Juventus welcome Fiorentina to the Allianz Stadium this weekend as they aim to arrest their alarming Serie A form.

The Old Lady are languishing in 9th place after successive league defeats, falling at home to Sassuolo before being condemned to a 2-1 away defeat to Verona last time out.

Their Champions League form has provided a welcome distraction, as they sit three points ahead of Chelsea atop Group H having secured qualification to the last 16 in midweek.

Here's how Allegri could line his side up.


Juventus predicted lineup vs Fiorentina - Serie A

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Wojciech Szczesny (GK) - Recovered from his early season lull to produce a string of impressive displays between the posts.

Danilo (RB) - Technically proficient and always stands up to the defensive questions asked of him.

Leonardo Bonucci (CB) - Netted at the wrong end against Zenit in midweek, but his leadership qualities are invaluable.

Matthijs de Ligt (CB) - Dropped to the bench for last weekend's defeat to Verona, but returned for the Champions League clash in midweek and impressed.

Alex Sandro (LB) - Offers a great outlet on the left hand side, providing quality deliveries into dangerous areas.


2. Midfielders

Federico Chiesa (RM) - Pace, directness, end product. The Italy international is the full package.

Arthur (CM) - Composed on the ball and his security in possession allows Juventus to break forward at speed.

Weston McKennie (CM) - Offers a goal threat from midfield, becoming a threat from set pieces in recent weeks.

Federico Bernardeschi (LM) - Causes chaos, not always to his side's benefit, but he is capable of producing moments of magic.


3. Forwards

Paulo Dybala (ST) - The man of the moment for Juventus, netting another brace in midweek. Undroppable.

Alvaro Morata (ST) - The Spaniard is a streaky forward, but he should gain confidence from his goal in the win over Zenit.
