Coach Conte is going to make a lot of changes in the midfield, with only Marchisio likely to be kept from the starting XI against Chievo.
Barzagli is set to play as well, and one of Lucio and Chiellini may have to sit on the bench.
Quagliarella's form suggests that Conte may drop Vucinic from the start and field Giovinco instead.
Fiorentina threw away two points in Parma, as well as the chance of going into the big clash against Juve with morale flying high. However, Montella's project is looking good as the team are playing good football and obtaining encouraging results.
Juventus haven't dropped any points so far in the league and grabbed a draw at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League. The Bianconeri may be happy to settle for a point here, to continue their unbeaten streak without wasting too much energy.
After the hard lesson Fiorentina were given last season by Juve, losing 0-5, the mood will be pretty heated as the new team looks capable of battling with Juventus. The rivalry between the fans is the most fierce after the two derbies (with Torino and Bologna), and both teams like to keep control of the match. The sum of these ingredients should produce a tactical and physical match at the same time. Look for underdogs amongst the scorers, as the usual suspects will be well guarded.
