CAG vs SAS Dream11, Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Sassuolo assert their rejuvenated might after pulling off an incredible 3-3 draw against Juventus the last time around
They took on Juventus having won four matches in succession, results which stood the test of time as Sassuolo looked to prove their might against the league leaders. The encounter against Juventus was going to establish if the side was capable of challenging the stalwarts of Serie A and affirming that they resurrection in the showpiece league was truly on the right path.
And the 3-3 draw the club managed to pull off on the day saw them silence all their naysays, showing that this is a team here to stay. An incredible show of fight and character saw them refuse to give up, hitting hard at Juventus with eave after wave of attacks, to batter the top placed club and earn an extremely respected and well deserved draw from the contest.
The result also kept the 8th placed club in with a solid chance of making it into next season’s Europa League. While the club still sees a 6 point deficit refrain them from breaching the coveted spots, the club’s form is one which inspires confidence, a juggernaut capable of keeping its unbeaten spree intact.
Where Sassuolo have gone from strength to strength to fulfil their designs of making massive strides in the league, Cagliari on the other hand have completely lost their way in the league. This is a side on the downtick, a club which has been toyed around with and pummelled by teams, a plight well documented in its 3-0 defeat to Sampdoria the last time around.
Winless in their last five clashes, Cagliari make for an easy side to rip into shreds, a team which will go onto carry in its morose ways.

CAG vs SAS Dream11 Picks
At a time when Cagliari’s defence has cut a forlorn figure, a team which has been quashed by almost everyone they have come across, Alessio Cragno has managed to remain unfazed. The goal-keeper has grown in stature, a player who has risen in stature owing to the resilience he’s shown in the face of adversary.
Four matches on the spin have seen Cagliari fail to come up with a goal in the league. The side’s waning defence has gone onto regress with each passing gameweek, a torrid and lax attacking slot which has lost its way to lead to the side’s downward spiral in the competition.
It’s a discourse which sees us opt for the services for Sassuolo’s entire backline for the impending affair, a clash where the visiting team will have little qualms in quelling the home team from scoring. All of Mert Muldur, Vlad Chiriches, Gian Marco Ferrari and Georgios will be inculcated in our side, players who can further extend Cagliari’s attacking bereavements.
Jeremie Boga has been serenaded with laurels, a player for whom Sassuolo’s ardent supporters have crooned plaudits this season. It’s down to the inroads he’s made at the club in the ongoing edition of the league with the player having gone onto shown how treacherous a name he can be to defend against with his 11 goals.
He’s partnered up by Hamid Junior Traore while the home team will see us opt for the services of the diminutive and indomitable Marko Rog, a name whose ball handling abilities have seen him come up with some ravishing layups for his counterparts.
The 17 goals and 7 assists he has to his name this season have not only seen Francesco Caputo spearhead his side’s attacking slot but have seen him emerge as one of the most imperious names in the competition. Cagliari on the other hand see us indulge in the services of the guile filled and plucky Joao Pedro, someone whose 17 goals make him a travesty to square off against.
He’s joined up by Giovanni Simeone who has the 10 goals, two players who will hold the key towards their side’s chances of coming out unscathed from the faceoff.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His hand in a gargantuan 24 goals see us opt for Caputo as our side’s captain while Boga is the vice-captain.
