Milos Krasic has scored in his last two games for Juventus and on both occasions the Bianconeri have won. On Wednesday the Serbia international winger said that he is happy with his performance in his debut season for the Old Lady. However, the 26-year-old will aim to carry on his scoring run and put Genoa to the sword.

Juventus still look susceptible at the back and Genoa striker Rodrigo Palacio will hope to take advantage of that. Palacio will start alongside Antonio Floro Flores in attack for the Grifoni and will aim to put the Bianconeri defence in sixes and sevens with his movement.

Juventus have won their last two league matches and appear to have revived their chances of playing in Europe next season. Genoa have nothing to play for between now and the end of the season. A victory for the Bianconeri looks a likely outcome.
