Sports Mole previews Sunday's Serie A clash between Juventus and Palermo.

Juventus will wrap up the Scudetto for the second year running if they secure at least a draw against Palermo in Serie A on Sunday afternoon.

They will be confident of doing so against a struggling Palermo side, who sit outside the relegation zone on goal difference.

A win for Palermo would give them a huge boost in their battle to stay up after a turbulent season both on and off the field. They will be encouraged by their 1-0 victory over Inter Milan last Sunday, which moved them out of the bottom three.

Juventus have won their last seven matches in the league, including last weekend's 2-0 victory over local rivals Torino in the Turin derby.

The win moved them 11 points clear at the top of the Serie A table with 12 left to play for.

For Juventus, Nicolas Anelka may return while Sebastian Giovinco should be fit to play. Mauricio Isla is doubtful due to a muscle problem.

Andrea Dossena will return for the visitors after serving his one-match suspension. The game may come too soon for Andrea Mantovani, who is close to a return after injury.
