Just like with any customary international break, we knew we’d be without Juventus for a couple of weeks around the new year. It’s Serie A’s annual winter break — yes, even if it was pushed back until after Christmas and New Year’s Day this season. Massimiliano Allegri will be without a handful of his players for the Italian crunch clash. Benedikt Howedes, Gianluigi Buffon and Juan Cuadrado are all unavailable for selection due to injury.

Juve are still just one point behind currently leaders Napoli heading into the weekend and again have the chance to go top should they defeat Genoa and the Partenopei fail to beat Atalanta. Napoli face Atalanta at 12.30 on Sunday while Juve and Genoa are set for a 20.45 kick-off on Monday night.
