    The Juventus squad are rewarded for their record-breaking 4-1 win against Cagliari with a day of rest ahead of returning to Vinovo tomorrow

    Yesterday’s 4-1 success away at Cagliari – a record-breaking 11th Serie A win in a row – capped off the first half of the season in style, and with no midweek match to contend with, Antonio Conte has seen today as the opportune moment to allow his men a day of recuperation.

    A team with title aspirations must make sure to maintain momentum, though, so the Bianconeri will be back to work in Vinovo tomorrow to begin preparations for their next test on Saturday evening.

    With Juve having now played all of the teams in Serie A, the fixture list returns to the start. That means it’s opening-day opponents Sampdoria that await the Bianconeri, though this time the Blucerchiati will be making the trip to Juventus Stadium.

    The Stadio Luigi Ferraris was the venue when Conte’s men last faced Sampdoria on 24 August, Carlos Tevez ensuring the visitors took home all three points in the driving rain with a debut goal tapped in from a Paul Pogba assist.

    Now the Blucerchiati find themselves 15th in Serie A, and the fact that their proximity to the relegation zone will no doubt give them extra desire for revenge means the Bianconeri will need to be well prepared.
