Next Match: at home to Sassuolo, December 15
Europe: UEFA Champions League (Group B)
Juventus host Sassuolo on Sunday afternoon looking to put behind them their painful midweek exit from the Champions League. The Bianconeri were minutes away from qualifying for the knockout round of the competition when a late goal from Wesley Sneijder handed Galatasaray a 1-0 triumph in Istanbul on Wednesday and a place in the next round. Juve, meanwhile, will have to settle for Europa League football in the new year. "We have to dive back into Serie A and this disappointment has to spur us on domestically," Juve coach Antonio Conte said. "We have another two games before the Christmas break and only then will we start to think about the Europa League." Juve have won their last seven league games and lie three points clear of Roma at the top of Serie A.
