Juventus and Atalanta count absentees

Atalanta are without Duvan Zapata, Davide Zappacosta and suspended Teun Koopmeiners, while Juventus have Adrien Rabiot back from injury.

It kicks off at the Allianz Juventus Stadium in Turin on Sunday at 19.45 GMT.

La Dea will make the trip without Koopmeiners, as the Netherlands international sits out a ban due to an accumulation of yellow cards.

It is a big loss, considering he has contributed six goals and four assists in 18 Serie A games so far this season.

Coach Gian Piero Gasperini is also missing striker Duvan Zapata and wing-back Zappacosta due to injury, so Rasmus Hojlund and Ademola Lookman are again the favourites to start.

The support is to be chosen between Mario Pasalic and Jeremie Boga.

Luis Muriel will probably only be left on the bench to begin with after Atalanta thrashed Salernitana 8-2 last week.

Juventus have to put off the field issues aside and ignore the 15-point penalty to focus on the football.

The injury list remains extensive, including Dusan Vlahovic, Paul Pogba, Leonardo Bonucci, Mattia De Sciglio and Kaio Jorge, but Rabiot is available after muscular issues.

Federico Chiesa is likely to be rested initially, after scoring the Coppa Italia winner against Monza on Thursday, so Angel Di Maria supports Moise Kean.

Probable line-ups

Juventus: Szczesny; Danilo, Bremer, Alex Sandro; McKennie, Fagioli, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostic; Di Maria, Kean

Atalanta: Musso; Toloi, Palomino, Scalvini; Hateboer, De Roon, Ederson, Ruggeri; Pasalic; Lookman, Hojlund
