Ahead of the game between Juventus and Torino on Friday night, Sports Mole looks at how Massimiliano Allegri’s side could line up in the Serie A clash.
Juventus head into Friday’s Serie A encounter with Torino looking to move closer to reaching 100 points in the standings by the end of the season.
Massimiliano Allegri has watched his side come from behind to take four points from Fiorentina and Inter Milan, and a 100% record over the closing four games will be enough to achieve three figures for the first time since the 2013-14 campaign.
However, Allegri continues to contend with a growing injury list, and it has left the Italian with a dilemma over his formation for this derby showdown.
Below, Sports Mole predicts what starting lineup could be named by Allegri when Torino make the five-mile trip to Juventus’ home ground.
Out: Mario Mandzukic (knee), Mattia Perin (shoulder), Martin Caceres (muscle), Sami Khedira (knee), Douglas Costa (hamstring), Paulo Dybala (knock), Alex Sandro (thigh)
Alex Sandro is the latest to have joined the treatment room due to a thigh injury, and it will almost certainly keep the left-back out of the squad.
Leonardo Spinazzola could be handed a spot in the starting lineup as his replacement, but Allegri must decide whether to use the Italian as a full-back or wing-back.
Emre Can may drop back to form a back three, although the Germany international is perhaps more likely to play in midfield alongside Miralem Pjanic and Blaise Matuidi.
Moise Kean is an option to come into the front three, but Allegri may stick with Federico Bernardeschi, Juan Cuadrado and Cristiano Ronaldo.
