Juventus will look to get back to winning ways as they travel to Frosinone on Serie A Matchday 17 at the Stadio Benito Stripe.
The Bianconeri are second on 37 points, but they are now four points behind Serie A leaders Inter after their 1-1 draw away to Genoa in their last match. Meanwhile, the Canarini are 13th on 19 points, and they have won just once in their last five games.
This match will also be intriguing from a tactical perspective. Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri is known for his defence-first approach whereas Frosinone tactician Eusebio Di Francesco will encourage his team to attack the opponent regardless of reputation.
Can Di Francesco spring a surprising with his proactive approach or will it play into the hands of the conservative Allegri?
Frosinone vs Juventus: Predicted line-ups
Frosinone will be missing Riccardo Marchizza, Reinier, and captain Luca Mazzitelli with injuries, whereas Caleb Okoli is suspended. Anthony Oyono is one yellow card from serving a suspension.
Moise Kean and Mattia De Sciglio are sidelined, while Adrien Rabiot remains a doubt for Juventus. Andrea Cambiaso, Manuel Locatelli, and Federico Gatti are a yellow card each away from serving bans.
Bianconeri tactician Allegri is likely to keep the same line-up that started against Genoa while his Canarini counterpart Di Francesco will probably start three players on loan from La Vecchia Signora. Enzo Barrenechea, Matias Soule, and Kaio Jorge should feature from the first whistle for the Ciociari, and right-back Pol Lirola was on the books of Juventus in the 2010s.
Frosinone predicted XI vs Juventus (4-3-3): Turati; Lirola, Lusuardi, Romagnoli, Monterisi; Brescianini, Barrenechea, Gelli; Soule, Kaio Jorge, Ibrahimovic.
Juventus predicted XI vs Frosinone (3-5-2): Szczesny; Gatti, Bremer, Danilo; Cambiaso, McKennie, Locatelli, Miretti, Kostic; Vlahovic, Chiesa.
