Picking the Best Potential Juventus Lineup to Face Fiorentina in Serie A on Saturday

Juventus prepare to travel to the Stadio Artemio Franchi to face Fiorentina on Saturday in the Serie A.


Massimiliano Allegri will be without midfielders Emre Can and Sami Khedira, alongside winger Federico Bernardeschi. 


Here is how Juventus could line up at the Stadio Artemio Franchi on Saturday.

1. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Wojciech Szczęsny (GK): The Polish goalkeeper has played all but one Serie A this campaign for the Bianconeri, keeping eight clean sheets in 16 appearances in all competitions.


João Cancelo (RB): The Portuguese full-back has been a staple in the side since his move this summer and should keep his place this weekend.


Leonardo Bonucci (CB): The Italian defender has looked far more comfortable back at the Bianconeri since returning from Milan.


Giorgio Chiellini (CB): The veteran Italian has been a terrific servant for club and country. He recently made his 100th appearance for the Azzurri, and has played the entirety of every match he has started, helping his side keep six clean sheets.


Alex Sandro (LB): The Brazilian full-back has been instrumental to his team this season, especially going forward. He gives this team some much needed width as they play with a narrow front three.

2. Midfielders

Rodrigo Bentancur (CM): Sami Khedira's ankle injury means that Bentancur will remain in the starting lineup in his absence. The Uruguayan has started in each of the Bianconeri's last seven matches, playing the entire 90 each time and scoring once.


Miralem Pjanić (CDM): The midfielder is excellent on the ball, rarely loses possession and has great vision. He has three goals and one assist to his name in 15 appearances in all competitions.


Blaise Matuidi (CM): The Frenchman has become integral to his team this season and has earned the love of his manager and the fans with his tireless effort.

3. Forwards

Paulo Dybala (RW): Dybala is enjoying a terrific season. He has already contributed to seven goals in 15 appearances, scoring six of them. This is even more impressive given his rough start to the season.


Mario Mandžukić (ST): The Croatian has been the one who has benefited most from Higuain's departure. He is in the best form of his career and has scored three goals in his last six games against Fiorentina - his best tally against any Serie A side.


Cristiano Ronaldo (LW): Ronaldo's nine goals in his first 13 games is a club best since Pietro Anastasi in 1968/69. Five of his goals have come away from home and he will look to add to that tally away to Fiorentina.
