Juve-Bologna probable line-ups

Juventus boss Antonio Conte will make changes to his preferred starting XI when the Old Lady host Bologna in the Coppa Italia on Thursday.

The tactician confirmed in a Press conference on Wednesday that he would use the tie to give some of his fringe players the chance to impress.

Marco Storari will start in goal, Frederik Sorensen is expected to come into defence and Milos Krasic will return to the team after being dropped.

Fabio Quagliarella is being tipped to start in attack after being used as a substitute so far in Serie A this term.

Conte will make a late decision on the potential use of Alex Del Piero after he was given the green light to play after a cut to the face at the weekend.

Juventus (probable): Storari; Sorensen, Bonucci, Chiellini, De Ceglie; Marrone, Pazienza, Giaccherini; Krasic, Quagliarella, Estigarribia.

Bologna (probable): Agliardi; Garics, Crespo, Raggi, Portanova; Pulzetti, Perez, Taider; Gimenez, Paponi; Acquafresca.
