Serie A champions Juventus will hope to make it two wins out of two to start the season when they host Udinese and Antonio Di Natale on Saturday night.
Juve Coach Massimiliano Allegri has several injury headaches to contend with after the international break, with midfielder Arturo Vidal joining Andrea Barzagli and Andrea Pirlo on the sidelines.
Carlos Tevez is also understood to be struggling with a thigh injury and is a major doubt, and his absence could therefore give promising youngster Kingsley Coman another opportunity to impress.
Nevertheless, the Bianconeri are still some way short of their strongest XI with Giorgio Chiellini suspended, and so Udinese may well have arrived at the perfect time to catch them cold.
However, the visitors have their own problems to deal with as they arrive in Turin without Simone Scuffet, Gabriel Silva and Giovanni Pasquale, although with Di Natale leading their line, anything is still possible.
The 36-year-old’s ability to find the net with such great regularity despite being the focal point and main focus of opposition defences makes him one of the most deadliest marksman in Europe, and he will be looking to silence the Juventus Stadium on Saturday.
Meanwhile, former Inter Coach Andrea Stramaccioni will also want to make an impression this season as he looks to rebuild his reputation, although he will have to find a way to end a run which has seen Juve win five of the last six home games against the Zebrette.
Both teams won on the opening weekend of the season, but Udinese face a real tough ask to maintain their 100% record as they prepare to lock horns with the defending champions.
