Line-ups: Atalanta-Juventus

Juventus bring Giorgio Chiellini back into central defence, as they make only one change to face Atalanta this evening.

The Bianconeri will be crowned Winter champions if they manage to get a victory at the Stadio Azzurri d’Italia, something only Milan have achieved so far this season.

Their only absentees are Fabio Quagliarella and Eljero Elia, but Antonio Conte makes just one change from the side that was held 1-1 by Cagliari last week.

Chiellini returns from suspension and is redirected to central defence in place of Leonardo Bonucci, therefore keeping Paolo De Ceglie as full-back.

Marco Borriello and Milos Krasic find a spot on the bench, though Marcelo Estigarribia is sent to the stands.

This is a special game for Conte, who was in charge of Atalanta in 2009-10 before he was fired.

Atalanta are without Giampaolo Bellini and Daniele Capelli, while Stefano Lucchini and Carlos Carmona sit out bans.

Maxi Moralez gets the nod to partner German Denis in attack, leaving Under-21 international Manolo Gabbiadini on the bench.

Atalanta: Consigli; Raimondi, Ferri, Manfredini, Peluso; Schelotto, Cigarini, Padoin, Bonaventura; Moralez, Denis
Atalanta bench:Frezzolini, Stendardo, Gabbiadini, Ferreira Pinto, Minotti, Marilungo, Tiribocchi
Juventus: Buffon; Lichtsteiner, Barzagli, Chiellini, De Ceglie; Vidal, Pirlo, Marchisio; Pepe, Matri, Vucinic.
Juventus bench:Storari, Bonucci, Marrone, Krasic, Giaccherini, Del Piero, Borriello
