📰 Team News: Empoli
Koni De Winter (Sideband injury), Martín Satriano (Unknown Injury), Sebastian Walukiewicz (Unknown Injury), Petar Stojanovic (Unknown Injury) and Razvan Marin (Muscle Injury) are unavailable for Empoli manager Paolo Zanetti.
It’s our opinion that Azzurri should opt for a 4-2-3-1 system for this one, handing starts to Guglielmo Vicario, Tyronne Ebuehi, Ardian Ismajili, Sebastiano Luperto, Fabiano Parisi, Alberto Grassi, Jacopo Fazzini, Marko Pjaca, Liam Henderson, Nicolo Cambiaghi and Francesco Caputo.
ℹ️ Team News: Juventus
Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has some current player fitness concerns. Kaio Jorge (Fitness), Mattia De Sciglio (Cruciate Ligament Injury), Leonardo Bonucci (Tear in the abductor muscle), Paul Pogba (Hamstring Injury) and Nicolò Fagioli (Collarbone fracture) will miss out on this game. The suspended players who are serving a ban for this game are Juan Cuadrado and Danilo.
We reckon that Juve could decide to play in a 3-5-2 system, going with Wojciech Szczesny, Federico Gatti, Gleison Bremer, Daniele Rugani, Tommaso Barbieri, Fabio Miretti, Leandro Paredes, Adrien Rabiot, Filip Kostic, Arkadiusz Milik and Dusan Vlahovic.
Our feeling is that Empoli will need things to go their way to score goals against this Juventus outfit who we think might score at least once to put them ahead.
We’re therefore predicting a hard-fought 0-1 win for Juventus at full-time.
Looking forward to this.
