    JUVENTUS XI

    Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo has made three changes to the team that beat Parma 4-0 last week.

    Wojciech Szczesny returns in goal as he replaces back-up goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.

    Juan Cuadrado takes Danilo's place at right-back whereas Federico Chiesa plays against the team that loaned him out to Juve.

    Chiesa takes Dejan Kulusevski's place, even though the Sweden international scored at Parma.

    It looks like we will see a 4-4-2 formation with Alex Sandro back to his left-back position along with Leonardo Bonucci and Matthijs de Ligt at centre-back.

    Ex-Arsenal star Aaron Ramseyplays in front of Sandro whereas Weston McKennie and Rodrigo Bentancur cover central midfield.

    And of course Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata lead the line in attack

    HEAD-TO-HEAD

    Juventus and Fiorentina have faced off a total of 162 times in Serie A ever since their creation in 1897 and 1926 respectively.

    Juve hold the lion's share of victories as they count 78 wins, compared to Viola's 33 in the Campionato.

    Fiorentina are facing a daunting task tonight as they haven't been able to beat the Bianconeri away in the Serie A ever since their 3-2 victory in 2008.

    However, that wasn't the very last time the visitors defeated Juventus away as they also prevailed five years ago in a Coppa Italia tie with a score of 2-1 thanks to a brace by current Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah.

    GOOD EVENING FROM TURIN

    Welcome to our live coverage of the Serie A clash between Juventus and Fiorentina at the Juventus Stadium.

    Juve will look to extend their undefeated run in the league against a struggling Viola but will have to do it with a number of key absences.

    Paulo Dybala could make the squad but is unlikely to return to the starting line-up due to a muscle strain he suffered during last Friday's training.

    Merih Demiral and Giorgio Chiellini are recovering from a muscle and thigh injury respectively but may not be risked by manager Andrea Pirlo.

    Arthur might miss out again due to a thigh knock he suffered against Atalanta last Wednesday therefore Adrien Rabiot or Rodrigo Bentancur are set to start in midfield alongside Weston McKennie and ex-Arsenal star Aaron Ramsey.

    Pirlo decided to start Juve legend Gianluigi Buffon in goal during last week's 4-0 triumph against Parma but it seems like former Gunners ace Wojciech Szczesny will be returning between the sticks against Fiorentina.

    Speaking of which, Viola manager Cesare Prandelli will have a near-full squad and is expected to retain his 3-5-1-1 formation against Juventus.

    Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic may start up front for the Viola with Bayern Munich legend Franck Ribery supporting him at No10.
