Missing Players and team news:
While both top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo and winger Federico Bernardeschi – who returned from a spell in quarantine with COVID-19 – were able to feature in midweek and will be involved again on Sunday, young forward Federico Chiesa is struggling to overcome a thigh problem and remains a serious doubt for Juventus. Defender Merih Demiral is also a concern for Andrea Pirlo, though all of his other central-defensive options are back fit following a continuous spell of absences in that department. Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata will continue their duel for the second striker’s spot, while Juan Cuadrado is favourite to deputise for Chiesa on the right of midfield. Meanwhile, Adrien Rabiot may replace Arthur in the centre after only featuring as a substitute against Parma. In addition to doing without January signing Aleksandr Kokorin – set to miss out again for Fiorentina with a thigh strain – and veteran midfielder Borja Valero (also thigh), Beppe Iachini must re-shuffle his engine room, as Giacomo Bonaventura serves a suspension. Despite his struggles in the second half of the campaign, Gaetano Castrovilli should come back into the midfield three as cover for Bonaventura, while main man Dusan Vlahovic should be supported by 38-year-old Franck Ribery up front, even if the elusive French forward has already started twice in the past week.
