Line-ups: Genoa-Juventus

Juventus have Alessandri Matri and Martin Caceres back in the side against Marco Borriello and Ciro Immobile’s Genoa.

The Turin giants are rotating the squad a little bit ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League opener at Chelsea.

Mirko Vucinic is rested in favour of a new Matri-Sebastian Giovinco partnership, while Caceres and Paolo De Ceglie give Stefan Lichtsteiner and Pablo Armero a breather.

Lucio and Mauricio Isla are back on the bench for the first time this season after injuries, joined by new buy Nicklas Bendtner.

Both Genoa strikers Borriello and Immobile have a history playing for Juventus and are therefore eager to make a good impression.

It’s Borriello’s first Serie A start since returning to Marassi from Roma this summer, while Bosko Jankovic completes the trident attack.

Sampirisi is a surprise starter in defence, while Cristobal Jorquera and Alexander Merkel are benched.

Genoa: Frey; Sampirisi, Canini, Bovo, Antonelli; Kucka, Seymour, Bertolacci; Jankovic, Borriello, Immobile

Genoa bench: Tzorvas, Granqvist, Moretti, Ferronetti, Toszer, Melazzi, Stilo, Merkel, Piscitella, Anselmo, Jorquera

Juventus: Buffon; Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini; Caceres, Giaccherini, Pirlo, Marchisio, De Ceglie; Giovinco, Matri

Juventus bench: Storari, Rubinho, Lichtsteiner, Lucio, Isla, Pogba, Vidal, Marrone, Asamoah, Vucinic, Bendtner, Quagliarella
