The 26-year-old has scored seven goals in 11 games for Juve since joining the club on the last day of the winter transfer window and should add to his tally against a poor Catania defence that likes to leak goals on the road.

M. López

Position: Attacker

It's been a pretty disappointing season for the Argentine as he has only mustered seven goals in 30 appearances. He will look to harass the Juve back line and snap Catania's winless streak on the road in the process.

Editor's Prediction

Catania have yet to pick up a victory on the road in Serie A and their streak will continue this weekend in Turin as Juve will cruise to a comfortable win in Turin.
