Juventus turns their attentions back to domestic matters this weekend, as they look for a return to winning ways to close the gap on the top six. However, Sassuolo will have home advantage, as they look to avenge their defeat last weekend.


Serie A Preview

Juventus may believe that their best chance to get back into Europe next season will come through winning the Europa League. However, they could yet achieve a top six finish in Serie A. The Old Lady comes into this showdown on Sunday sitting seventh in the overall standings, and they are just four points off Atalanta. However, they saw their three-game winning run brought to a halt last weekend. 

Their away from would be a slight worry coming into this fixture, as they have lost two of their last three, with both defeats coming at the Stadio Olimpico. Before those losses, the Old Lady had won six of their last seven. Juventus should also come into this game in good confidence after picking up a 1-0 win in the Europa League over Sporting Lisbon in midweek. 

Sassuolo is one of a number of teams in Serie A with very little to play for at this late stage of the season, as they are set to finish in the middle of the standings. They had been in good form up until last weekend, where their five-match unbeaten run was brought to an end by Hellas Verona. 

But, their home form has been reliable in the second half of the season to this point, as they have picked up three wins from five matches. That is an excellent response after winning just three games from their opening nine home matches in the first half of the season.
