Coppa Italia Preview: Juventus - Roma

Antonio Conte's men host the Giallorossi on Tuesday night in Italy's cup competition, with the visitors in red hot form following five consecutive victories


PROBABLE LINEUPS
JUVENTUS

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


ROMA


Stekelenburg

Totti
Lamela, Bojan


Juventus have only one real injury concern going into Tuesday's clash, with Fabio Quagliarella still on the sidelines after the former Napoli forward sustained a fractured cheekbone in the recent victory over Lecce.

Luis Enrique has a few problems to contend with, as both Marco Cassetti and Dani Osvaldo are ruled out of the tie, with the pair suffering from achilles and thigh problems respectively.

Another potential issue for the Giallorossi is the likely absence of Daniele De Rossi, with the Italy international still nursing the groin problem that saw him miss the 5-1 demolition of Cesena on Saturday evening, meaning Leandro Greco is likely to keep his place in the middle of the park for the visitors.
