Description: CAG Vs JUV Dream11 Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Champions Juventus look to wrap up the league with a winning spree and reclaim their staunch stature in the league
In the end, it was a sluggish slog towards the glistening trophy but Juventus will be hardly perplexed by that narrative. What matters at the end of the day for the club is the fact that they managed to win their ninth successive Serie A trophy with two matches to spare in the 2019-20 season and once again show why so little sides have been little to break their dominance in the competition.
The club’s 38th title in their long and glistening trophy haul, Juventus saw themselves being crowned champions after downing Sampdoria 2-0 in gameweek 36. The result not only saw them lift the prestigious and much coveted trophy but also relieve themselves of the ever mounting pressure after a series of drab and uninspiring results.
Now out of that impasse, the club will be looking to utilise its last couple of ties to express itself freely. With a crucial Champions League encounter against Lyon awaiting the club after the culmination of the league, for Juventus today’s skirmish against Cagliari is a means to iron out the ever present issues shrouding the club since the resumption of football in Italy.
CAG Vs JUV Dream11 Probable Winner
Two straight defeats and without a in in their last five encounters, Cagliari are going through one of the worst period in the league. The gruelling and tedious schedule has turned out to be too tough for the club to traverse its way past with the side being rendered obsolete and redundant since the league’s recall.
And the side’s abject form will continue as the apathy is pounced on by a Juventus side out celebrating its title triumph in gameweek 37.

CAG Vs JUV Dream11 Picks
Cagliari’s Alessio Cragno will be inducted in our Dream 11 team as the goal-keeper for the impending fixture. The shot stopper has been the only source of solace in a beleaguered backline with the player ensuring his side was restricted to just the solitary goal in the bygone outing.
After failing to score in the bygone encounter, Cagliari are now without a goal in their last three encounters. This is a side which has run its race, an attacking ship which is bereft of wing in its sail to see it become a sinking ship with each passing encounter.
And when they come across the second finest defence in the league, a Juventus that has embedded in place pathbreaking displays to allow a mere 38 goals past in, the hosts are going to be left bereaved once again. Their sullied defence will serve as a means to fulfil Juventus’ insatiable hunger for cleansheets to see the dynamic triad of Alex Sandro, Juan Cuadrado and Leonardo Bonucci all make a foray into our framework.
The injuries to Dybala and Costa have seen Federico Bernardeschi get a chance to revive his languishing career at Juventus. After a despondent season, he’s looking to show why he deserves an extended stay at the club with the player scoring for the side in the foregone 2-0 win.
He is going to be linked up with Rodrigo Bentacur who has strung in the 7 assists for the club, a figure which alludes towards the guile and acumen he has in the attacking docket. Cagliari are meanwhile going to see the partnership of Marko Rog and Artur Ionita be roped into our framework owing to the manner in which they have acted as the watchdog of the side’s defensive gameplan.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored for Juventus the last time around to take his tally to 31 goals and remain alive in the reckoning for this season’s Golden Boot. He’s joined up by striker Gonzalo Higuaín who looks set to finally wrench out of the goalless quagmire he is in when he takes on a regressing backline.
Cagliari will meanwhile see us opt for the pick of Joao Pedro, a player who ensured the club was never embroiled in the tiff for the relegation zone owing to the mammoth 18 goals he has for the side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Scouring for goals as he looks to ease his way ahead of Ciro, Ronaldo will captain our side while Higuaín is the vice-captain.
