The doubts at Juventus concern the presence of one between Higuain and Mandzukic in attack together with Dybala and the option Douglas Costa or Bernardeschi both in a possible 4-3-3 and as a right wing in 4-4-2. The returning Pjanic could be preserved for the championship, as confirmed by the boss Massimiliano Allegri in a press conference. Gianluigi Buffon, Benedikt Höwedes, Juan Cuadrado and Mattia De Sciglio will be out and probably only the last one will be available next saturbay in Cagliari. In midfield, Claudio Marchisio o play ahead of Sami Khedira, while Daniele Rugani should play as centre-back. Sinisa Mihajlovic will be without an 'important' number of players and the most notable absentee being Andrea Belotti. Tests have eased fears that the striker may be sidelined for some time, but he will still be out for this game and Niang could replace the National team striker. While the midfield has been spared from injuries, Torino also have problems in defence, where three players are out: Cristian Ansaldi, Lyanco and Antonio Barreca.
