Sports Mole looks at how Juventus could line up in Sunday night's Serie A clash with Napoli.

Juventus will be looking to make it six straight wins in Serie A when they travel to Naples to take on Napoli on Sunday night.

The Italian champions have collected 15 points from their last five matches to overtake Inter Milan at the top of the table, with Maurizio Sarri's side now boasting a four-point advantage at the summit.

The Old Lady also progressed in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday night with a 3-1 win over Roma and will now be looking to pick up another positive result in Italy's top flight this weekend.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how the Turin giants could line up against Gennaro Gattuso's side.

Out: Giorgio Chiellini (knee), Sami Khedira (knee), Mattia De Sciglio (abductor), Merih Demiral (knee), Danilo (muscle)

Juve still have a fairly lengthy injury list with Giorgio Chiellini, Sami Khedira, Mattia De Sciglio and Merih Demiral unavailable for selection, while Danilo will also miss out on Sunday due to a muscular complaint.

Rodrigo Bentancur was not available to face Parma last weekend through suspension but returned against Roma on Wednesday night and will battle Adrien Rabiot for a spot in midfield.

The fact that Paulo Dybala was left on the bench in the Coppa Italia suggests that he might get the nod to start alongside Cristiano Ronaldo in attack, while Aaron Ramsey was also a substitute during the week and should therefore return to the side for this one.

Matthijs de Ligt and Juan Cuadrado should also be recalled to the starting XI, while Leonardo Bonucci and Alex Sandro are certainties to feature in a defensive area.

Federico Bernardeschi is another option for Sarri in the final third, but the 25-year-old continues to be linked with a move away from the club and is therefore unlikely to be included in the starting XI.
