Allegri's Juventus XI in Cesena

Juventus have already named their starting XI against Cesena tomorrow, including Andrea Pirlo and Stephan Lichtsteiner.

The Bianconeri will play the newly-promoted side at the Stadio Dino Manuzzi on Wednesday evening.

Coach Massimiliano Allegri has released his initial line-up for the pre-season friendly.

Carlos Tevez is not included, as he is on leave following the kidnap and release of his father in Argentina.

Gigi Buffon has also been left behind, apparently due to injury, so Marco Storari and Sebastian Giovinco start.

This is the second game under Allegri, the other being a shock 3-2 defeat to amateur side Lucento.

New signing Roberto Pereyra will start after his move from Udinese, while Allegri continues to test the four-man defence.

Many will be curious to see where the Coach places Pirlo, as a discussion over his position prompted the midfielder to quit Milan when Allegri was in charge.

Juventus: Storari, Sorensen, Bonucci, Chiellini, Lichtsteiner, Padoin, Pirlo, Pereyra, Motta, Giovinco, Llorente
