Line-ups: Juventus-Roma

Juventus look to Alessandro Matri and Mirko Vucinic as they welcome Roma’s Francesco Totti, Erik Lamela and Pablo Daniel Osvaldo.

Tonight’s 19.45 UK time kick-off is an epic grudge match, made even stronger by the presence of Juve’s decades-old ‘enemy’ Zdenek Zeman. There are reports the stewards around the Roma bench have been trebled to ensure the Czech’s safety.

The Bianconeri have a Champions League tie with Shakhtar Donetsk coming up, so rest Sebastian Giovinco and Fabio Quagliarella.

Vucinic returns to face his former club, joined by Matri and Claudio Marchisio. Only Simone Pepe is still on the treatment table, but Paolo De Ceglie and Martin Caceres take the wings.

Roma have a very impressive away record, but have stuttered at home this season, so hope to continue that trend in Turin.

Miralem Pjanic, Bogdan Lobont, Dodo and Michael Bradley are still out of action, but Osvaldo returns from an injury lay-off to start in the trident with Totti and Lamela.

This sends Mattia Destro and Nico Lopez to the bench.
