Juventus boss Antonio Conte could decide to field Paul Pogba in the derby against Torino in order to rest Arturo Vidal.
Conte is considering giving the Chilean a chance to catch his breath ahead of the crucial Champions League tie against Shakhtar Donetsk.
The Bianconeri need a point in the Ukraine next week to book their place in the last 16 of the competition.
Vidal, 25, has played in 12 Serie A games this season and all five of the club’s European matches so far.
Pogba, meanwhile, has featured in eight League games of which he has started four.
Pogba could also use the derby to stake a clam for a shirt against Shakhtar as Claudio Marchisio will be suspended for next Wednesday’s encounter.
