Players to Watch
Alessandro Matri
Alessandro Matri
Position: Striker
Squad Number: 32
Games Goals YC RC
13 4 1 0
The Italy international has been solid for Juve since joining the club in the winter transfer window but hasn't found the back of the net in the last three games. The Bianconeri need him to be a prominent figure down the stretch in the race for fourth spot in Serie A.
Sergio Pellissier
Sergio Pellissier

The veteran striker will look to play the role of spoiler as Chievo look to derail Juve's late charge for a Champions League spot. The 31-year-old will be the dangerman on Monday and will keep the home side's back line on their toes.
