Livorno will be tough, says Marchisio

Claudio Marchisio expects his Juventus side to be tested by Livorno in Serie A on Sunday.

“We know that we will be going there in a bit of an emergency,” the midfielder told Sky Sport Italia.

“However, I’m convinced that whoever steps out on to the pitch for us will give us their best in a game that won’t be easy.

“My role? I’m at the total disposal of the Coach and I’ll play wherever he needs me to play.”

The Old Lady, just one point behind leaders Roma, will travel to the Stadio Picchi without a host of first-team regulars.

Leonardo Bonucci and Angelo Ogbonna are suspended, while Andrea Barzagli remains a doubt. Stephan Lichtsteiner, Simone Pepe and Mauricio Isla will play no part in the tie.

Boss Antonio Conte could opt for a 4-3-3 with Simone Padoin being used as an emergency right-back. Marchisio may play on the right of a front three.
