Cagliari vs Juventus: Probable lineups

Cagliari are flying high after holding champions-elect Inter Milan to a draw and beating Atalanta, and they’ll be looking to continue their hot streak against Juventus this Friday.

Manager Claudio Ranieri faces a selection headache with several key players injured, including strikers Gaetano Oristanio, Andrea Petagna, Marco Mancosu, and Leonardo Pavoletti.

However, in-form midfielder Nicolas Viola, who has scored crucial late goals off the bench in the last two games, could be a surprise weapon for Cagliari if their initial strategy falters.

Juventus also have injury concerns, with Paul Pogba still serving a doping ban and Nicolo Fagioli suspended for breaking betting rules. Moise Kean and Arkadiusz Milik are doubtful for the match, but Milik might be available on the bench if needed.

Despite coach Massimiliano Allegri’s sometimes-strained relationship with him, star winger Federico Chiesa is expected to start in Sardinia.

Here’s a look at the possible lineups for both teams:

Cagliari: Scuffet; Zappa, Mina, Dossena; Nandez, Deiola, Makoumbou, Suleman, Augello; Luvumbo, Lapadula

Juventus: Perin; Gatti, Bremer, Danilo; Cambiasso, McKennie, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostic; Vlahovic, Chiesa
