After dropping their first points of the Serie A campaign last weekend, Juventus will be looking to return to winning ways when they face Empoli on Saturday.
The Bianconeri were held by Genoa at home last time out in a surprise result, although they do still boast a four-point lead over their nearest rivals after nine games.
As for Empoli, they look set for a relegation battle this season as they sit in the bottom three with just one win from their opening nine.
They’ll have to find a way to keep Cristiano Ronaldo quiet as the marquee summer signing has overcome a slow start to emerge as the talisman that Juventus had hoped they were bringing in.
The Portuguese superstar has bagged five goals and five assists in just nine Serie A games so far this season and he will undoubtedly be the danger man for the visitors.
Nevertheless, given the quality and depth at Coach Max Allegri’s disposal, with the likes of Paulo Dybala, Federico Bernardeschi and Douglas Costa to deal with, Empoli will certainly have their hands full this weekend.
