UCL: Juve coach Allegri names one club he wants to avoid - FCNaija

Juventus manager Max Allegri is expected to drop Paulo Dybala and Douglas Costa for Saturday’s Derby d’Italia against Inter Milan with a 3-5-2 or 4-3-3 formation.

Old Lady faces Nerazzurri at San Siro on Saturday with the hope not giving up the top spot position as closes rival Napoli goes away to Fiorentina at the weekend.

Juventus coach Allegri is tempted to ring the changes following two disappointing performances against Crotone and Napoli with just one point from two games, their lead at the top of the table has been sliced to one point and there are four rounds to go.

According to Football Italia, Dybala and Costa could be dropped from the starting XI and the system moved to 3-5-2, although it could remain as 4-3-3 with Benedikt Howedes cutting inside as Alex Sandro moves up.

Andrea Barzagli is the favourite to step in for injured Chiellini rather than Daniele Rugani and it’s believed Mario Mandzukic will partner Gonzalo Higuain in attack with Juan Cuadrado a good option on the right.

The midfield three or Sami Khedira, Miralem Pjanic and Blaise Matuidi remain untouched and Giorgio Chiellini, Mattia De Sciglio and Stefano Sturaro are out
