How Juventus could line up against Genoa

Sports Mole looks at how Italian champions Juventus could line up in Saturday's Serie A clash with Genoa.

Juventus will look to continue their perfect start to the 2018-19 Serie A campaign when they welcome Genoa this weekend.

The Italian champions have not missed a step in the early stages of this season, winning each of their eight matches to collect 24 points.

Second-placed Napoli are already six points off the pace being set by serial winners Juventus, but they face a potentially tricky match against a Genoa side that has four Serie A victories to their name this season.

That said, the last team to prevent Juventus from winning a Serie A match on home soil was Napoli back in April, and the Old Lady are the overwhelming favourites to record yet another win this weekend.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Juventus could line up against Genoa.


Possible JUV XI vs. GEN

Out: Leonardo Spinazzola (knee)
Doubtful: Douglas Costa (ankle/thigh), Paulo Dybala (knee)

Leonardo Spinazzola and Douglas Costa will again be absent for Juventus, while head coach Massimiliano Allegri will have to make a late call on Paulo Dybala, who suffered a knee problem while representing Argentina against Brazil earlier this week.

Dybala has not officially been ruled out of the clash with Genoa, however, and there are suggestions that the forward will feature.

The champions are expected to once again line up in a 4-3-3 formation, with Joao Cancelo and Alex Sandro operating in the two full-back positions.

Further forward, Rodrigo Bentancur was on the scoresheet against Udinese and should keep his spot, with Blaise Matuidi and Miralem Pjanic also starting in the middle of the park.

Cristiano Ronaldo has four goals and five assists in eight Serie A appearances this season and will once again by joined by Mario Mandzukic in the final third, with Federico Bernardeschi an option from the bench.
