thumbnail Hello,

The former Napoli striker, who has been in good goalscoring form of late, has recovered from a knock and retains his place in the Bianconeri forward line ahead of Alessandro Matri

Fabio Quagliarella will again start up front for Juventus in Sunday night's crucial Serie A clash with Roma.

The former Napoli striker had been a doubt for the game in Turin with a thigh injury but he has been passed fit to partner Mirko Vucinic in the Bianconeri attack.

Consequently, there is just one change to the side which overcame Lazio last time out, with wing-back Paolo De Ceglie coming into the side in place of Simone Pepe, who has been dropped to the bench.

Juve's match-winner against the Biancocelesti, Alessandro Del Piero, has also been named among the substitutes.

As for Roma, they are buoyed by the availability of Fabio Borini after a back problem and he returns to the starting lineup in place Francesco Totti, who has been carrying a knock.

Elsewhere, Aleandro Rosi takes over from Rodrigo Taddei at right-back, while midfielder Daniele De Rossi continues alongside Simon Kjaer at the heart of the Giallorossi defence, with Gabriel Heinze again forced to make do with a place on the bench.

Simone Perotta returns in midfield as Miralem Pjanic is pushed forward in support of forward duo Borini and Pablo Osvaldo, with Erik Lamela the man to make way as Luis Enrique's switch to a 4-3-1-2 formation results in some surprising casualties.

Juventus (3-5-2): Buffon; Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini; Lichtsteiner, Vidal, Pirlo, Marchisio, De Ceglie; Quagliarella, Vucinic.

Subs: Storari, Caceres, Pepe, Del Piero, Borriello, Giaccherini, Matri.

Roma (4-3-1-2): Stekelenburg; Rosi, De Rossi, Kjaer, Jose Angel; Perrotta, Gago, Marquinho; Pjanic; Osvaldo, Borini.

Subs: Curci, Taddei, Heinze, Greco, Bojan, Totti, Lamela.
