Probable line-ups: Verona vs Juventus

Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri is expected to retain the majority, if not all, of the same starting XI that won against Fiorentina last weekend.

Sarri returned to his favourite 4-3-3 formation with the return of Douglas Costa to full fitness, and it is expected that Sarri will continue in the same vein.

Juan Cuadrado should remain at right-back, with Alex Sandro on the opposite side.

Leonardo Bonucci and Matthijs de Ligt are expected to start in central defence.

The midfield trio is expected to be Rodrigo Bentancur, Miralem Pjanic and Adrien Rabiot.

The only change is expected in the front three.

Paulo Dybala could start ahead of Gonzalo Higuain, whilst Douglas Costa and Cristiano Ronaldo are expected to start for the Bianconeri.

For Verona meanwhile, is it thought that there won’t be many changes from the 0-0 draw against Lazio during the week.

Sofyan Amrabat is slated to return following his one-game ban following his dismissal against Milan last Sunday.

The midfielder is expected to resume his tandem with Miguel Veloso.

Fabio Borini is pushing for a start following making his full debut against the Rossoneri last week.

Samuel Di Carmine is also hoping to start, but may find himself on the bench, with Valerio Verre believed to be the preferred choice.

Probable line-ups:

Verona (3-4-2-1): Silvestri;Rrahmani, Gunter, Kumbulla; Faraoni, Amrabat, Veloso, Lazovic; Pessina, Zaccagni; Verre

Juventus (4-3-3): Szczesny; Cuadrado, De Ligt, Bonucci, Alex Sandro; Bentancur, Pjanic, Rabiot; Douglas Costa, Dybala, Cristiano Ronaldo.
