Team News

  • Arturo Vidal is one booking away from a suspension and the potential of missing the second leg.
  • Juve rested Leandro Bonucci at the weekend, while Andrea Pirlo was absent through suspension so he'll also be fresh for Thursday night.
  • Despite having rested a number of players in the double header against Trabzonspor Antonio Conte may well field his strongest possible XI.
  • Fiorentina have three players that are just one card away from missing the return leg, with Juan Cuadrado among them.
  • Both Nenad Tomovic and Borja Valero missed the match against the same opponents at the weekend due to suspension, with the latter sure to return to the starting XI.
  • Giuseppe Rossi is still out through injury but Mario Gomez is back fit to vie for a starting berth with Alessandro Matri.

Prediction

  • Juventus will look to hold the psychological advantage having narrowly beaten Fiorentina at home at the weekend courtesy of an excellent Kwadwo Asamoah strike, though the Viola will be out for revenge.
  • The visitors may make changes from the defeat on Sunday in turn, while Juventus will welcome back Andrea Pirlo into their midfield.
  • Conte will want to take an advantage into what will be a difficult second leg in Florence and will likely leave the onus on Fiorentina to set the tempo and look to pick up another clean sheet.
