Juventus travel to face Cagliari in Serie A as the Old Lady look to keep their faint hopes of reclaiming the Scudetto alive.

Last weekend's Derby d'Italia defeat dented Juventus' hopes, although Massimiliano Allegri will take encouragement from the performance from his charges.

Milan's goalless draw with Bologna on Monday evening leaves the Old Lady seven points off the pace at the top with seven games remaining, with Juventus to play none of the top five in the table before the end of the season.

Here's how the Old Lady could line up.


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Wojciech Szczesny (GK) - His consistency in saving penalties is becoming remarkable, although he failed stop Hakan Calhanoglu's retake last weekend.

Danilo (RB) - His defensive nous allows Pellegrini greater license to stretch his legs on the opposite flank.

Matthijs de Ligt (CB) - Penalised for encroachment after Szczesny's initial penalty save from Calhanoglu last weekend.

Giorgio Chiellini (CB) - Could very well be the penultimate month of the Italian's Juventus career.

Luca Pellegrini (LB) - Should return to the side after sitting out of the Derby d'Italia defeat through suspension.

2. Midfielders

Denis Zakaria (CM) - Made a huge impact after replacing the injured Locatelli last weekend, cracking the post after a lovely jinking run.

Adrien Rabiot (CM) - Produced one of his most impressive performances of the season against Inter last weekend.

Paulo Dybala (AM) - The number 10 is on his way out the door, and will be looking to end his Juve career on a high.

3. Forwards

Juan Cuadrado (RW) - No Juventus player is averaging more key passes per game (1.7) than the Colombian in Serie A.

Dusan Vlahovic (ST) - The complete package as a centre forward, although he left his shooting boots at home last weekend.

Moise Kean (LW) - Likely to replace the suspended Alvaro Morata on the left hand side.
