Pazienza in for Marchisio

Michele Pazienza is set to make his first start for Juventus on Tuesday night against former cub Napoli.

The 29-year-old joined the Old Lady in the summer from the Naples outfit once his contract at the San Paolo expired.

Pazienza has so far made five substitute appearances for the Turin giants this season, totalling 57 minutes.

However, Claudio Marchisio is suspended for tomorrow’s Serie A tie and Sky Sport Italia insist that Pazienza will be brought into the team.

The central midfielder, formerly of Udinese, joined the Azzurri in January of 2008 from Fiorentina for just under €5m.
