Team News

Juventus
Empoli
  • Adrien Rabiot and Federico Chiesa are injured ahead of this fixture and unlikely to take part.
  • Liberato Cacace is set to replace Emmanuel Gyasi as Davide Nicola will confirm a 3-5-2 formation.

Prediction

  • Juventus are the new Serie A leaders after defeating Lecce 3-0 on Sunday thanks to another brace from Dusan Vlahovic.
  • The Bianconeri will now have a chance to extend their lead on Inter to four points ahead of next week's clash, although the Nerazzurri have a game in hand due to the Supercup fixtures.
  • On paper, this should be an easy win for a side that has been almost perfect at home so far this season, but Empoli come into this one on the back of a 3-0 win against Monza and will be eager to build momentum and confidence under their new coach Davide Nicola, who held the Bianconeri to a 2-2 draw in his last visit to Turin.
