Team News: Cagliari
Luca Pellegrini (Bruised Ankle), Radja Nainggolan (Calf Injury), Christian Oliva (Distortion of the ankle) and Leonardo Pavoletti (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) will not be able to play for Cagliari gaffer Walter Zenga. Nahitan Nández is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
We are thinking that Casteddu / Rossoblu look set to use a 4-3-1-2 system for the game, handing starts to Alessio Cragno, Charalampos Lykogiannis, Ragnar Klavan, Luca Ceppitelli, Fabio Pisacane, Artur Ionita, Riccardo Ladinetti, Valter Birsa, Daniele Ragatzu, Giovanni Pablo Simeone and João Pedro Geraldino.
Team News: Juventus
Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri has to choose a team with limited availability. Mattia De Sciglio (Biceps femoris muscle injury), Douglas Costa (Tear in the abductor muscle), Giorgio Chiellini (Calf Problems) and Sami Khedira (Tear in the abductor muscle) are names that won’t be on the team sheet. Adrien Rabiot is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
There’s a good chance that Juve appear most likely to begin the game with a 4-3-3 lineup with a starting lineup of Wojciech Szczesny, Danilo, Daniele Rugani, Leonardo Bonucci, Alex Sandro, Blaise Matuidi, Miralem Pjanic, Aaron Ramsey, Juan Cuadrado, Gonzalo Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo.
In this game, Cagliari are likely to put a goal past this Juventus outfit, but one goal might not quite prevent defeat.
We’re going for a 1-2 winning margin for Juventus at full-time. There looks to be little in this one.
