Juventus will host Lecce at the Allianz Stadium to commence Serie A Matchday 6 on Tuesday evening and both teams will go into this team having made impressive starts to the 2023/24 season.

The Bianconeri are looking like early contenders for the scudetto, and coach Massimiliano Allegri has found the right balance between defence and attack. Danilo has been a rock at the back for La Vecchia Signora while Federico Chiesa and Dusan Vlahovic have formed a formidable pairing up front.

Meanwhile, the Salentini find themselves in the Champions League spots after five rounds despite changing coaches this summer. The Apulian club replaced Marco Baroni with Roberto D’Aversa, and after some mixed results at Parma and Sampdoria while they were in Serie A, he has Lecce flying high for now.

Juventus will not have Mattia De Sciglio available to due a knee injury while Alex Sandro has a muscular injury. Lecce will be missing Kastriot Dermaku and Lameck Banda with thigh injuries, but Federico Baschirotto will make his return from suspension.

Both coaches might look to rotate their squads due to the tight scheduling, but the chances could be minimal considering the form of the two sides. The likes of Timothy Weah and Nicolo Fagioli could get a look-in at Juve while Remi Oudin should break into the Salentini after scoring the winner against Genoa.

Juventus predicted XI vs Lecce (3-5-2): Szczesny; Gatti, Bremer, Danilo; Weah, Fagioli, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostic; Chiesa, Vlahovic.

Lecce predicted XI vs Juventus (4-3-3): Falcone; Gendrey, Pongracic, Baschirotto, Gallo; Kaba, Ramadani, Oudin; Almqvist, Krstovic, Strefezza.
