Juventus welcome Catania this evening with Marco Borriello and Fabio Quagliarella in the starting XI.
The Bianconeri are in second place, albeit with a game in hand, and still unbeaten in all competition this season.
Recent form has been stuttering, held to two consecutive stalemates by Siena and Parma.
Arturo Vidal sits out a ban, joining the injured Luca Marrone, while Alessandro Del Piero is on the bench after recovering from flu symptoms.
Quagliarella and Borriello are given rare starts in attack with Paolo De Ceglie moved up to wide midfield in a 3-5-2 system.
Catania demolished Genoa 4-0 last weekend and have a generally strong away record this term.
Andrea Campagnolo, David Suazo, Alessandro Potenza and Ciro Capuano miss out on this match, but the Sicilians can count on former Juve men Marco Motta, Sergio Almiron and Nicola Legrottaglie.
