Juventus travel to face Venezia as the Old Lady look to continue their momentum in Serie A after back-to-back victories.

Massimiliano Allegri's side moved up to fifth in the table after last weekend's 2-0 win over Genoa, with the Bianconeri targeting a return to the Champions League spots ahead of the forthcoming winter break.

Midweek brought a 1-0 victory at home to Malmo for Juventus in their final Champions League group game, crowning them as group winners following Chelsea's 3-3 draw with Zenit.

Here's how Juve could line up.

Wojciech Szczesny (GK) - Successive clean sheets, the former Arsenal stopper has recovered from a shaky start to the season.

Mattia De Sciglio (RB) - Made his return to the side with a substitute appearance in the midweek win over Malmo.

Matthijs de Ligt (CB) - The Dutchman has looked more assured in recent weeks alongside Chiellini.

Giorgio Chiellini (CB) - Successive clean sheets for Juventus in the league since the veteran came into the side.

Luca Pellegrini (LB) - Should retain his place in the defence after a string of impressive performances.

2. Midfielders

Juan Cuadrado (RM) - His pace and directness will cause Venezia issues on the flanks.

Rodrigo Bentancur (CM) - Produced a stellar midfield performance against Genoa last time out.

Manuel Locatelli (CM) - The Italy international is forming a blossoming partnership with Bentancur in midfield.

Federico Bernardeschi (LM) - A more offensive option than Adrien Rabiot on the left hand side.

3. Forwards

Paulo Dybala

Paulo Dybala (ST) - Standout performance in the win over Genoa, with Juve relying heavily upon his goals this season.

Alvaro Morata (ST) - Guilty of being wasteful in front of goal, but his link-up play with Dybala is improving.
