Starting XI: Juve v Sassuolo

Serie A 

Teams: Juventus v Sassulo

Date: 16 September 2018

Venue: Juventus Stadium

Serie A champions Juventus resume league  action with an encounter at home to Sassuolo this afternoon.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 15h00.

The Old Lady are the only side to register three wins in their opening three matches, after seeing off Chievo, Lazio and Parma.

All eyes will undoubtedly be on Cristiano Ronaldo, with the Portuguese yet to open his scoring account for the champions.

Sassuolo, meanwhile, have also enjoyed a good start to the season after registering two wins and a draw.

The visitors come into the clash on the back of a thrilling 5-3 win over Genoa last weekend.

Massimiliano Allegri will have happy memories about this fixture last season, after romping to a 7-0 win, with Gonzalo Higuain, who is now on loan at AC Milan, netting a hat-trick.

Here's how they line up:

Juventus: Woijciech Szczesny; Mattia De Sciglio, Medhi Benatia, Leonardo Bonucci, Alex Sandro; Sami Khedira, Emre Can, Blaise Matuidi; Paulo Dybala, Mario Mandzukic, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Sassuolo: Andrea Consigli; Pol Lirola, Marlon, Gian Marco Ferrari, Rogerio; Alfred Duncan, Manuel Locatelli, Mehdi Bourabia; Domenico Berardi, Filip Duricic, Kevin-Prince Boateng.
