Line-ups: Palermo-Juventus

Juventus can go top of the table with a victory against a decimated Palermo this evening and rely on Mirko Vucinic and Fabio Quagliarella.

Milan’s shock 2-1 home defeat to Fiorentina means the Bianconeri can obliterate the two-point gap in today’s 17.30 UK time kick-off.

Antonio Conte has a full squad to choose from going into the Stadio Barbera, so Vucinic partners Quagliarella in attack with Marcelo Estigarribia given a rare start.

Palermo are decimated for this game, as bans alone rule out Nicolas Bertolo, Abel Hernandez, Andrea Mantovani and Massimo Donati.

The injured Federico Balzaretti, Matias Silvestre and Aguirregaray complete the absentee list, so the defence is completely revamped.

Fabrizio Miccoli returns after he missed the 3-1 win at Bologna on compassionate leave when his father-in-law was taken ill.

Palermo: Viviano; Munoz, Milanovic, Labrin; Pisano, Migliaccio, Barreto, Della Rocca, Acquah; Ilicic, Miccoli

Palermo bench: Tzorvas, Kosnic, Bacinovic, Alvarez, Vazquez, Zahavi, Budan

Juventus: Buffon; Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini; Caceres, Vidal, Pirlo, Marchisio, Estigarribia; Vucinic, Quagliarella

Juventus bench: Storari, Lichtsteiner, Giaccherini, Pepe, Borriello, Matri, Del Piero
