Line-ups: Juventus v Verona

Juventus give Paulo Dybala his first start in three months, partnering Alvaro Morata, Federico Bernardeschi and Aaron Ramsey against Nikola Kalinic’s Hellas Verona.

It kicks off at 19.45 GMT, you can follow all the build-up and action as it happens on the LIVEBLOG.

The Bianconeri have stuttered in Serie A so far under coach Andrea Pirlo, drawing with Roma and Crotone, with three points awarded by default for the cancelled game against Napoli.

Their form was better midweek in the Champions League, winning 2-0 away to Dynamo Kiev with a Morata brace.

Cristiano Ronaldo is still testing positive for COVID-19, while Alex Sandro, Matthijs de Ligt and Giorgio Chiellini are injured, plus Federico Chiesa suspended following his red card in Crotone.

Weston McKennie has now recovered from Coronavirus and is on the bench, but the big news is Dybala’s first start in three months, creating a new partnership with Morata, supported by Ramsey and Bernardeschi.

Verona have conceded only one goal in Serie A this season, continuing the solid work shown by coach Ivan Juric last term, even if the personnel has changed a great deal.

Miguel Veloso, Mert Cetin, Koray Gunter, Marco Benassi and Samuel Di Carmine are injured, with Eddie Salcedo reportedly left out for not showing the right attitude in training.

Nikola Kalinic therefore gets his first start for Hellas, with Mattia Zaccagni and Ebrima Colley in support.
