Probable line-ups: Juventus vs Sassuolo

Massimiliano Allegri’s reinforced Juventus host a talented Sassuolo side in a tough Serie A season opener this evening. 

The clash between the Bianconeri and the Neroverdi kicks off at 19.45 UK time at the Allianz Stadium in Turin.

Allegri has limited options for Juventus’ season opener, with seven players out due to either suspension or injury. Moise Kean and Adrien Rabiot, two players on the transfer list, are both suspended and Wojciech Szczesny, Arthur Melo, Paul Pogba, Federico Chiesa and Kaio Jorge are all sidelined with injuries. 

Things are much simpler for Alessio Dionisi, who only has to do without Maxime Lopez and Hamed Junior Traore; the former is suspended and the latter is out with a left foot fifth metatarsal fracture. Jeremy Toljan is also in doubt due to physical concerns.

Last campaign, Juventus suffered a frustrating 2-1 home defeat to Sassuolo but bounced back in the away match later in the season, winning 2-1.

Probable line-ups for Juventus vs Sassuolo: 

Juventus (4-4-1-1): Perin; Danilo, Bonucci, Bremer, Alex Sandro; Cuadrado, Zakaria, Locatelli, Kostic; Vlahovic; Di Maria.

Sassuolo (4-3-3): Consigli; Muldur, Erlic, Ferrari, Kyriakopoulos; Frattesi, Matheus Henrique, Thorstvedt; Berardi, Pinamonti, Ceide.
