Sports Mole looks at how Juventus could line up in Friday's Serie A clash with Lecce.
Juventus will be looking for their fifth straight victory in Italy's top flight when they continue their 2019-20 campaign at home to struggling Lecce on Friday night.
The Old Lady recorded a 2-0 win at Bologna on Monday evening as they returned to Serie A action following the lockdown period.
Maurizio Sarri's side are currently four points clear of second-placed Lazio at the top of the table, although the gap could be down to a single point by the time that this particular fixture kicks off.
Here, Sports Mole looks at how Juve could line up against 18th-placed Lecce.
Out: Danilo (suspended), Alex Sandro (knee), Mattia De Sciglio (thigh), Sami Khedira (tendon), Merih Demiral (knee)
Doubtful: Gonzalo Higuain (thigh), Giorgio Chiellini (knee)
Blaise Matuidi could start at left-back on Friday as Alex Sandro and Mattia De Sciglio are both injured, while Danilo is suspended due to the red card that he picked up against Bologna last time out.
Sami Khedira and Merih Demiral are also on the sidelines through injury, while Gonzalo Higuain and Giorgio Chiellini remain doubts for the Italian champions.
There are not expected to be many changes from the side that started on Monday, although Douglas Costa could come in for Federico Bernardeschi to join Paulo Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo in attack.
Aaron Ramsey could get the nod over Adrien Rabiot to start alongside Rodrigo Bentancur and Miralem Pjanic in midfield, while there are unlikely to be alterations in central defence.
Chiellini could yet make the bench for Friday's affair, although Matthijs de Ligt is expected to continue alongside Leonardo Bonucci at the heart of the back four.
