Juventus continue their quest for a top-four finish in Serie A as they travel to face Jose Mourinho's Roma side at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday.

The Old Lady were frustrated in midweek when they were held to a 1-1 home draw by Napoli, leaving them three points off Atalanta in 4th place despite having played a game more.

Juventus have no major absentees to deal with, although there are concerns over centre-backs Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini, who have been dealing with injury and Covid-19 respectively.

Here's how Juventus could line up.


Juventus predicted lineup vs Roma - Serie A

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Wojciech Szczesny (GK) - Looks more assured between the posts after a turbulent start to the campaign.

Mattia De Sciglio (RB) - Allegri has tended to prefer Juan Cuadrado at full back in recent weeks, but the Italian will shore up the defence against a talented Roma attacking cast.

Daniele Rugani (CB) - Stood up to the challenge in midweek after replacing the injured Bonucci.

Matthijs de Ligt (CB) - Hasn't been plain sailing since he arrived at Juventus, but there have been signs in recent weeks that he is beginning to find his feet.

Luca Pellegrini (LB) - Missed the midweek draw with Napoli through illness, but he could come straight back into the team.

2. Midfielders

Arthur (CM) - Back from injury and back to the forefront of Allegri's team selections.

Rodrigo Bentancur (CM) - Arguably Juve's most impressive midfielder when he's in a confident mood.

Paulo Dybala (AM) - Made his return from injury in the Napoli draw in midweek.

3. Forwards

Alvaro Morata (ST) - Allegri is keen to retain the Spaniard amid interest from Barcelona.

Federico Chiesa (LW) - Netted Juve's leveller in midweek in his first start after returning from injury.
