Maurizio Sarri’s Juventus moved eight points clear at the top of the table thanks to two handball penalties, which held Atalanta to a 2-2 draw.

They can also thank Sassuolo, who completed a comeback to beat Lazio 2-1 on Saturday with a late Francesco Caputo goal.

That was the Neroverdi’s fourth consecutive victory and they are eager to keep the run going against a Juve side who have been rattled of late.

Berardi, Boga and Filip Djuricic fan out behind hitman Caputo, while Rogerio – who had a very nasty knock to the head during training yesterday that saw him taken to hospital – Gregoire Defrel, Pedro Obiang and Filippo Romagna are out injured.

Juventus miss suspended Juan Cuadrado, so Danilo moves to right-back, bringing Alex Sandro back on the left, but above all Giorgio Chiellini giving Leonardo Bonucci a rest.

Miralem Pjanic also returns, with Federico Bernardeschi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Higuain upfront, resting Paulo Dybala.

Mattia De Sciglio and Sami Khedira are on the treatment table.

Sassuolo: Consigli; Muldur, Chiriches, Peluso, Kyriakopoulos; Magnanelli, Locatelli; Berardi, Djuricic, Boga; Caputo

Juventus: Szczesny; Danilo, De Ligt, Chiellini, Alex Sandro; Bentancur, Pjanic, Matuidi; Bernardeschi, Higuain, Ronaldo
