Federico Bernardeschi, fresh off a two assist performance against Sassuolo is rumored to start again against the Viola.

It’s always a tough trip south to Tuscany for Juventus, and head coach Massimiliano Allegri has urged his men to keep focused ahead of Friday’s game.

Reports from Juventus’ training center indicate a largely unchanged lineup for the trip, again featuring Bernardeschi, who arrived from Fiorentina this past summer.

Allegri is set to play a 4-3-3 with Higuain, Mandzukic and Bernardeschi in attack. In the midfield there will likely be Claudio Marchisio, Stefano Sturaro and Miralem Pjanic.

In defense, Stephan Lichtsteiner will replace Mattia De Sciglio with Medhi Benatia and Daniele Rugani in the center of the fray, reports Sky Sport 24.
