Cagliari vs Juventus in Serie A: Head to Head Statistics, LIVE Streaming Link, teams stats up, results, Date, Time, Watch Live, Points Table
In a week when they crashed out of the Champions League, under-performing Juventus must immediately bounce back at relegation battlers Cagliari on Sunday, if they wish to retain any faint hope of retaining the Scudetto this season.
It may not be a straightforward task either, as their Sardinian hosts have won two of their first three games with new manager Leonardo Semplici at the helm and are in need of points to keep their heads above water in the fight for Serie A survival.
Drawing stinging criticism from across the Italian sports media and such luminaries as esteemed tactical masterminds Arrigo Sacchi and Fabio Capello, Juventus not only went out of Europe on away goals to Porto in midweek but also failed to capitalize on Mehdi Taremi’s dismissal.
Recently installed head coach Leonardo Semplici has had an instant impact on the team’s fortunes since replacing Eusebio Di Francesco last month and has even described his excellent start to life in the Cagliari dugout as “unthinkable”.
Midfield mainstay Rodrigo Bentancur remains out of commission for Juventus, as he observes COVID-19 quarantine protocols following a positive test last week, while forward Paulo Dybala is not expected to make his return from injury until later this month.
If they do play a variation of 3-5-2, then Juan Cuadrado and Federico Bernardeschi would be favorites to start at wing-back, with Weston McKennie coming into a midfield three.
Cagliari vs Juventus Head-to-Head
Juventus’ last trip to Sardinia turned out to be historic as Cagliari beat them for the first time in 11 years, winning 2-0. Juventus have won eight out of the 10 most recent games, with the sole draw coming in the 2014-15 season.
The two teams last met in November, with the Bianconeri running out comfortable 2-0 winners thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo brace.
