Juventus welcome Chievo to Turin and adopt a 4-3-3 system with Alessandro Matri, Mirko Vucinic and Emanuele Giaccherini.
The Bianconeri still have a game in hand and need a victory to keep up with Serie A leaders Milan.
Simone Pepe and Arturo Vidal both sit out bans, while Milos Krasic is again dropped.
There were rumours Alessandro Del Piero would be granted a rare start, but he is on the bench instead.
Antonio Conte moves to a 4-3-3 approach with Giaccherini completing the attacking trident alongside Matri and Vucinic.
Chievo are missing their all-time top scorer Sergio Pellissier due to suspension, so Alberto Paloschi takes the reins in attack with Cyril Thereau.
Defenders Santiago Morero and Nikola Gulan miss out.
