Juventus

With an important Champions League fixture against Tottenham in the midweek, Juventus wouldn’t be risking the likes of Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala. Although Dybala might make a second-half appearance. Mario Mandzukic would be occupying the center forward role as in the game against Atlanta in the Coppa Italia semi-final, where he looked a bit mediocre in the center forward role. Federico Bernardeschi is expected to miss this fixture after being forced off in the game against Torino so the likes of Pjanic, Matuidi & Marchisio will be taking control of the midfield.

Juventus will be the favorites heading into this game, although since both the sides are coming off midweek fixtures so neither of them will have an upper hand as far as fitness is concerned. With hosts having four straight losses against Juventus at Stadio Olimpico, Juventus would be looking to take home a win and get close to the league leaders Napoli.
