Sassuolo vs Juventus Prediction: Serie A Match on 12.05.2021
Serie A Preview: Andrea Pirlo’s job at Juventus is hanging in the balance, as the Old Lady come into the final couple of weeks of the Serie A season fighting for their place in the Champions League next season.
Serie A Preview
Juventus’ chances of finishing in the top four this season are out of their hands, as they will be relying on the sides above them to drop points if they are to be playing in the Champions League next season. The Old Lady have won just twice in their last five games, and that has left them back in fifth and a point behind Napoli, who are currently the side in fourth in the league standings. Juventus dropped outside the top four this past weekend, as they were beaten comprehensively at home by AC Milan. Milan hammered Juventus 3-0. In a season of more lows than highs, this was a damaging evening for the Old Lady. They managed just one shot on target in the 90 minutes, and there was surprise at just how badly they capitulated in the second half. A response is needed this week.
Sassuolo will be looking to add to the Juventus pain this week, as they have been in excellent form recently. No side has won more games over their previous six outings, and a win against the Old Lady would likely be enough to lift them up to seventh in the standings. Sassuolo have won five from six recently, and picked up their most recent win against Genoa last weekend. Giacomo Raspadori and Domenico Berardi scored the two goals in the victory for Sassuolo. Another win this weekend could be enough to end Juventus’ hopes of Champions League football next season altogether.
Sassuolo vs Juventus Head To Head
Sassuolo have beaten Juventus on just one occasion in the 15 meetings between the sides. That win for Sassuolo came six years ago, as they beat the Old Lady 1-0 in October 2015. Since then, Juventus have won eight of the previous ten meetings. Juventus won the meeting between the sides earlier in the season 3-1.
Sassuolo vs Juventus Prediction
This is the biggest game of the Pirlo-era at Juventus. Defeat on the road could spell the end to his managerial reign at the club, and Sassuolo are dangerous opponents. We find it hard to see Juventus winning against their in-form opponents, but a draw could be the most likely result.
