Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. will attempt to extend their winning streak and their lead at the top of Serie A when they return to league action

Juventus return to Serie A action on Monday when they welcome Chievo to the Allianz Stadium and they come into the game on a high after lifting the Supercoppa Italiana.

Massimiliano Allegri's side beat AC Milan in the final to secure the silverware, with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring the decisive goal on the way to scooping his first trophy with the club.

The Bianconeri now turn their attention back to league matters, where a win over the side propping up the rest of the division will ensure they remain out in front of Napoli, Inter and the rest of the chasing pack.

Juve met Chievo in the first game of the season back in August and, while that game was a tight affair which finished 3-2, Domenico Di Carlo's side have registered just one Serie A victory all term.

Match Preview

Massimiliano Allegri Juventus coach

When Juventus came up against Chievo six months ago in Verona the hosts would have come away from the game with plenty cause for optimism, but their fortunes swiftly declined.

The visitors endured an incredible 16-game winless streak in all competitions before finally putting their first Serie A win on the board in December when they defeated Frosinone 1-0.

Forty-five points separate the two teams heading into Monday's encounter in Turin, but Allegri is wary of the opposition's new-found impetus as they attempt to avoid relegation.

"We have to be focused," Allegri told reporters ahead of the game.

"With Di Carlo at the helm, Chievo have picked up a win, five draws and one defeat and they will keep believing until the end."

Nevertheless, considering the fact that Chievo have scored just 14 goals - the same number as Ronaldo - the outlook does not look promising for the Flying Donkeys.
