games having notched up an impressive eight goals along the way.
What The Managers Are Saying –
MAX ALLEGRI –
This is where the seasons starts in earnest. Our first objectives are to qualify from our Champions League group and lead the way in the league in order to be fighting on all fronts come March. There can be no questioning Paulo Dybala’s qualities. I liked his performance against Parma. As with all the other players, he needs to keep working towards reaching peak condition.
ROBERTO DE ZERBI –
This is a top of the table clash, that’s what the results tell us. We had three good performances and seven points we fully deserved. We’re going to Turin in order to pick up points and not with the idea we’ve got nothing to lose, because otherwise we’ve already lost.
