Line-ups: Sampdoria-Juventus

Juventus conclude their season at Marassi against the only team they haven’t been able to beat – Sampdoria.

The Bianconeri have already secured the Scudetto, but are out for revenge in Genoa at 19.45 UK time. Click here for a match preview.

Samp caused a huge upset in January when they won 2-1 in Turin despite going down to 10 men.

Mauro Icardi scored a brace that day and will be eager to break his two-month goal drought this evening, as he is on the verge of a summer switch to Inter.

Renan sits out a two-match ban, while Nenad Krsticic, Jonathan Rossini and Andrea Costa are out of action.

Andrea Poli could well be making his last appearance in the Blucerchiati jersey, as he has been heavily linked with both Juve and Milan.

Juventus are without the banned Paul Pogba, while Kwadwo Asamoah and Simone Pepe are on the treatment table. Andrea Barzagli is only fit enough for the bench.

Gigi Buffon is again rested so that Marco Storari can take centre stage and there are other changes to give smaller figures a chance to start.

The last time Juventus won away to Samp was 1-0 in March 2006, followed by three draws and a defeat.

Sampdoria: Da Costa; Mustafi, Gastaldello, Castellini; De Silvestri, Poli, Palombo, Obiang, Estigarribia; Eder, Icardi
