Juventus vs AS Roma - Competition: Italian Serie A
Juventus FC team enter the match with a perfect defensive record, having conceded zero goals in five league matches but the Bianconeri lost 1-0 their mid-week UCL to Atletico Madrid in a match where they once again showed their limits in Europe.
Andrea Pirlo could be back in contention, but he is highly unlikely to start while Andrea Barzagli, Romulo and Luca Marrone are out injured. Alvaro Morata and Martin Caceres are doubtful and will face late fitness tests before the game. Kwadwo Asamoah could come in for Patrice Evra on the left flank. The attacking duo will be Llorente-Tevez once again.
AS Roma have made a great start to both their Seria A (currently in 1st place) and UCL campaigns. They came away with a valuable point from Etihad Stadium as the Giallorossi drew 1-1 agains Man City after club legend Francesco Totti grabbed the equalizer after going down to an early Sergio Aguero penalty kick. The captain became the oldest goalscorer in Champions League history (38 years and 3 days) .
First choice keeper Morgan De Sanctis is a major doubt while De Rossi, Strootman, Astori, Castan, Balzaretti and Borriello continue to miss out. Juan Iturbe is fully fit and could compete with Alessandro Florenzi and Adem Ljajic for a starting spot. Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa will keep his place alongside Kostas Manolas in defence, while Seydou Keita will be given the holding role in midfield.
Juventus have won their last 21 home matches keeping a clean sheet in their last 8 games in Serie A. Furthermore, they have won five of the last seven meetings against AS Roma. The Bianconeri enjoyed a 3-0 triumph in the same fixture last term.
