Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Juventus could line up for Sunday's Serie A clash with AC Milan.

Having finally been deposed as Serie A champions last weekend, following bitter rivals Inter's confirmation as Scudetto winners, Juventus seek to avoid missing out on Champions League qualification with a win over ailing AC Milan.

Andrea Pirlo's team welcome their Rossoneri counterparts to the Allianz Stadium free of major injury concerns, so the distinct possibility remains that the rookie coach will continue his often ineffective policy of rotation, having used 34 different lineups during his debut season in the dugout.

With both personnel and formation being tinkered with on a game-by-game basis, Pirlo is likely to indulge in some more changes on Sunday, as Italy forward Federico Chiesa has overcome a thigh problem to be passed fit to feature - after narrowly missing out against Udinese last week. The on-loan wide man has impressed throughout a difficult campaign for his new club, particularly when netting a brace in the reverse fixture earlier this year.

Juventus received further positive news from the treatment table earlier this week, as centre-back Merih Demiral should be cleared to return to the bench, as the Turkey international has now overcome his thigh injury.

Nonetheless, it is his vastly experienced defensive colleague Giorgio Chiellini that is more likely to break into the team that won 2-1 in Udine last time out, as the 36-year-old is valued for his nous and know-how in the biggest games.

Pirlo is also expected to make two more tweaks to the lineup, bringing Adrien Rabiot back into the starting XI at Weston McKennie's expense, while Alvaro Morata may replace Paulo Dybala - who has looked ill at ease since his return from a series of layoffs - in support of Capocannoniere-leading frontman Cristiano Ronaldo; scorer of two late goals to seal a vital win last weekend.

Juventus possible starting lineup: Szczesny; Danilo, De Ligt, Chiellini, Sandro; Cuadrado, Bentancur, Rabiot, Chiesa; Morata, Ronaldo
