Line-ups: Juventus-Atalanta

Alessandro Del Piero starts in his final game at the Juventus Stadium, wearing the captain’s armband against Atalanta.

The veteran’s contract expires next month and the only remaining official fixture of the season is the Coppa Italia Final with Napoli at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome on May 20.

Coach Antonio Conte confirmed he would give Del Piero a spot in the starting XI and the armband as the Turin giants celebrate the Scudetto.

This game will be followed by the presentation of the Serie A trophy, then a tour through the streets of the city in an open-topped bus, which is expected to see 100,000 fans flock to celebrate.

There is almost a full squad to choose from, as Paolo De Ceglie is injured and Arturo Vidal sits out a ban.

Marco Storari, Marcelo Estigarribia, Luca Marrone, Simone Padoin and Marco Borriello are given rare starts to join in the Scudetto party.

The team can make history by ending the season unbeaten and taking the title, something only ever achieved by Fabio Capello’s Milan in 1991-92 in a 34-round Serie A.

Atalanta are already safe from the drop, though Guglielmo Stendardo is suspended with Matteo Brighi, Guido Marilungo, Daniele Capelli, Andrea Consigli and Simone Tiribocchi sidelined.

Juventus: Storari; Lichtsteiner, Bonucci, Chiellini, Estigarribia; Marrone, Pirlo, Padoin; Giaccherini, Borriello, Del Piero

Juventus bench: Manninger, Barzagli, Marchisio, Pepe, Vucinic, Matri, Quagliarella

Atalanta: Frezzolini; Bellini, Lucchini, Manfredini, Peluso; Schelotto, Carmona, Cazzola, Bonaventura; Moralez; Denis

Atalanta bench: Polito, Ferri, Cigarini, Raimondi, Tiribocchi, Minotti, Gabbiadini
