Line-ups: Cagliari-Juventus

Juventus have Alessandro Matri, Simone Pepe and Mirko Vucinic leading the way as they could clinch the Scudetto tonight against Cagliari.

The Bianconeri will mathematically be crowned champions of Italy this evening if they win and Milan fail to beat Inter in the derby.

Paolo De Ceglie is the only player on the treatment table, as Simone Pepe returns to the starting XI after his ankle problem.

Matri faces his former teammates at the Stadio Nereo Rocco in Trieste, where Cagliari are now playing their home games due to restructuring work at the Stadio Sant’Elia.

The Bianconeri are adopting a 3-5-2 system with Pepe, Matri and Vucinic.

Cagliari are safely mid-table, but Alessandro Agostini is suspended with Daniele Dessena, Rui Sampaio, Sebastian Eriksson and Moustafa El Kabir injured.

They too have an exciting trident with South Americans Victor Ibarbo, Mauricio Pinilla and Thiago Ribeiro.

Many of the team worked under Milan Coach Massimiliano Allegri and are therefore eager to help him win the Scudetto.

Juventus: Buffon; Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini; Pepe, Vidal, Pirlo, Marchisio, Lichtsteiner; Matri, Vucinic

Juventus bench: Storari, Caceres, Estigarribia, Giaccherini, Quagliarella, Del Piero, Borriello

Cagliari: Agazzi; Ariaudo, Canini, Astori, Pisano; Ekdal, Conti, Nainggolan; Ibarbo, Pinilla, Thiago Ribeiro
