Juventus are looking to win their 15th Coppa Italia when they face off against Inter in this year's final on Wednesday night.

Max Allegri's side have not enjoyed the best season but clinching some silverware would add some much-needed gloss to the campaign.

Here is the starting XI Allegri seems most likely to select for the fixture...

Mattia Perin (GK) - Juventus' cup keeper should be rewarded for his displays with a spot in the final over regular stopper Wojciech Szczesny.

Danilo (RB) - Has plugged gaps here, there and everywhere this season. With Mattia De Sciglio suspended, he will return to his 'natural' right-back role.

Matthijs de Ligt (CB) - De Ligt should be drafted back into the starting XI after Daniele Rugani and Leonardo Bonucci started the defeat to Genoa last Friday.

Giorgio Chiellini (CB) - As above. Chiellini is seeking to win his sixth Coppa Italia on Wednesday evening.

Luca Pellegrini (LB) - Provided he passes a late fitness test, Pellegrini should be preferred to Alex Sandro on the left side of defence.

Denis Zakaria (CM) - Has proved a pretty smart addition in January and has played twice in the Coppa Italia this season.

Adrien Rabiot (CM) - Weston McKennie and Manuel Locatelli are better options than Rabiot but neither are likely to be fit enough to start.

Juan Cuadrado (RW) - Out of contract next summer and now 33, Cuadrado could be running out of time to add to his personal trophy cabinet.

Paulo Dybala (AM) - Allegri has confirmed that Inter-bound (probably) Dybala will play here in what is certain to be a somewhat awkward occasion for the Argentine.

Alvaro Morata (LW) - Has played a lot more minutes out wide this season then he might have been expecting.

Dusan Vlahovic (ST) - After a strong start to life in Turin his form has tailed off. Scoring in a final could be just what his confidence needs.
