Line-ups: Torino vs. Juventus

Juventus are forced to radically reshuffle, and the pressure is on in the Turin Derby, as Torino use Antonio Sanabria and Andrea Belotti.

It kicks off at 17.00 UK time (16.00 GMT), you can follow all the build-up and action as it happens on the LIVEBLOG.

This has been a rough couple of weeks for Andrea Pirlo, whose job was put in doubt after a shock 1-0 home defeat to Benevento effectively ended Scudetto hopes.

The rescheduled game with Napoli is coming up on Wednesday, but to make matters worse, Gigi Buffon was given a one-match ban for using a blasphemous phrase, while Leonardo Bonucci and Merih Demiral contracted COVID on international duty.

The club dropped Weston McKennie, Paulo Dybala and Arthur Melo after they were caught breaking lockdown rules during a party at the American midfielder’s house.It means Pirlo has precious few options to choose from, with Danilo in a more advanced role.

Federico Chiesa supports Alvaro Morata and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Torino are just one point clear of the relegation zone, but since Davide Nicola replaced Marco Giampaolo, they have been transformed and benefit from a never say die attitude.It’s an all-attack approach with Antonio Sanabria and Andrea Belotti upfront, plus ex-Juve midfielders Rolando Mandragora and Tomas Rincon.

Wilfried Singo and Lyanco are the only players on the injury list, as Cristian Ansaldi has recovered from a stomach bug.

Torino:Sirigu; Izzo, Buongiorno, Bremer; Vojvoda, Rincon, Mandragora, Ansaldi; Verdi; Sanabria, Belotti

Juventus:Szczesny; Cuadrado, De Ligt, Chiellini, Alex Sandro; Kulusevski, Bentancur, Danilo, Chiesa; Morata, Ronaldo
