Juventus team News:

  • Semi Khedira is out for the season after undergoing surgery on his knee. The German world cup winner was in continuous pain and had no choice but to go under the knife.
  • Joining him on the sidelines is Douglas Costa whose stop-start season has been hampered by the calf problem and will see out the season from the treatment room.
  • Back-up goalkeeper Mattia Perin will miss the game with a shoulder injury. As a result, Carlo Pinsoglio and Mattia Del Favero will provide the cover for Wojciech Szczęsny between the posts.

Possible ins and outs:

  • This will be the last home game for manager Massimiliano Allegri after he and the club both decided to part ways at the end of the season. So expect him to name a strong XI for this game as he seeks to end the tenure on a high.
  • Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci are in the matchday squad and should start at the back, with Alex Sandro and Joao Cancelo on the flanks.
  • Emre Can and Blaise Matudi are both fit and are expected to be named in the midfield alongside Miralem Pjanic.
  • Paulo Dybala is 100% now, as is the case with Croatian superstar Mario Mandzukic. So that means, Moise Kean may have to contend with a place on the bench.
  • Cristiano Ronaldo is a no-brainer. He will definitely start.

Probable XI: Szczesny (GK), Cancelo, Barzagli, Bonucci, Sandro, Matuidi, Can, Pjanic, Cuadrado, Ronaldo, Mandzukic

Atalanta team news:

  • Centre-back Rafael Tolói is Atalanta's only injury casualty at the moment.
  • Though, Atalanta will also miss center-back Jose Luis Palomino who will be serving a ban following his fifth booking of the season in the last game.
  • Gianluca Mancini is available for selection as missing the last league game through a suspension.

Possible ins and outs:

  • Either the thirty-year-old Andrea Masiello or Gianluca Mancini will fill-in for the suspended Jose Luis Palomino at the back.
  • Few changes are expected from Atalanta.

Probable XI: Gollini (GK), Mancini, Djimsiti, Masiello, Hateboer, De Roon, Freuler, Gomez, Castagne, Ilicic, Zapata
