JUV vs FIO Dream11 Match Preview, Team News, Lineups

If Fiorentina need a boost to haul themselves out of their current slump, then the next game can go a long way in doing just that.

The Viola are set to play host to the reigning champions at Stadio Artemio Franchi. They are yet to open their account for the season following two defeats in the first two league games.

Juventus meanwhile have made a flying start to the new season, after winning both their games. They are held back from the top-spot by Inter Milan's better goal difference.

The hosts are on a very awful run. They are not winless this season but have not won a league game dating back to last year, a run of 16 games.

Can they snap the skid against the biggest of the challenges facing any Serie A team?

Match Details:

The Serie A match will be played between Fiorentina and Juventus at Stadio Artemio Franchi, in Florence, Italy. The ground has a capacity of 43,147.
The game will start at 06:30 PM (IST), on Saturday, September 14.

Fiorentina Team News:

  • No injury problems for the hosts ahead of this game.

Possible INs and OUTs of this game:

  • Vincenzo Montella confirmed that Franck Ribery should be fit for the start after training all week with the squad. The former Bayern Munich superstar played both the league games from the bench due to the lack of match fitness.
  • If the 36-year-old starts, expect Italy U-21 star Riccardo Sottil to drop down to the bench.
  • No more changes are expected. Montella should name much of the side which featured in the opening two games.
  • In addition, Fiorentina added Pedro to their roster after agreeing on a deal with Brazil club Fluminense. The Brazil U-22 star will be wearing the historic no-9 shirt, previously worn by Batistuta. He may be involved here from the bench.

Fiorentina Probable XI:

Dragowski (GK), Dalbert, Pezzella, Milenkovic, Lirola, Pulgar, Badelj, Castrovilli, Ribery, Chiesa, Boateng

Juventus FC Team News:

  • Captain fantastic Georgio Chiellini sprained his knee while on Italy duty. Juventus later confirmed that the 35-year-old underwent successful surgery.
  • Chiellini is joined by Marko Pjaca and Mattia de Sciglio on the injury list.

Possible ins or outs of this game:

  • Gonzalo Higuain should continue to lead the attack after a good start in the league, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Douglas Costa on either side of him in the attack.
  • Danilo should start at left-back due to the unavailability of De Sciglio.
  • Despite Matthijs de Light's less than convincing start in Italy, the young Dutchman should start alongside Leonardo Bonucci at the back.

Juventus Probable XI:

Szczesny (GK), Sandro, Bonucci, De Ligt, Danilo, Khedira, Matuidi, Pjanic, Costa, Higuain, Ronaldo

Likely to score:

  • For Fiorentina: Kevin-Prince Boateng, Federico Chiesa, Franck Ribery
  • For Juventus: Cristiano Ronaldo, Diego Costa, Gonzalo Higuain

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

Cristiano Ronaldo: The age-defying and once-in-a-generation footballer Cristiano Ronaldo continues to amaze one and all with his incredible and unfathomable consistency. He is a superstar.

Season Stats (All competitions):

  • Games: 09
  • Goals: 09

Gonzalo Higuain: The forgotten man has revived his career in Turin, following a very good start to the 2019-20 Serie A season. He will be a threat.

Season Stats (All competitions):

  • Games: 04
  • Goals: 01

Miralem Pjanic: He is the engine of the midfield. A gifted midfielder who is easy on the eye and can leave the opponents in their wake with his passing and intelligent movement off the ball.

Season Stats (All competitions):

  • Games: 13
  • Goals: 01
  • Assists: 02

Kevin-Prince Boateng: Has that ability to pop-up with something extra-ordinary. The 32-year-old former Portsmouth, Schalke, and AC Milan star will be a threat all day long for the away side.

Serie A Stats (Current season)

  • Games: 02
  • Goals: 01

Federico Chiese: Fiorentina's prized asset, who like most of his peers, may end up in Turin. But for the time being, he is a Viola and their most gifted player.

Juventus should at least get a draw here.
