will lock horns with


on Sunday, welcoming Robert D’Aversa’s side at their stadium.

We must face this game by playing well and trying to make one step forward in the table,

Massimiliano Allegri

said at his pre-match press conference.

“We won the first game away and we must do the same at home, there will be changes because some players played 6-7 games in the last period.”

However, the Juve coach revealed that Leonardo Bonucci will feature whereas Mattia Perin will start in goal.

“Bonucci is an important player for this team, so he plays if he is fit. Ha may say to be tired, but when the game gets closer, he always feels well. I am happy about the four central defenders that I have.

“I don’t know if [Paulo] Dybala will start, while [Adrien] Rabiot will surely rest, because he picked up a knock to his ankle so he won’t be called up,”

Allegri revealed.

“Federico Chiesa is feeling well and he can play both on the left and on the right, tomorrow we’ll see.”

The Bianconeri sealed their first victory in Serie A in the battle against Spezia on Wednesday. They have only gained one point in their first five matches. However, they conceded eight goals since the start of the season.

I think Juventus will be able to concede fewer goals, we are defending well in our own half,”

Allegri said.

“When things do not go well, the physical shape is always mentioned [by media]. Against Milan, we made many technical mistakes, so our opponents gained strength, you can’t only defend in football.

“We registered 25 shots on target against Spezia, we created a lot in the first half,”

the coach continued.

“Locatelli is doing well, but don’t forget that he arrives from Sassuolo and it’s challenging to play with the Juventus jersey.

“The physical and mental effort required is different.”

Juve will take on Chelsea in the Champions League on Wednesday following their battle against Sampdoria.

Juventus started the European campaign on the right foot as they vanquished Malmo 3-0 in their first game.
