How Juventus could line up against Roma

Ahead of Sunday's Serie A encounter between Roma and Juventus, Sports Mole looks at how the visitors could line up at Stadio Olimpico.

Juventus take on Roma at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday evening looking to extend their winning run in Serie A to four matches.

Since losing out to Lazio at the beginning of December, the Italian champions have registered victories over Udinese, Sampdoria and Cagliari Calcio respectively.

That run of results has led to Maurizio Sarri's side moving level on points with league leaders Inter Milan, with a six-point gap to third-placed Lazio.

Here, Sports Mole predicts how Juventus may line up for the trip to the capital.

Out: Giorgio Chiellini (knee), Sami Khedira (knee), Rodrigo Bentancur (suspension)

Despite consistently making changes to his starting lineup this season, Sarri may opt to keep alterations to a minimum for a game of this magnitude.

That would likely see the former Chelsea boss persist with a diamond formation, with Aaron Ramsey playing ahead of the trio of Adrien Rabiot, Miralem Pjanic and Blaise Matuidi.

However, after coming off the bench to net against Cagliari, Gonzalo Higuain may get the nod over Paulo Dybala to partner Cristiano Ronaldo in attack.

With a clean sheet being recorded in that match, Sarri is likely to keep faith with the same back four, leaving the likes of Danilo and Matthijs de Ligt on the substitutes' bench.

Juventus will be without Rodrigo Bentacur as he continues to serve a domestic suspension, while Giorgio Chiellini and Sami Khedira remain sidelined with serious knee injuries.
