After sealing a spot in the Coppa Italia final, Juventus' focus is now back on cementing a spot in Serie A's top four as they resume league action on Monday night.

The next obstacle for Massimiliano Allegri to overcome comes in the form of Sassuolo, who find themselves lost in mid-table obscurity and with very little other than personal pride to play for.

Here's how the boss could set up.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Wojciech Szczesny (GK) - Rested for the cup game, Szczesny will replace Mattia Perin in the lineup.

Juan Cuadrado (RB) - Juventus' star against Fiorentina, Cuadrado should see some significant minutes in this one.

Leonardo Bonucci (CB) - Looks to be back to full fitness after his latest calf issue and should start here.

Matthijs de Ligt (CB) - Only Szczesny has played more minutes for Juventus this season than De Ligt.

Alex Sandro (LB) - Juventus are expected to replace Sandro this summer, with Chelsea's Emerson rumoured to be a top target.

2. Midfielders

Denis Zakaria (CM) - There aren't many midfielders available for Allegri so Zakaria is going to have to put in a real shift.

Danilo (CM) - The ongoing injury crisis has seen Danilo moved into midfield, and the results have been pretty encouraging.

Adrien Rabiot (CM) - With nobody else to choose from, Rabiot should keep his place.

3. Forwards

Dusan Vlahovic

Paulo Dybala (RW) - Given a decent rest against Fiorentina, Dybala will likely come in out wide.

Dusan Vlahovic (ST) - The superstar hitman has a goal and two assists in two games already against Sassuolo this season.

Alvaro Morata (LW) - With Federico Chiesa out, Morata has been plying his trade as a winger in recent weeks.
