Picking the Best Potential Juventus Lineup to Face Sassuolo on Sunday

​Juventus face off against struggling Sassuolo away on Sunday as they look to pull away from Napoli and Inter Milan at the top of the table. 


After a heavy 3-0 defeat to Barcelona in the opening Champions League group stage they could add to their misery if they go into this match still licking their wounds from Tuesday night, but with some squad rotation they should bag an easy three points, here's their best potential lineup.

Goalkeeper

  • Buffon

​Although Juventus' legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon will be disappointed to suffer another loss to Barcelona his experience between the sticks is invaluable which will easily keep his place in the side throughout the season. 

Defence

  • Lichtsteiner

  • Rugani

  • Chiellini

  • Alex Sandro

As part of squad rotation the back four will see three changes as boss ​Massimiliano Allegri reverts back to his winning league formation. 


Alex Sandro will be the only player keeping his place at left-back meanwhile Mattia de Sciglio (injured), Andrea Barzagli and Medhi Benatia will be replaced by Stephan Lichtsteiner, Daniele Rugani and Giorgio Chiellini respectfully. 

Midfield

  • Pjanic

  • Matuidi

  • Cuadrado

  • Dybala

  • Mandzukic

​Miralem Pjanic and Blaise Matuidi will keep their holding midfield places with Sami Khedira and Claudio Marchisio both out injured the side has little room to change things up. 


However Rodrigo Bentancur and Douglas Costa will make way for Juan Cuadrado and Mario Mandžukić with Paulo Dybala continuing his role behind striker Higuain.

Forwards

  • Higuaín

​Gonzalo Higuaín will continue leading the attack despite a disappointing display against Barcelona. 


Having come back into the side in fine form after scoring two goals with an assist in just three league appearances his has continued his fine form from last season and this match will be a great opportunity to terrorise the Sassuolo backline and add to that tally.
