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.

S. 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.

Editor's Prediction

Juve desperately need all three points on Monday to stay in the race for the last Champions League spot. The Bianconeri have a sparkling home record against Chievo in Turin and should do enough to pick up a vital victory.
