How Juventus could line up against Torino

:Headline: How Juventus could line up against Torino:
Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Juventus could line up for Saturday's Derby della Mole against Torino.
Sports Mole

With pressure intensifying on coach Andrea Pirlo and his underperforming squad, Juventus come into the Turin Derby with a number of selection issues to resolve - due mostly to off-field events.

Ahead of the game, news of a regulation-breaking party which took place at on-loan midfielder Weston McKennie's home has jeopardised Pirlo's plans for the Derby della Mole.

As McKennie and fellow partygoer Paulo Dybala (who has only recently been passed fit after a heavily disrupted campaign) now facing exclusion as a result of their attendance - former Barcelona midfielder Arthur was also present but is injured in any case - Juve must adapt accordingly.

Not only that, but they face a mounting injury crisis in central defence, as both Turkey's Merih Demiral and Italy international Leonardo Bonucci tested positive for COVID-19 and must self-isolate.

Furthermore, centre-back Giorgio Chiellini returned from Azzurri duty early having picked up a knock, so the ever-versatile Danilo may even be required to join Matthijs de Ligt at the heart of the Bianconeri's makeshift rearguard.

In Arthur's absence - plus that of McKennie, should he ultimately be dropped - midfield misfit Aaron Ramsey could be set to feature on Saturday, given the lack of other options for his manager.

Capocanonniere-chasing Cristiano Ronaldo returns from a controversial international period to lead the line for Juve, with Alvaro Morata favoured over Dejan Kulusevski to partner Portugal's record goalscorer up front.

Juventus possible starting lineup:
Szczesny; Danilo, Chiellini, De Ligt, Cuadrado; Bentancur, Ramsey, Rabiot, Chiesa; Morata, Ronaldo
