KICK off: 27 February 21:45
Information: Despite his failings in front of goal, Kevin Lasagna is likely to feature again for Ivan Juric’s home side as experienced Croatian striker Nikola Kalinic remains an injury doubt. Midfielder Ebrima Colley will not return until April due to a knee problem, while Kevin Ruegg, Federico Ceccherini and Pawel Dawidowicz are all expected to be sidelined too. Key man Federico Dimarco returns from suspension for Verona though, so will come in for fellow defender Mert Cetin, who struggled against Genoa, while Miguel Veloso is fit to contend for a recall in central midfield. The deepening defensive emergency at Juventus continues, as mainstays Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci and Juan Cuadrado will miss out due to injury and full-back Danilo must serve a suspension. Therefore, teenage centre-back Radu Dragusin could be called upon by Andrea Pirlo to start alongside remaining options Merih Demiral, Matthijs de Ligt and Alex Sandro. Alternatively, Federico Chiesa and Gianluca Frabotta could be used as wing-backs in a 3-5-2. Wojciech Szczesny will return at Gianluigi Buffon’s expense in the Bianconeri goal, while Dejan Kulusevski should continue to support Cristiano Ronaldo up front, as Paulo Dybala remains injured and Alvaro Morata is suffering from an intestinal illness.
