Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini remains a doubt for Sunday, after picking up a hamstring injury during the 2-1 win over Napoli last week.
Left-back Patrice Evra is also unavailable for selection having missed the last three games for the Bianconeri with a suspected calf strain.
Head coach Massimiliano Allegri won’t be expected to make too many changes for the trip to Verona, with Brazilian full-back Dani Alves likely to be recalled to the line-up.
Meanwhile, Chievo have no new injury worries ahead of the weekend with Slovenian midfielder Valter Birsa set to spearhead the attack behind the front pairing of Antonio Floro and Roberto Inglese.
Juventus look to extend their lead at the top of Serie A, when they take on hosts Chievo Verona at the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi on Sunday afternoon.
The Old Lady responded well after their defeat to AC Milan last month, with back-to-back wins over Sampdoria and Napoli. However, Massimiliano Allegri’s side couldn’t produce the same in Europe, who were held to a 1-1 draw by French outfit Lyonaiss in Turin.
Gonzalo Higuain will be the man to watch at the weekend, having scored in successive games and is Bianconeri’s leading goal scorer in the league with seven goals.
On the other hand, the hosts head into the weekend without a win in their last four league matches, which included a shock 2-0 defeat to bottom of the table Crotone last week.
Rolando Maran’s side currently sit 11th in Serie A, and the manager will be expecting an immediate response against the reigning champions.
However, Chievo are certain underdogs against their weekend opponents, having beaten Juventus only once in their last 26 league attempts, going back to the 1-0 win at the Bentegodi in 2010.
In the previous fixture last season, Juventus ran riot in a 4-0 victory against the flying donkeys; and they’ll be overwhelming favorites again at the weekend who have won seven out of their last eight meetings against the Verona outfit.
