Line-ups: Juventus-Genoa

Paul Pogba, Mirko Vucinic and Fabio Quagliarella lead Juventus out against Genoa on Coach Davide Ballardini’s debut.

The Bianconeri aim to maintain or even extend their lead at the top of the table when taking on the Grifone at 19.45 GMT. Click here for a match preview.

Andrea Pirlo, Giorgio Chiellini, Simone Pepe and Nicklas Bendtner are still out injured, so Pogba is again picked in midfield.

Quagliarella steps in after recovering from a muscular problem, as birthday boy Sebastian Giovinco is not 100 per cent fit.

Genoa make their debut under Coach Ballardini, who is their third tactician of the campaign after Gigi De Canio and Gigi Del Neri.

He has to do without Bosko Jankovic and Juan Manuel Vargas for this trip to Turin, where Genoa haven’t won in 22 years.

Ciro Immobile, who is co-owned by Juventus, is chosen to partner new arrival Antonio Floro Flores.

Juventus: Buffon; Barzagli, Bonucci, Caceres; Lichtsteiner, Vidal, Pogba, Marchisio, De Ceglie; Quagliarella, Vucinic

Juventus bench: Storari, Rubinho, Peluso, Marrone, Padoin, Giaccherini, Isla, Beltrame, Giovinco
