It was only Juve’s second loss this campaign this past Saturday. Manuel Locatelli tallied the lone goal at San Siro. Juve has dropped both Serie A games at San Siro, and won’t return there as it hosts both Milan sides later this season.
Striker Paulo Dybala, who is battling a thigh injury, will miss the match against Sampdoria. Mario Mandzukic figures to play heavy minutes with Dybala out and Juve likely resting, or playing a small number of minutes, Gonzalo Higuain ahead of this upcoming weekend’s clash against Napoli.
Sampdoria come to Turin on the heels of a 2-1 win over Genoa. It was Sampdoria’s first win since August. It’ll be a tough task for Sampdoria to grab another as Juve remains unbeaten at home this season.
