Juventus will be hoping to bag their first home win of the Serie A season when they welcome Sampdoria to the Allianz Stadium on Sunday.

Max Allegri's men have endured a nightmare start to the 2020/21 season, sitting in 12th place and a whopping 10 points adrift of Napoli at the top of the table. La Vecchia Signora only won their first league game of the season against Spezia in midweek, and were made to work for the three points, having gone 2-1 down at one point.

Federico Chiesa is set to be rested after a hefty shift on Wednesday night after returning from a hamstring injury.

Chiesa will join Wojciech Szczesny (who's been terrible this season), Paulo Dybala (who needs a rest) and Adrien Rabiot (who is generally just terrible) on the bench with a view to the huge Champions League clash with Chelsea.

Juventus vs Sampdoria prediction

At any other point over the last decade you'd have bet your house on Juventus winning this one - but maybe not now.

Sure, they may still have enough to beat Sampdoria this weekend but don't expect it to be a walk in the park. Samp have already taken points off better teams than Juve this season (Inter, if you're wondering), and could upset the apple cart once again on Sunday.

Prediction: Juventus 2-1 Sampdoria
