Sassuolo and Juventus

Match Date: 28 April 2014 (local time)

Venue: Città del Tricolore


Sassuolo’s survival hopes were ignited when the talismanic Domenico Berardi scored a crucial goal during the match against Chievo Verona. Many are hoping that Sassuolo sustains its momentum and continue to impress during its upcoming match against Juventus.


Berardi’s strike took place during the first half of the match and because of this superb performance, the club has managed to get out of the relegation zone and even overtook Bologna, Livorno and Catania.


Despite the fact that Juventus remains as the clash’s online betting favorite, Sassuolo’s determination to survive will never fail in bringing excitement to the match.


Sassuolo is not the only club which sees the upcoming battle as a means to survive. The same thing sounds true to Juve.


Indeed, Juve is also eyeing for survival. But this has something to do with how they can defend their title well. Antonio Conte can neither be too sure nor confident in keeping the title. Roma’s top brass, Rudi Garcia is unwilling to wave the white flag despite Juve’s 8-point lead.


Thus, the only way that the Bianconeris can keep their title safe is to have a consistent performance in their remaining matches. They should be careful with Sassuolo too for the latter is capable of causing an upset, just like what they did to Chievo Verona.


Juventus has been undefeated in 10 of its last 11 matches and kept a clean sheet in 8 of them. Needless to say, these aspects alone give them the overt advantage against their opponents.


Prediction:  Juventus
