How Juventus could line up against Parma

Sports Mole looks at how Juventus could line up in this weekend's Serie A clash with Parma.

Juventus will be looking to bounce back from Wednesday's shock 3-0 defeat to Atalanta BC in the Coppa Italia when they host Parma in Serie A on Saturday night.

Juve have not failed to win the Coppa Italia since the 2013-14 campaign, but there will be a new name on the trophy this season following the Old Lady's quarter-final defeat earlier this week.

Massimiliano Allegri's side are 11 points clear of second-placed Napoli at the top of Serie A, however, having won 19 and drawn two of their 21 league fixtures during the 2018-19 campaign.

The Italian champions recorded a 2-1 win at Lazio last weekend, while Parma, who occupy 12th position in the table, suffered a 3-2 home defeat to SPAL last time out.

Here, Sports Mole takes a look at how Juventus could line up this weekend on their return to league action.

Juventus have serious problems in defence ahead of Saturday's fixture, with Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci and Andrea Barzagli all expected to miss out for the Italian champions.

Mehdi Benatia has left the club for Qatar, meanwhile, meaning that new signing from Lazio, Martin Caceres, is expected to be thrown straight in alongside Daniele Rugani in central defence.

Juan Cuadrado is also still on the sidelines with a knee problem, but Mario Mandzukic is back in training following a thigh problem and could make the bench this weekend.

Emre Can, Douglas Costa and Joao Cancelo all started the defeat to Atalanta on the bench but are expected to return to the starting XI for this match.

Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala will both feature in the final third of the field.
