12th day of Serie A: the last training on the teams, directly from our correspondents from the fields.
After the fourth day of international cups and on the eve of the third break for the national teams of the season, Serie A lives its 12th round: it begins tonight with the Emilia derby between Sassuolo and Bologna, an inevitable conclusion Sunday evening, when at Allianz Stadium of Pioli will arrive in Turin. Here are the probable line-ups of Juventus-Milan (live TV from 8.45 pm on Sunday on Sky) thanks to the contribution of all the journalists of TuttoMercatoWeb.com scattered throughout Italy:
HOW JUVENTUS ARRIVES – Sarri's eleven-cardholder could come out of the line-up that ended the match with Lokomotiv Moscow, especially forward. Buffon could replace Szczesny; in defense Cuadrado could resume his place on the right wing while Alex Sandro should be confirmed on the left. De Ligt in doubt: if he does not recover, a second ballot between Rugani and Demiral, with the second favorite this time, but not excluding a rest session for Bonucci, who has played them all until now. In midfield favorites Emre Can, Bentancur and Matuidi. Forward, in the absence of Ronaldo, space for Dybala, Higuain and Douglas Costa.
HOW THE MILAN ARRIVES – Stefano Pioli changes: in yesterday's training session, a new three-man defense was tested, with Rodriguez, Romagnoli and Duarte in the trio, and Conti and Theo Hernandez wide in midfield. In between Krunic and Bennacer, with relative exclusion of Kessie, while Suso and Calhanoglu should act behind the only Piatek tip. This at least is what the Rossoneri coach has experienced today, so this becomes the main route ahead of the challenge for Juventus on Sunday evening.
