Line-ups: Siena-Juventus

Despite expectations, Nicklas Bendtner does not get his first Juventus start against Antonio Conte’s old club Siena.

The Stadio Artemio Franchi fixture kicks off at 14.00 BST and you can watch this and other Serie A games LIVE on your computer.

Conte saw his 10-month ban reduced to four on appeal this week, but as part of the same investigation Siena have a six-point penalty.

Leonardo Bonucci sits out a ban, so Luca Marrone takes over at centre-back rather than Lucio.

Juve were expected to rest some of their stars and give Bendtner his first start, but it’s the usual line-up with Andrea Pirlo, Arturo Vidal, Mirko Vucinic and Sebastian Giovinco.

Siena have to do without the injured Gaetano D’Agostino and Matteo Contini, forcing changes in midfield. Alessandro Rosina and Ze Eduardo support Emanuele Calaio'.

Siena: Pegolo; Neto, Paci, Felipe; Angelo, Vergassola, Rodriguez, Del Grosso; Rosina, Ze Eduardo; Calaio'

Siena bench: Farelli, Campagnolo, Dellafiore, Rubin, Reginaldo, Mannini, Verre, Sestu, Bolzoni, Paolucci, Bogdani, Valiani

Juventus: Buffon; Barzagli, Marrone, Chiellini; Lichtsteiner, Vidal, Pirlo, Marchisio, De Ceglie; Vucinic, Giovinco

Juventus bench: Storari, Rubinho, Lucio, Caceres, Isla, Padoin, Pogba, Giaccherini, Asamoah, Bendtner, Quagliarella, Matri
