Team News

  • Pirlo is still out, but Pogba's performance last week suggests that the Frenchman will cover for him.
  • Questioned about the chance of switching to 4-3-3, manager Antonio Conte replied that he will not be able to until Pepe is back and available.
  • Juventus signed Fernando Llorente from Athletic for next season and the club is in talks with Anelka and Lisandro Lopez.
  • Genoa sacked coach Delneri after the loss against Catania, and appointed Davide Ballardini instead.
  • The new coach should be working on a 4-3-1-2 with Bertolacci to support Borriello and Immobile up front.
  • Antonelli has been approached by Napoli, which means that Moretti should start the match in Turin at left-back.

Prediction

  • Juventus climbed back into a safer leading position with a 5 point lead over both Napoli and Lazio by cruising to a 4-0 win over Udinese. The Coppa Italia match could have ended better since they conceded a goal at home, but it proved that Lazio are strong opponents and genuine contenders in both competitions.
  • Genoa are in a desperate situation: the club just changed the coach for the second time this season, they are three points adrift of safety and they are travelling to Juventus. That's the environment in which miracles happen, but not all the time.
  • Expect the Bianconeri to push from the start and give no time for their opponents to settle. Genoa will have to defend carefully in the first part of the match to stand a chance of winning points, while an early lead for Juventus may be the hint to a bigger defeat for the Grifone.
