Conte to make Juve changes?

Juventus boss Antonio Conte could make some alterations to his preferred starting XI for the game against Cesena on Sunday.

According to some reports on Friday, the tactician will ponder resting some key players ahead of the Week 15 trip to Roma.

Conte is already without the suspended Andrea Pirlo, but a few other first team regulars could be left out of the team too.

Simone Pepe, Leonardo Bonucci and Arturo Vidal may be amongst those rested as they are one booking away from a suspension.

Giorgio Chiellini is also a yellow card away from a ban, but he may start in the middle of defence alongside Andrea Barzagli. That will allow Paolo De Ceglie to start on the left.

There is also the possibility that Fabio Quagliarella may be handed his first start of the season at the expense of Mirko Vucinic.

Conte used a 3-5-2 system at Napoli during the 3-3 draw in midweek, but he’s expected to revert back to a 4-3-3 this weekend which has proved successful recently.
