Starting XI: Sassuolo v Juventus
Teams: Sassuolo v Juventus
Date: 10 February 2019
Venue: MAPEI Stadium
Juventus will be hoping to extend their lead over second-place Napoli when they travel to Sassuolo in Serie A on Sunday afternoon.
The match is set to begin at 19h00.
Bianconeri will be desperate to get back to form ahead of their UEFA Champions League meeting with Atletico Madrid in ten days’ time in Spain.
The Old Lady are in somewhat of a rough patch after they were knocked out of the Coppa Italia by Atalanta and while they draw 3-3 with Parma on home soil last weekend.
Massimiliano Allegri’s charges dropped points for only the third time this season, but they remain the only unbeaten team across Europe's top five leagues.
Meanwhile, Sassuolo will be looking to get into the top half of table as they lie in 11th spot, and only six points separates them with sixth-placed AC Milan.
Sassuolo last played to a 1-1 stalemate against Genoa last Sunday and the locals will relish the clash with Serie A champions, who may be distracted by a looming Champions League fixture coming up in just over a week’s time.
Here's how they line up:
Sassuolo: Consigli; Lirola, Magnani, Peluso, Rogerio; Bourabia, Sensi, Locatelli; Berardi, Babacar, Djuricic.
Juventus: Szczesny; De Sciglio, Cáceres, Rugani, Alex Sandro; Khedira, Pjanic, Matuidi; Bernardeschi, Mandzukic, Ronaldo.
