Serie A Round 23: Juventus – Crotone Official Lineups

In the Monday night match of Serie A Round 23, Juventus are about to welcome Crotone at the Allianz Stadium and the official lineups have just been released by both contenders.

With Paulo Dybala still injured and Alvaro Morata not 100% recovered, it will be again up to Dejan Kulusevski to partner with Cristiano Ronaldo on the front line. Andrea Pirlo with deploy a three-man defense and add Federico Chiesa and Alex Sandro as wing backs. The goalkeeper will be Gianluigi Buffon, who will thus collect his 654th Serie A cap.

Bottom-ranked Crotone will do what they can to weather the storm. In the first leg back in October, they managed to hold the Bianconeri to a 1-1 draw, but that was also due to Juventus playing with one man less for part of the game.

Since Adam Ounas and Samuel Di Carmine came to reinforce the Squali’s attack in the last transfer session, coach Giovanni Stroppa has been testing new setup solutions on top of his regular 3-5-2. Tonight he is expected to feature a 4-2-3-1 where Di Carmine will act as lone striker, with Ounas supporting from the back alongside Arkadiusz Reca and Junior Messias.

Here are the official lineups for both Juventus and Crotone:
