Antonio Conte will be back on Juventus' bench after serving his long-discussed ban following the betting scandal.
Giovinco is suspended and will not travel to Palermo. Matri and Quagliarella are in competition to take his place.
Chellini may sit this one out, with Caceres playing as centre-back instead.
Palermo's only loss at home this season was followed by 12 points in the following 6 matches played at La Barbera. Gasperini is struggling to obtain points away from home, but here the Rosanero will benefit from the support of their fans.
Juventus are in the last phase of a difficult period in their fixture list between November and the start of December, and they only need to survive in Palermo after the Champions League qualification to prove that they are completely out of the woods.
The visitors will also have a psychological boost by having their coach back on the bench. Therefore, expect the Bianconeri to push from the start and press as they always have under Conte's management. Palermo are likely to sit, defend tight and try to counter-attack, with Miccoli always keen to score against his former team.
