SAS Vs JUV Dream11 Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Title all but sealed for Juventus after managing to scamper their way to a tedious draw the last time around.
Their draw against Atalanta was undeserving, one which the club was extremely fortuitous to accrue what all Juventus will be interested about is the larger picture. The point they managed to salvage not only took them 9 points clear at the top of the table but also ended the slim chances Atalanta had of posing a threat to them this season.
While everything looks rosy for Juventus after that 2-2 draw, the picture painted of the club after the encounter is far from a pleasant one. The club was berated for its lacklustre brand of football with the side being taught a lesson in alluring attacking play by Atalanta across the full 90 minutes, a club which acted more like champions than Juventus on the night.
The performance encapsulated the story of Juventus’ season in a nutshell, a campaign where despite marching their way towards the prestigious trophy, the league leaders have failed to entice viewers. Their brand of football has bordered on despondent at times with the club struggling to piece together two meaningful attacking plays despite having such a well endowed bunch of players.
Clearly in a rut currently, Juventus are going to feel the tremors of this rampant Sassuolo side when the teams go at loggerheads. The side has doled out compelling performances across the last couple of weeks to embark on a four match winning spree, one which includes an extradonaire 2-1 win over Lazio the last time around.
This promises to be an edge of the seat thriller, one where the goals will fly by with Juventus just about managing to hang onto threads to come out with a scrappy win.

SAS Vs JUV Dream11 Picks
Juventus’ Wojciech Szczesny showed why he holds such importance in his side’s ambit. Up against a relentless Atalanta attacking contingent, the goal-keeper was required to rescue his side on a string of occasions, something he managed to do to keep Juventus in the tie right till the culminating stages.
Two of the league’s most exquisite attacks clashing heads against each other today means a cleansheet is far from going to be fathomed on the day. Defence will largely be in the backdrop with either side looking to keep the defensive side of the game lowkey and dwell on the attacking docket for a majority of the affair.
However, despite the rhetoric being shrouded in an attacking feast, we just can’t neglect Juventus’ defensive might this term. They have let in the least numbers of goals, a side which sees its pivotal names return to the backline after recovering from injuries.
Bolstered by the return of those players, we are going to be immersing ourselves in a duo from the visiting team with both of their CBs, Leonardo Bonucci and Matthijs de Ligt being snagged by us. Elsewhere, its just the singular name for us from Sassuolo with us indulging in the services of the tenacious Marlon Santos whose ability to getting his side’s out of soups make him pristine value at a measly 8 credits.
When Sassuolo had gone in for Jeremie Boga and decided to rope in his services, the club knew they were getting a real world beater. However, perhaps even the club would have understated his talent with the player showing for the first time why he was so highly coveted with a staggering 11 goals this season.
He’s joined up by Mehdi Bourabia while Juventus on the other hand will also see us earmark a partnership from the side for the imminent clash. Its one made up of Rodrigo Bentacur who has the 6 assists this season and Miralem Pjanic, two players without whom Sarri’s designs of running the midfield would have come crashing down.
Scoring both of the penalties he got the last time around, Cristiano Ronaldo was able to help rescue an unlikely point for Juventus on the day. He’s converted all the 11 kicks he’s gotten from the spot to make him a must have selection for us alongside Paolo Dybala who has registered the 11 goals for the club.
Elsewhere, his gargantuan 16 goals and 6 assists are more than enough to justify our pick from Sassuolo with their striker Francesco Caputo being indispensable for the upcoming scrimmage.
Captain And Vice-Captain
28 goals for Ronaldo this season will see him being handed over the captain responsibility while Dybala is the vice-captain.
