JUVENTUS VS ATALANTA TEAM NEWS
Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo could grant a rare rest to versatile Brazilian Alex Sandro on Wednesday, with countryman Danilo returning to a four-man defence alongside Juan Cuadrado and Leonardo Bonucci, while veterans Giorgio Chiellini and Merih Demiral are still sidelined.
Another Selecao star, Arthur – rested at the weekend – should return in midfield, with Dejan Kulusevski and Aaron Ramsey likely to start too, after being named among the substitutes against Genoa.
Alvaro Morata is expected to form the front pairing with Cristiano Ronaldo, while Paulo Dybala returns to the bench.
Juventus Predicted XI: Szczesny; Cuadrado, De Ligt, Bonucci, Danilo; Kulusevski, Arthur, Rabiot, Ramsey; Morata, Ronaldo
Against Fiorentina on Sunday, Atalanta’s Josip Ilicic, Mario Pasalic, Mattia Caldara and Aleksei Miranchuk were all out of action, while playmaker Papu Gomez was dropped due to an ongoing dispute with boss Gian Piero Gasperini.
If fit, Gasperini is expected to bring Ilicic back in as Duvan Zapata’s attacking partner in a 3-5-2, while the future of Gomez remains uncertain so Ruslan Malinovskyi can keep a spot in the first XI.
Atalanta Predicted XI: Gollini; Toloi, Djimsiti, Romero; Hateboer, De Roon, Freuler, Gosens; Malinovskyi; Ilicic, Zapata
