Serie A Preview | Juventus vs. Sassuolo: Dybala and Chiesa return

by | Oct 26, 2021 20:46

Federico Chiesa and Paulo Dybala return to Juventus’ starting XI with Mattia Perin in goal.

Juventus are unbeaten in the last six Serie A games and host Sassuolo after their 1-1 draw against Inter.

Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata will start up front, with Mattia Perin replacing Wojciech Szczesny between the sticks.

Giorgio Chiellini will rest, so Matthijs de Ligt and Leonardo Bonucci will start in the heart of the Bianconeri’s defence.

Either Mattia De Sciglio or Alex Sandro will start at left-back.

Sassuolo’s Jeremie Boga and Filip Djuricic are injured and so is Pedro Obiang.

Gregoire Defrel will replace Boga at left winger and Hamad Toure will get the nod in the Trequartista role behind Giacomo Raspadori.
