Game Details

Cesena coach Domenico Di Carlo has faith in his beleaguered side ahead of Saturday's clash at Sassuolo, despite their precarious position in the Serie A table.

Di Carlo's side lie 19th in the standings, five points adrift of safety, heading into their final game of the year.

Cagliari do themselves no favours as Juve strike early for win

One thing that has been evident about Juventus in recent weeks is the determination they have shown at the start of each game. Despite playing every three days and perhaps exhausted from the packed schedule and little rotation, each game has seen the Old Lady attempt to finish off the opponent...
