The Sky Sport team, however, is always on the piece, ready to give us the latest updates on injuries and run-offs. Here is the team-by-team situation.
To have even clearer ideas on alignments, injured, disqualified and jersey numbers, we also refer you to our "Campetti".
SASSUOLO-BOLOGNA, Friday 8:45 pm
Sassuolo, Traore away. Obiang out
Important absence for De Zerbi in the middle of the field. Against Bologna will lack Obiang due disqualification and you will not even be Traore, engaged with the national under 23. Locatelli and Magnanelli therefore hope to support Duncan. In attack Caputo goes towards ownership. The usual doubt remains: 4-3-3 or system with the playmaker? Defrel (or a more advanced Djuricic) in the first case, Boga in the second. Marlon trained separately but the last test was positive
SASSUOLO (4-3-3) probable formation: Advice; Toljan, Marlon Romagna, Kyriakopoulos; Locatelli, Magnanelli, Duncan; Berardi, Caputo, Boga
Bologna, not called Soriano and Santander
After the break there may be important returns in the rossoblu defense. To date, however, the external lanes have only its interpreters: Mbaye on the right and Krejci on the left. There will still be them in the derby. In median there is Medel in pole while in attack there are two important defections to report: non-summoned Santander and Sansone. Possible advancement on the trocar of Svanberg while in attack also Destro is out. The only option is to deploy Palacio.
BOLOGNA (4-2-3-1) probable formation: Skorupski; Mbaye, Danilo, Bani, Krejci; Poli, Medel; Orsolini, Svanberg, Sansone; Palacio
BRESCIA-TORINO, Saturday 3 pm
Will Brescia, with Grosso, defend 4 or 3?
In his last experience in Verona, Fabio Grosso almost always used the 4 defense but at the time of Bari he didn't disdain the 3-5-2. Clearly his preferences will emerge in the press conference but it may be that his Brescia may return to the old with Sabelli and Martella "low". Behind, in any case, favored Gastaldello. In the median Ndoj can hope. Torregrossa towards a place on the bench.
BRESCIA (4-3-1-2) probable formation: Joronen; Sabelli, Cistana, Gastaldello, Martella; Bisoli, Tonali, Ndoj; Romulo; Balotelli, A. Donnarumma
Turin, injury to Baselli
Victim of a sprained ankle, Baselli risks losing the trip to Brescia. The midfielder was back from the challenge, as a starter, against Juventus. We try to recover it in extremis. Mazzarri can instead return to count on Nkoulou who, having taken his suspension, will resume his position at the center of the defense. Lyanco and Bremer play the third jersey back there. Open ballot also in attack (Zaza or Verdi?) While in the right lane De Silvestri could come up.
TURIN (3-5-2) probable formation: Sirigu; Izzo, Nkoulou, Lyanco; De Silvestri, Rincon, Lukic, Meite, Ansaldi; Verdi, Belotti
INTER-VERONA, Saturday 6 pm
Inter, Sensi from the bench. In strong doubt Asamoah
After entering the current race against Borussia Dortmund, Stefano Sensi seemed destined for a starting shirt against Verona, but, at the moment, this is not the case: the trio Barella-Brozovic-Vecino favored. Politano in the Champions League remained on the field despite an injury that forced him to stop for a while. With only Esposito available probabilissima confirmation for "Lautaku". In defense they could have a chance Ranocchia or Bastoni. Asamoah is recovering from muscle aches and is in doubt. Today it is more no than yes. Lazaro and Biraghi play a jersey
INTER (3-5-2) Probable formation: Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni; Lazaro, Vecino, Brozovic, Barella, Candreva; Lukaku, Lautaro
Verona, Juric loses two important players
At San Siro, the challenge is not really simple for Juric's Verona, which will have to do without both Kumbulla and Veloso. The two are in the pits due to a problem with the left calf (Veloso) and the biceps femoris of the right thigh (Kumbulla). There is therefore a need to redesign defense and midfield. Behind should be Dawidowicz's turn while Pessina is a candidate in the middle. Salcedo towards the confirmation even if Stepinski and Di Carmine are still hoping for a starting shirt.
VERONA (3-4-2-1) probable formation: Silvestri, Rrahmani, Dawidowicz, Gunter; Faraoni, Amrabat, Pessina, Lazovic; Verre, Zaccagni; Salcedo
NAPLES-GENOA, Saturday at 8.45pm
Naples Manolas with fever. In two apart
In light of what happened after the challenge in the Champions League against Salzburg it is really difficult for someone not to "pay" the post-Salzburg rebellion. Clearly, Naples cannot allow for further false steps, but training news could be surprising. Yesterday Manolas did not train due to fever while Allan and Mario Rui worked apart before doing the rest of the work with the team.
NAPLES (4-4-2) probable formation: Meret; Di Lorenzo, Luperto, Koulibaly, Mario Rui; Callejon, Ruiz, Elmas, Zielinski; Milik, Lozano.
Genoa, in group Criscito and Favilli
Thiago Motta finds Cassata after the disqualification. He is the number one candidate in the median but the good news is not over: Criscito and Favilli have met again on the field. Obviously neither of them has found the perfect shape but both could be called up for Naples. Kouame, unlike Traore, has already left to join the Costa D’Avorio Under 23 and must be replaced. With external Agudelo, there can be Saponara behind Pinamonti
GENOA (4-2-3-1) probable formation: Radu; Ghiglione, Romero, Zapata, Ankersen; Schone, Cassata; Pandev, Saponara, Agudelo; Pinamonti
CAGLIARI-FIORENTINA, Sunday 12:30
Cagliari, Pellegrini returns to the left
Cragno and Pavoletti will be the only ones absent certain of the Sunday lunchtime challenge. In fact Ceppitelli and Birsa could return to work even if they worked separately in the middle of the week. In defense towards the confirmation the duo Klavan-Pisacane (with Ceppitelli from the bench). Luca Pellegrini returns to the left instead. In the median there could be two rotations with Oliva and Castro not very sure of the place in the titular XI. The Nainggolan-Joao Pedro-Simeone triangle should not be changed.
CAGLIARI (4-3-1-2) probable formation: Olsen; Faragò, Pisacane, Klavan, Pellegrini; Nandez, Cigarini, Rog; Nainggolan; Simeon, Joao Pedro.
Fiorentina, a return and a couple of ballots
In Cagliari Montella finds Pezzella returning after the stop shift imposed by the sports judge. Ribery, on the other hand, must serve the last day of disqualification. In front of us there will certainly be Church with Vlahovic and Boateng playing the place. On the right, Lirola returns, while in defense Caceres is still out. For third place in the back line is a runoff between Ranieri and Venuti.
FIORENTINA (3-5-2) probable formation: Dragowski; Milenkovic, Pezzella, Ranieri; Lirola, Pulgar, Badelj, Castrovilli, Dalbert; Church, Boateng
LAZIO-LECCE, Sunday at 3 pm
Lazio, Inzaghi in full emergency?
No Europa League for Marusic, Radu and Correa. Caicedo played against Celtic despite a minor shoulder problem. In attack, however, there is also Correa who stopped training due to severe pain in the calf. Training that is therefore a real puzzle. Considering the various alternatives, there is also the possibility that Luis Alberto goes back to pairing with Immobile.
LAZIO (3-5-2) probable formation: Strakosha; Patric, Acerbi, Bastos; Lazzari, Milinkovic, Lucas Leiva, Luis Alberto, Lulic; Caicedo, Immobile
Lecce, Tachtsidis returns. Babacar is not at its best
For the Roman trip, Liverani finds Tachtsidis in the middle of the field after the disqualification round. To leave the place should be Tabanelli who is not very well. Babacar is also struggling with muscle discomfort but the Lapadula seen in the latest releases is difficult to remove. Falco is on pole to support him in attack while behind them space for Mancosu
LECCE (4-3-1-2) probable formation: Gabriel; Meccariello, Rossettini, Lucioni, Calderoni; Petriccione, Tachtsidis, Majer; Mancosu; Falco, Lapadula
SAMPDORIA-ATALANTA, Sunday at 3 pm
Sampdoria, towards the Quagliarella return
In Ferrara a victory came at the last minute that did not see the protagonist Fabio Quagliarella who remained sitting on the bench for the whole race. Ranieri should raise last season's top scorer unless his physical condition suggests further rest. In midfield various ballots to be resolved with Thorsby who should sit back on the bench. Rigoni and Bertolacci could re-enter in the XI holder but the second is in close head-to-head with Vieira.
SAMPDORIA (4-4-2) probable formation: Audero; Depaoli, Colley, Ferrari, Murru; Rigoni, Ekdal, Vieira, Jankto; Gabbiadini, Quagliarella
Atalanta, Gosens in the pits. Ilicic disqualified
The sports judge stopped Josip Ilicic. In the Champions League Gasperini did not field Muriel from the first minute, who should then take back a starting shirt against Sampdoria. In defense there is a couple of players who came out tired or bruised from the European challenge. One between Masiello and Kjaer goes towards ownership. Gosens will be missing on the outside lane. Hateboer and Chestnuts are therefore used. Watch out for Malinovskyi who could take a place in the initial formation.
ATALANTA (3-4-1-2) probable formation: Gollini; Toloi, Palomino, Masiello; Hateboer, de Roon, Freuler, Chestnuts; Pasalic; Gomez, Muriel
UDINESE-SPAL, Sunday at 3 pm
Udinese, Stryger Larsen with the group
Fresh from the great comeback victory in Genoa, Udinese are looking for a second consecutive victory against a Spal that is still running out of points. De Maio is not at his best but on the road to recovery while Stryger Larsen is back to training with his team-mates. The Danish exterior not only travels to the convocation but it is not excluded that it may even be part of the XI holder. Nestorovski can be confirmed in having. Fofana-Mandragora balloting in between. Jajalo returns.
UDINESE (3-5-2) probable formation: Musso; De Maio, Troost-Ekong, Samir; Larsen, Mandragora, Jajalo, De Paul, Sema; Okaka, Nestorowski
Spal, out of Igor. Perhaps Vicars
Leonardo Semplici cannot be wrong in Udine. The ranking situation is worrying but there is no good news for what concerns the defense department. Igor is disqualified while Vicari has a shoulder problem that could make him miss the trip to Friuli. In pre Felipe alarm. Valoti hopes to win the ballot with Murgia. Strefezza and Reca on the bands go towards a new ownership
SPAL (3-5-2) Probable formation: Berisha; Cionek, Vicars, Tomovic; Strefezza, Murgia, Missiroli, Kurtic, Reca; Floccari, Petagna.
PARMA-ROME, Sunday at 18.00
Parma, Karamoh stops
There is no peace for Parma strikers. After English and Cornelius it's Yann Karamoh's turn. The former Inter has undergone investigations that have shown an injury to the collateral ligament. Forced stop therefore for Karamoh that in all probability will be replaced by the returning Cornelius with Gervinho who will return to do the outside. In the median duel Hernani-Barilla while in defense you can see Gagliolo again.
PARMA (4-3-3) probable formation: Sepe; Darmian, Iacoponi, Dermaku, Pezzella; Kucka, Scozzarella, Barilla; Kulusevski, Cornelius, Gervinho
Rome, fatigue for Spinazzola
The news from the infirmary is in chiaroscuro. If on the one hand Luca Pellegrini is working to return, as the medical staff's go-ahead has also arrived, on the other there is u Mkhitaryan which will have to extend the time of his return. The recovery of Diawara is good. Spinazzola suffered from fatigue during the week. Should Florenzi not get ready. Cetin disqualified but Fazio returns
ROME (4-2-3-1) probable formation: Pau Lopez; Spinazzola, Smalling, Fazio, Kolarov; Mancini, Veretout; Zaniolo, Pastore, Kluivert; Dzeko
JUVENTUS-MILAN, Sunday at 8.45pm
Juventus, distortion for de Ligt. Fatigue for CR7
The victory in the Champions League against Lokomotiv Moscow has told us two things (in fact, Sarri has said them to us). First: Douglas Costa from the first minute to the moment is a no. Second: Ronaldo has been removed due to fatigue. In addition there is de Ligt who is struggling with a distortion and is clearly in doubt. Dybala-Higuain balloting usually takes place unless Ronaldo has to raise the white flag (a very unrealistic hypothesis)
JUVENTUS (4-3-1-2) probable formation: Szczesny; Cuadrado, Bonucci, Demiral, Alex Sandro; Emre Can, Pjanic, Matuidi; Bernardeschi; Dybala, Ronaldo
Milan, Suso ok. Castillejo KO
Pioli had not been able to deploy Suso against Lazio due to muscular resentment. His replacement, Castillejo, suffered an injury to his left thigh biceps and is out for Sunday. Revolving doors therefore in attack since Suso has regularly trained with his teammates and aims straight for a starting shirt. Musacchio is not yet recovered. Space then to Duarte. The ballots seem to be only in the median with Krunic ahead of Kessie and Bennacer who is head to head with Lucas Biglia
MILAN (4-3-3) probable formation: Donanrumma; Calabria, Duarte, Romagnoli, Hernandez; Paqueta, Bennacer, Krunic; Suso, Piatek, Calhanoglu
