The Serie A leaders made the trip without injured Federico Bernardeschi, Giorgio Chiellini, Sami Khedira, Merih Demiral and Danilo.

Maurizio Sarri opts for a 4-3-3 formation with Douglas Costa, Higuain and Ronaldo, as CR7 is seeking a club record 10thconsecutive Serie A match on target.

The Portuguese legend celebrated his 35thbirthday on Wednesday, yet has scored 40 goals in his first 50 Serie A games, also providing 10 assists.

It’s Paulo Dybala who makes way this time and takes his place on the bench.

Verona are a tough team to break down, as seen by their midweek rescheduled Week 17 trip to Lazio, which ended 0-0.

Ivan Juric’s men might be newly-promoted to Serie A, but they are comfortably mid-table and could even challenge for European places.

They are unbeaten in seven rounds and have midfielder Sofyan Amrabat back in the XI after suspension, with only Eddie Salcedo and Emmanuel Badu missing.

The False 9 approach is working well lately, but Borini is chosen as the striker, supported by Mattia Zaccagni and Matteo Pessina.

Verona have beaten Juventus only once since April 2000, a 2-1 result at the Bentegodi in May 2016, along with three draws (all of them 2-2 at home) and 11 defeats.
