Juventus set for changes

Juventus boss Antonio Conte could make some substantial changes to the side for this weekend’s trip to Palermo.

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, the tactician may decide on as many as five alterations to the team which beat Shakhtar Donetsk 1-0 on Wednesday.

The Old Lady will definitely be without Sebastian Giovinco as he is suspended, but Stephan Lichtsteiner, Kwadwo Asamoah, Arturo Vidal and Mirko Vucinic may be allowed to catch their breath.

They could be replaced in the side by Mauricio Isla, Paolo De Ceglie, Claudio Marchisio – who was banned in midweek – Alessandro Matri and Fabio Quagliarella.

Conte will return to the sidelines on Sunday as his ban will expire tomorrow.
