Team News: Juventus
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) won’t be able to feature for Juventus gaffer Maurizio Sarri.
We are thinking that Juve will possibly employ a 4-3-3 formation this time, utilising Wojciech Szczesny, Alex Sandro, Daniele Rugani, Matthijs de Ligt, Danilo, Aaron Ramsey, Rodrigo Bentancur, Adrien Rabiot, Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala and Federico Bernardeschi.
Team News: Sampdoria
Sampdoria manager Claudio Ranieri has a number of players out of action. Felice D'Amico (Foot Injury) and Alex Ferrari (Fitness) miss out here. The players who will not be able to play in this game through being suspended are Ronaldo Vieira and Omar Colley.
There’s a good chance that i Blucerchiati will likely play in a 4-4-2 lineup, starting the game with Emil Audero, Bartosz Bereszynski, Maya Yoshida, Julian Chabot, Tommaso Augello, Karol Linetty, Gaston Ramirez, Morten Thorsby, Jakub Jankto, Federico Bonazzoli and Manolo Gabbiadini.
It seems to us that Sampdoria will need to be at their best to get a goal against a Juventus team who will likely set up a big win.
We are anticipating a 3-0 victory for Juventus at the end of the game.
