Juventus vs Sampdoria Serie A Preview

January 06, 2013


The Serie A holders went into the holiday season eight point clear in Serie A, and will be looking to keep up winning ways as they host the newly-promoted Sampdoria




Barzagli, Bonucci, Caceres 

Pirlo, Marchisio 

Isla, Vidal, De Ceglie 

Matri, Giovinco 



De Silvestri, Gastaldello, Palombo, Costa 

Krsticic, Obiang, Poli, Estigarribia 

Eder, Icardi 


Mirko Vucinic looks likely to be a big absence for Juventus as they continue their quest to claim a second consecutive Serie A title in the first encounter of 2013. 

The Montenegro international is struggling with an ankle injury, meaning that Antonio Conte is likely to put his faith in the attacking duo of Alessandro Matri and Sebastian Giovinco. 

Stephan Lichtsteiner is another enforced absentee for the Bianconeri, as he serves a suspension. 

Mauricio Isla will be entrusted with his position on the flank, with Juve otherwise able to put out a full-strength side in front of their own fans. 

Relegation battlers Sampdoria, meanwhile, will have to do without captain and midfield anchor Enzo Maresca, who is unavailable through injury. 

Goalkeeper Sergio Romero is also fighting to prove fitness ahead of Sunday's kick-off, but Tommaso Berni is standing by to take the Argentina No. 1's place between the posts.
