Juventus travel to Genoa in a high-profile lunchtime kick-off at Marassi with Milos Krasic back in the starting XI.
Both sides are badly affected by injuries and bans, so have precious few options to choose from.
Davide Ballardini has to do without Bosko Jankovic, Chico, Raffaele Palladino and Giuseppe Sculli, while Houssine Kharja and Rudolf are not 100 per cent fit.
This means Luca Toni leads the attack with support from the versatile Giandomenico Mesto.
Juventus miss the suspended Simone Pepe along with Amauri, Gigi Buffon, Paolo De Ceglie, Zdenek Grygera, Nicola Legrottaglie, Leandro Rinaudo and Jorge Martinez.
Alessandro Del Piero is benched, as he needs to be fit for the midweek Europa League test, so Vincenzo Iaquinta partners Fabio Quagliarella.
Krasic returns after a two-match ban for diving, followed by a thigh strain. Gigi Del Neri said he would not play the Serb if there was any risk.
Genoa: Eduardo; Ranocchia, Dainelli, Kaladze; Rafinha, M Rossi, Milanetto, Miguel Veloso, Criscito; Mesto; Toni
