JUV vs SAM Dream11 Match Prediction Juventus vs Sampdoria Serie A 21 September

JUV vs SAM Dream11 Prediction: Juventus will kick start the defence of their Serie A title with the home game against Sampdoria at Juventus Stadium on late Sunday night (IST). The game will also mark club legend Andrea Pirlo‘s first competitive game as Juve's head coach. The former AC Milan player takes over Maurizio Sarri who was sacked soon after Juve's exit from the Champions League at the hands of Lyon. It was no secret that Sarri, despite leading the Old Lady to their 9th straight league title, by the way, was always going to be judged by how his team performs in Europe. So no surprises there as Sarri was given the chop soon after Juve's premature end in the Champions League. And Pirlo will be under no illusion that, although Serie A remains one of the main targets, it's the big one that the club wants to win, and he must deliver.

Sampdoria, on the other hand, will hope to better last season's 15th-placed position. Despite close proximity with the relegation zone, Sampdoria were never in danger of getting down, with their poor finish to the season the main reason why they couldn't get into the top half.

GK: E Audero
DEF: Danilo, L Bonucci, L Pellegrini, T Augello
MID: A Ramsey, D Kulusevski, Cuadrado (VC), J Jankto, A Ekdal
FW: C Ronaldo (C)

Captain options

Cristiano Ronaldo: The five-time Ballon d'Or winner racked up 31 goals in Serie A last season with four more coming in the Champions League. Ronaldo remains ultra offensive on the pitch and is showing no signs of slowing down at the moment.
Games: 41 (last season)
Goals: 35
Assists: 05
Passing: 83%

Fabio Quagliarella: The 2018-19 Serie A golden boot winner was a bit inconsistent as he could manage only 11 goals. But he is Sampdoria's biggest hope on any day.
Games: 28(last season)
Goals: 11
Assists: 03
Passing: 68%

X-factors, differential picks

Juan Cuadrado: The former Chelsea man is now a proper wing-back. His creativity, though, remains a big part of his game and will be crucial for the team this season.
Games: 33 (last season)
Goals: 02
Assists: 05
Passing: 89%

Aaron Ramsey: Shone in bits and pieces. For a player of his calibre, the numbers he managed last season was a big disappointment. But it was also down to Sarri's conservative tactics that Ramsey often had to play deep in the midfield. He should enjoy more freedom this season.
Games: 30 (last season)
Goals: 04
Assists: 01
Passing: 89%
