The league leaders will look to beat the defending champions in a heavyweight clash in Turin on Sunday evening.



Lichtsteiner, Barzagli, Chiellini, De Ceglie
Marchisio, Pirlo
Krasic, Vucinic, Matri, Pepe


Abate, Nesta, Thiago Silva, Antonini
Nocerino, van Bommel,
Ibrahimovic, Cassano

Antonio Conte has the luxury of choosing from an essentially fully-fit squad for the crunch clash on Sunday, as Vincenzo Iaquinta is the only player he will not be able to call upon. Andrea Barzagli took part in Wednesday's training session and should get the nod alongside Giorgio Chiellini in the centre of defence.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned for the Champions League clash midweek against Viktoria Plzen and will start up front beside Antonio Cassano. Massimiliano Allegri will still be missing a plethora of players though as Philippe Mexes, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Robinho, Gennaro Gattuso, Massimo Ambrosini and Alexandre Pato are all nursing injuries.

  • Juventus is undefeated in theits ir new state-of-the-art arena, scoring five goals while only conceding twice in two games.
  • The visitors emerged victorious in the two meetings between the teams last season. Juventus beat Milan 2-1 at San Siro while the champions upended the Old Lady 1-0 in Turin.
  • The Old Lady had the longest unbeaten streak in Serie A last season, going 13 games without a loss.
  • Massimiliano Allegri's men conceded the fewest goals during the 2010-11 campaign (24).
  • Coach Antonio Conte won five Scudetti and one Champions League title as a player for the Turin outfit.
  • Milan kept the most clean sheets last season (20) but has only one in four games so far this term.
