Juventus host AC Milan in Turin on Sunday night, with both clubs eager to secure all three points in order to put a disappointing week behind them.
While the Bianconeri were held by Galatasaray on Wednesday, Massimiliano Allegri’s side grabbed a point against Ajax in Amsterdam but will be determined to improve their domestic form.
Antonio Conte spoke this week of how the media are trying to “destabilise” the club with talk of a crisis, and he will be desperate for a reaction from his players in order to silence the critics.
Mirko Vucinic is likely to miss out after picking up an injury in mid-week, but it will still be a strong line-up as Carlos Tevez is expected to link up with Fernando Llorente.
Meanwhile, Mario Balotelli is still missing through suspension for the visitors as Milan’s injury woes are easing ahead of the international break, but the trip to Turin comes too soon for the likes of Kaka, Stephan El Shaarawy and Mattia De Sciglio.
Juve are strong favourites to seal a win which will keep them just behind leaders Roma, and considering Allegri’s poor record against direct rivals it will take something special from Milan to deny them.
