How Juventus could line up against Sassuolo

Sports Mole looks at how Juventus could line up for Wednesday's Serie A encounter at Sassuolo.

Juventus head into Wednesday's encounter against Sassuolo with the opportunity to strengthen their grip on top spot in the Serie A standings.

Although the league leaders only recorded a 2-2 draw with Atalanta BC at the weekend, the result ensured that they remained with an eight-point advantage.

However, on the back of two games without success, Maurizio Sarri will be eager to return to winning ways with just half a dozen matches remaining.

Here, Sports Mole predicts how Juve could line up for the game at the Mapei Stadium.

Out: Juan Cuadrado (suspension), Mattia De Sciglio (thigh), Sami Khedira (thigh), Merih Demiral (lack of match fitness)

With Juan Cuadrado serving a one-match ban, Sarri will almost certainly switch Danilo to right-back, allowing Alex Sandro to return on the opposite side of the defence.

There could also be an alteration further forward with Douglas Costa in line to take the spot of Federico Bernardeschi on the right wing.

However, despite the energy levels of his squad also being a factor, Sarri is unlikely to be tempted into making widespread changes.

His other main decision could come in midfield after Barcelona-bound Miralem Pjanic remained as an unused substitute on Saturday night.

Already well stocked for options in the centre of the pitch, Sarri may prefer to hand game time to players expected to still be in Turin next season.

Nevertheless, Aaron Ramsey could have to make do with another outing off the substitutes' bench, like he has done since the resumption.
