Conte faces attacking dilemma

Juventus boss Antonio Conte will reportedly use a 3-5-2 formation against Milan – but who will play up front?

The tactician has fielded a variety of systems so far this season, yet it is being suggested that he has opted for a three-match defence rather than a 4-3-3 shape ahead of this weekend’s Scudetto clash.

As a result, the tactician will now have to decide whom he uses in attack given the Old Lady’s recent problems in that area.

After two consecutive 0-0 draws, Conte fielded Marco Borriello and Fabio Quagliarella from the start in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Catania.

Tuttosport is today reporting that Mirko Vucinic, who began on the bench last week, is in pole position for a starting shirt.

However, it is unclear at this stage who will partner the summer signing from Roma. The possibilities are: Quagliarella, Borriello, Alessandro Matri or Alex Del Piero.

Milan, Napoli, Lazio, Palermo and Roma have all scored more League goals than the Bianconeri’s 36 so far this term.

Leaders Milan and Juventus, currently a point behind with a game in hand, will meet at the San Siro on Saturday night.
