As they try to win a second consecutive Serie A victory, Juventus will be in good spirits and face Cagliari.
Although they aren’t at their best, the Italian giants Juventus have been able to score results in Serie A recently. When they face Cagliari, the Bianconeri will look to extend their unbeaten streak in the league to five.
Although the Juventus was not at their best against Bologna, they were able to defeat the I Rossoblu. Juve is now just six points behind the top four, with AC Milan and Atalanta both losing points. If they get a good midweek result, they could close the gap to three points.
Allegri will need to deal with injuries to key players to trim Cagliari down. The visitors have had a difficult season. They won only one Serie A match all season. They are now 19th, just three points away from safety.
The Bianconeri have not been able to compete against top European and national teams. They have shown enough skill to overcome minor opposition, even though they have not quite found their style. This was their second chance to maintain that form.
Juventus has had a tough year, losing their Scudetto winner Cristiano Ronaldo and their best player. The second term of Allegri didn’t go according to plan, and the Bianconeri have a long road ahead of them in terms of rebuilding. They would end the 2021 campaign with a victory on that night.
News and tactics for the team
Allegri is currently dealing with several injuries and will need to again assemble a team that can finish at home. Danilo and Federico Chiesa, Paulo Dybala, Danilo, and Aaron Ramsey will not be available for the game.
Dejan Kruszewski will be back this weekend, but Manuel Locatelli, who has contracted a stomach bug, is doubtful about this game. Allegri will have to make a crucial decision. Federico Bernandeschi, Alvaro Morata, and others stepped up at the weekend. More was to be expected.
Wojciech Szczesny is a solid starting goalkeeper. Leonardo Bonucci, Matthias De Ligt and Matthias De Ligt form the backbone of the defense. Alex Sandro appears set to take over for the injured Pellegrini as left-back. Bernandeschi will be accompanied by Juan Cuadrado, the steady Juan Cuadrado. He will continue to play on the opposite side. Allegri’s key player is Colombian because of his intelligence and ability to accurately pass the ball.
Rodrigo Betancourt, Weston McKennie, and Adrien Rabiot could all be back in the starting lineup with Locatelli doubtful. This trio’s performance could impact the effectiveness of the attack. Alvaro Morata appears to be leading the line with Bernardeschi, Moise Keane occupying the flank positions.
Possible lineups (4-3-3). Szczesny; Cuadrado, De Ligt, Bonucci, Sandro; McKennie, Bentancur, Rabiot; Bernardeschi, Morata, Kean
Cagliari was also missing several well-known names. Kevin Strootman and Sebastian Valukevic were all hurt. Razvan Marin, who was red-carded in Udinese’s loss, will be suspended tonight.
Given his side’s current form and the absence of options in midfield, Walter Mazzarri has a tough task ahead. It may be difficult for Mazzarri to choose but to give Cristian Oliva an unusual start alongside Alessandro Diola. If Nahitan Nandez is not allowed to leave the Sardinian Arena, it will make matters worse.
To outnumber Juventus midfield, the Isolani will be using their 3-5-2 formation to begin the game. Cagliari is more likely to complete their system with three backs, despite the absences of Federico Chiesa and Paulo Dybala.
Alessio Cranio, Andrea Carboni, and Giorgio Altare will be the match’s first players. Raoul Bellanova and Dalbert Enrique will provide defense width and double back support. They could be the difference between their performances against Sandro or Cuadrado.
It could be Alessandro Diola, Nahitan Naandez, and Alberto Grassi in midfield. Joao Pedro and Keita Balde look set to lead the attack and cause problems for Juventus’ defense. It remains to be seen if they can do so.
Line-ups possible (3-5-2). Cragno; Carboni, Godin, Caceres; Dalbert, Nandez, Grassi, Deiola, Bellanova; Balde, Pedro
The key stats
We can see that Juventus has won five games while Cagliari has won one. There have also been zero draws.
The sides scored 18 goals in those matches. 14 were Juve’s, and four were created by Castaldo/Rossobro. This meant that there was an average of 3.
The last league match between these two clubs took place on 14 March 2021 in the 27th Serie A match. The score was 1-3 Juventus for Cagliari.
Cagliari had half the possession, 12 goals, and 4 shots on target in that match. Giovanni Simeone (61′) was their only scorer.
Juventus scored 10 goals, six of them on target. Cristiano Ronaldo (10’, 25’, 32’) was the goal scorer.
The Spaniard was a good player against Bologna and led the team to a great performance. This was far from the expected performance of the inconsistent striker who was often split between Mr. Hyde and Dr. Jekyll. His performance earned his side the win and gave him more opportunities to get on the pitch.
Morata was responsible for scoring for the Bianconeri in the absence of Federico Chiesa and Paulo Dybala. Morata now has an excellent opportunity to complete the year. Cagliari is not the strongest team and Morata could increase his goal count. Morata would feel more positive going into 2022 if he did so. Morata could be a productive striker with Cuadrado’s ability to pass the ball around freely.
