Line-ups: Juventus-Cagliari

Juventus have already secured the Scudetto, but are now targeting Fabio Capello’s points record as Alessandro Matri leads the way against Cagliari.

The Bianconeri will be presented with the Serie A title trophy after the final whistle of today’s 17.00 UK time kick-off in Turin. Click here for a match preview.

They beat Atalanta in the midweek round despite rotating the squad and aim to keep up the standard so they can surpass Capello’s record of 91 points in the 2005-06 campaign.

Having won the last nine on the bounce, Juve go into this game without the suspended Andrea Pirlo and Paul Pogba.

Kwadwo Asamoah, Nicklas Bendtner and Simone Pepe are injured, while Andrea Barzagli is back after minor fitness problems.

Gigi Buffon is again rested so Marco Storari can take some of the glory in goal, while Sebastian Giovinco partners Matri.

Youngster Luca Marrone gets the rare opportunity to start in midfield, as he tends to be used as a centre-back by Juve despite playing in Pirlo’s role for the Italy Under-21 side.

Cagliari clinched their mathematical safety and have a full squad to choose from, as Francesco Pisano is the only absentee.

Mauricio Pinilla starts after his three-match ban was reduced to two on appeal, joining the pacy Victor Ibarbo.

Juventus: Storari; Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini; Isla, Vidal, Marrone, Marchisio, Giaccherini; Giovinco, Matri

Juventus bench: Buffon, Rubinho, Caceres, Vucinic, De Ceglie, Peluso, Anelka, Padoin, Lichtsteiner, Quagliarella

Cagliari: Agazzi; Perico, Rossettini, Astori; Murru, Dessena, Conti, Ekdal, Nainggolan; Pinilla, Ibarbo

Cagliari bench: Avramov, Del Fabro, Eriksson, Cossu, Thiago Ribeiro, Nenè, Sau
