Juventus welcome Salernitana to the Allianz Stadium in Turin as they look to strengthen their late Scudetto push in Serie A.

The Old Lady made it four wins in a row in Serie A with a 3-1 success over Sampdoria last weekend, closing the gap at the top to seven points.

However, they were dumped out of the Champions League in humiliating circumstances at home to Villarreal in the last 16 in midweek, conceding three times in the final 14 minutes.

Here's everything you need to know about the game.

Juventus team news

The Old Lady were handed a boost when Paulo Dybala, Federico Bernardeschi and Giorgio Chiellini made their return from injury in the midweek defeat to Villarreal in the Champions League.

However, Allegri will be without Leonardo Bonucci, with the Italian still battling a calf problem, while Denis Zakaria is unlikely to be risked before the international break.


Salernitana team news

Salernitana will hope to welcome back Pasquale Mazzocchi from an ankle problem he sustained in the 5-0 defeat to Inter earlier this month.

Similarly, Andrea Schiavone is close to returning from a hamstring problem, although Davide Nicola is likely to err on the side of caution with the midfielder after a few months out of action.


Juventus vs Salernitana score prediction

Salernitana's trip to face champions Inter earlier this month ended in vast disappointment, with the Nerazzurri running riot to the tune of a 5-0 victory.

Nicola's appointment as Salernitana boss has stemmed the run of defeats, but they still look thoroughly out of their depth against the best in Italy.

Expect Juventus to take advantage this weekend despite their disappointment in midweek, with Allegri likely to rest some of his key players ahead of a crucial Scudetto run-in on the horizon.

Prediction: Juventus 3-0 Salernitana
