Juventus will be eager to respond to last weekend's Derby d'Italia defeat to Inter when they travel to face lowly Cagliari in Serie A.

He will join long-term absentees Weston McKennie and Federico Chiesa in the treatment room table, while Alvaro Morata and Mattia De Sciglio are suspended.

Cagliari vs Juventus score prediction

After last weekend's bitterly disappointing defeat to Inter, Juventus must respond this weekend if they have any chance of keeping their faint hopes of reclaiming the Scudetto alive.

Indeed, defeat in the Derby d'Italia was the Old Lady's first loss since November in Serie A, and there was much to take encouragement from in Juventus' performance.

Denis Zakaria impressed after replacing the injured Locatelli and, with no Champions League football to contend with, full focus can be placed on domestic matters.

Prediction: Cagliari 0-2 Juventus
