Sassuolo vs Juventus predictions ahead of Wednesday’s match in Serie A

These two sides come into this clash with plenty of reasons to be confident going forward. This is usually a great venue for Juve, who will be aiming to take a big step towards the title. That could happen, as in each of their last seven Serie A matches against Sassuolo, Juventus have scored at least two goals, scoring 22 goals in total – an average of 3.1 per game.

However, the hosts are flying in the league at the moment. Sassuolo’s matches have produced 33 goals in seven games since the league restarted, an average of 4.7 per match – the highest in Serie A in this period. On top of that, Sassuolo have won four league games in a row for the first time since August 2016; they could win five consecutive matches in a single Serie A campaign for the first time in their history.

Ronaldo making his mark
We’re going with goals in our predictions, especially when you consider how well Juve’s key man is doing right now. The superstar has scored in 17 of his last 18 league appearances, firing himself towards an impressive milestone. Juventus striker, Cristiano Ronaldo, could become the fastest player to reach 50 goals in Serie A, among those who made their debut in the three points for a win era, scoring 49 goals in 59 games so far.

He will become the first player in history to score 50+ goals in the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A. With the golden boot within his grasp, Ronaldo is making great strides towards more individual success. We expect him to continue that with a goal here, as Ronaldo is our anytime goalscorer prediction for this one. Another strike will see him make history, while it will continue to cover up Juve’s problems.

Openings for both sides
Juve may be on course for the title, but they are far from a classic Italian backline. Since 1962-63, just one team has finished a Serie A season in first position having conceded more than 31 goals after MD32 – AC Milan in 1998-99 (33); Juventus have conceded 32 goals so far. They’ve looked much too open, with 75% of their away trips seeing both teams score.

We are backing that run to continue against a Sassuolo team who have scored 17 goals in six matches. The hosts have seen all of their matches since the restart finish with both teams scoring. We’re backing the same again here, while we’re backing a 2-2 draw for a Juve side who have scored twice in their last two games without winning. Meanwhile, Sassuolo have scored two or more in each of their last six.
