How Juventus could line up against Torino

Juventus will continue their 2019-20 Serie A campaign with a clash against Turin rivals Torino at the Allianz Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Old Lady are on a run of six straight league victories and currently sit four points clear of second-placed Lazio at the top of the table.

Three of those wins have arrived since the lockdown period in Italy's top flight, first overcoming Bologna on June 22 before beating Lecce and Genoa in their last two.

Maurizio Sarri 's side will be determined to put another three points on the board this weekend, particularly ahead of Tuesday's clash away to AC Milan.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Juve could line up in the Derby della Mole.

Out: Mattia De Sciglio (thigh), Alex Sandro (knee), Sami Khedira (tendon), Giorgio Chiellini (knee), Merih Demiral (knee)

Juve will again be without the services of Mattia De Sciglio, Alex Sandro, Sami Khedira, Giorgio Chiellini and Merih Demiral through injury for this weekend's contest.

Danilo returned from a suspension to play at left-back against Genoa, though, and that is again expected to be the case in this match, meaning that Blaise Matuidi is likely to start on the bench once again.

Adrien Rabiot appears to be ahead of Aaron Ramsey in the pecking order at the moment, and the Frenchman should continue alongside Miralem Pjanic and Rodrigo Bentancur in the middle of the park.

There are not expected to be changes in goal, at right-back or in central defence, although Sarri could make an alteration in the final third of the field.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala are again certain starters, but Douglas Costa scored off the bench against Genoa on Tuesday and could now be rotated into the XI in place of Federico Bernardeschi.

Gonzalo Higuain is also available after a slight injury, but the Argentine is unlikely to start.
