Antonio Conte does not have many injuries worries ahead of the match with Mirko Vucinic the only player sidelined, but the 42-year-old coach will be missing the services of Arturo Vidal and Leonardo Bonucci through suspension. Emanuele Giaccherini looks poised to start on the wing, while Alessandro Del Piero should get the nod upfront.

Novara boss Attilio Tesser has the luxury of choosing from a fully-fit squad as he looks to spring a surprise over Juve on Sunday.

  • Juventus are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D2) and have outscored their opponents 16-5 in the process.
  • The Bianconeri have kept three clean sheets at the Juventus Stadium this term.
  • The Turin outfit have won five games by a one-goal margin in the 2011-12 campaign.
  • Novara have picked up just two wins against Juve in their last 24 Serie A encounters (W2 D9 L13).
  • The Serie A newcomers are winless on their travels this season (W0 D2 L5).
  • Attilio Tesser's men have conceded 14 goals in their seven matches away from home this term.
