Line-ups: Juventus-Catania

Antonio Conte refused to speak to the media in the build-up to this game, despite ending the negative streak with a 2-0 win over Genoa on Sunday.

He is still without Mirko Vucinic, Fabio Quagliarella, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Simone Pepe.

Tevez and Llorente again lead the line, but Mauricio Isla, Martin Caceres and Paolo De Ceglie step in, while Paul Pogba is rested.

Catania sacked Rolando Maran last week and made their debut under new Coach De Canio on Sunday, scraping a 0-0 draw with Sassuolo.

He has to do without Jiroslav Plasil, Nicolas Spolli, Giuseppe Bellusci, Monzon, Kingsley Boateng and Pablo Barrientos, so reshuffles his side.

Mariano Izco is only fit for the Catania bench, while 19-year-old Bruno Petkovic is a surprise starter.

It is also a reunion, as Conte worked as De Canio’s assistant manager at Siena in 2005-06.

Juventus: Buffon; Caceres, Bonucci, Chiellini; Isla, Vidal, Pirlo, Marchisio, De Ceglie; Tevez, Llorente

Catania: Andujar; Rolin, Legrottaglie, Gyomber; Alvarez, Guarente, Almiron, Keko, Biraghi; Petkovic, Bergessio
