Juventus cannot make the derby a success
Massimiliano Allegri’s side got off to a poor start against Inter, conceding as early as 17 minutes from Edin Dzeko. It looked like a one-way street as the Nerazzurri played Juventus, scoring and then closing down while the Bianconeri tried to break down a massive defensive barrier. They succeeded only towards the end of the game and then with a penalty kick. On 89 minutes, Paulo Dibala converted the spot-kick. A draw was what Juventus hoped for in this game.
Moreover, Napoli finally collapsed, which meant they had a good chance to get closer to the leaders. At least Dibala scored. There’s reason to be happy for the injured Argentine forward.
After nine rounds, Juve have 15 points, 6th place in the standings, and 10 points behind AC Milan and Napoli, who are currently sharing first place in Serie A.
Sassuolo pick up a long-awaited win
In the previous round, Alessio Dionisi’s team hosted Venice. Sassuolo approached the match with just 8 points under their belt and dangerously close to the relegation zone. So, there was no way to justify losing points in a home game to an underdog. What’s more, a draw or defeat against Venezia could well prompt the resignation of coach Dionisi, who so far has failed to meet the expectations of the club’s management.
Fortunately for the coach, his men were confident in their performance. Sassuolo, although they conceded the game first, responded with three goals, deciding the outcome long before the end of the game, 3-. The Neroverdi now have 11 points, 13th place, and a 5-point handicap from the relegation zone.
Expert Betting Tips
There can hardly be any doubt that Juventus will win the upcoming match. And it’s not just the strength of the Turin side, which has been gaining strength recently. More importantly, it’s about the poor condition of Sassuolo at the moment. This is no longer Roberto De Zerbi’s side that has troubled all the Serie A sides without exception. At the moment, the Neroverdi are deservedly in the bottom of the standings and can hardly offer any resistance to Max Allegri’s gang in Turin.
The prediction is a win for Juventus.
- W1 and Total Under 4.5 for 1.90;
- Handicap 1 (-1) for 2.10;
- Sassuolo to score - no for 2.50.
