Team News

  • Stroppa is thinking of matching Juventus' 3-5-2 formation by bringing Quintero back into the midfield line.
  • Abbruscato and Jonathas should be the two strikers, unless Weiss plays as trequartista in a 3-5-1-1.
  • As Pescara have only played a few matches at night, the manager undertook their last training session in the late afternoon on the stadium's pitch.
  • Pepe will be the only absentee in Pescara, since Vucinic resumed training with the group.
  • The international from Montenegro should also be part of the starting XI unless he fails a late fitness test.
  • Juve will have 6 days to rest for the first time in 7 matches after the clash in Pescara, so Conte could apply rotation or keep the typical XI despite their Champions League exertions.

Prediction

  • Pescara got back to winning ways last time out, after collecting just one point in the previous four games. A big team travelling to Pescara in an evening match could raise the atmosphere in the town, but Stroppa should only be concerned about getting one point in this one.
  • Juventus wiped away any criticism with the 4-0 victory against Nordjaelland in the Champions League, and even if this trip to Pescara may turn out to be a little tricky, their opponents are more than favourable to get back on track in the league.
  • The visitors may be a little tired, but winning by four goals always brings more energy. Pescara will probably try to sit and wait, matching Juventus' 3-man back line and reverting to a 5-man defence when needed. Juve will have to be patient to be able to find the back of the net.
