How Juventus could line up against Atalanta BC

Sports Mole looks at how Juventus could line up in Saturday's Serie A clash with Atalanta BC.

Juventus will be looking to bounce back from Tuesday's 4-2 defeat at AC Milan when they continue their 2019-20 Serie A campaign at home to Atalanta BC on Saturday night.

The Old Lady led 2-0 at San Siro before conceding four times in the final 30 minutes, but they still have a healthy advantage at the summit, sitting seven points clear of second-placed Lazio.

Atalanta in third are nine points off Juve, but Gian Piero Gasperini's side have won their last nine in Serie A and will therefore be full of confidence entering this weekend's intriguing contest.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how the Italian champions could line up on home soil.


Out: Mattia De Sciglio (thigh), Sami Khedira (tendon), Merih Demiral (knee)

Juve were without the services of both Paulo Dybala and Matthijs de Ligt against Milan through suspension, but the pair are available this weekend and should return to the starting XI.

Daniele Rugani and Gonzalo Higuain are likely to be the two players to miss out, while Danilo could also drop out of the starting side as Alex Sandro made his return from a knee injury off the bench at San Siro.

Maurizio Sarri is expected to resist the temptation to make wholesale changes, though, with Adrien Rabiot again set to be preferred to Blaise Matuidi and Aaron Ramsey in midfield.

Douglas Costa for Federico Bernardeschi is a change that could occur in a forward area, although it seems probable that the latter will again get the nod alongside Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Sami Khedira, Mattia De Sciglio and Merih Demiral remain on the sidelines for the Old Lady, but veteran centre-back Giorgio Chiellini was among the substitutes against Milan after proving his fitness.
