JUV vs SAM Dream11 Prediction: Italian giants Juventus will be looking to continue with where they left last season when they meet Sampdoria at their Allianz Stadium on Sunday night. Despite winning Serie A for the ninth season in succession last term, 2019-20 was seen as something of a disappointment for Juventus as they finished with their lowest points tally since 2010-11 and failed win any other silverware. That promoted a change in Turin with club legend Andrea Pirlo now in control of the reigns following the dismissal of Maurizio Sarri and morale is bound to be high following Pirlo’s appointment. Juventus talisman Cristiano Ronaldo has scored in all three of his matches against Sampdoria and he fan be fancied to fire his side to victory in this opening weekend fixture. On the other hand, Sampdoria are aiming to secure another year in Serie A and perhaps build on the few positives that were visible after Claudio Ranieri took over as head coach during the previous season.
