Team News

  • Antonio Conte will have Marchisio back and will probably rest Vidal.
  • Barzagli could be rested as well together with Chiellini, Matri and Vucinic.
  • Quagliarella and Giovinco will have a chance up front, which gives them a chance to impress Conte ahead of their match against Napoli.
  • Coach Iachini will keep the same XI that beat Lazio last Monday night.
  • Emeghara is the will definitely start after he scored 4 in his first 4 Serie A appearances with the same number of shots on target.
  • Valiani or Mannini could be a more offensive solution than Belmonte to replace Angelo on the right side.

Prediction

  • Juventus paid the price of winning 0-3 at Celtic Park with a defeat in Rome last week, but the price was just one point as Napoli couldn't take advantage from that. Conte had a weeks rest to give his players, and will probably try to manage energies also during this match against Siena.
  • The visitors had an incredible night against Lazio and can still dream of safety despite the penalisation that is keeping them low from the beginning of the season. Of course winning in Turin is not a realistic hope for such a team, but they will try to give Juventus a tough match.
  • Iachini proved to be experienced enough to know how to face matches against big clubs: Siena are likely to sit and wait, possibly attacking only with few men even when given the chance. The classic expression of parking in front the goal could suit this match, but Juve will have to keep an eye on Emeghara, should the striker put one feet out of the bus. Siena could change array in case Juventus will be able to take an early lead, and in that case the match could be more open for goal scoring chances.
