Giovinco or Llorente for Juve?

Juventus boss Antonio Conte will have to decide whether to start with Sebastian Giovinco or Fernando Llorente against Fiorentina on Sunday.

The tactician’s attacking options have been reduced for the Tuscan trip given the injuries to Mirko Vucinic and Fabio Quagliarella.

Conte will now use the next three days to decide whether Giovinco or Llorente will begin alongside Carlos Tevez in attack.

The latter has been a regular fixture in the side so far this season given that he has appeared in all seven of the side’s League games this term.

The Argentine and Arturo Vidal are the club’s top scorers in the championship thanks to three goals each. Tevez is currently 7/1 in the Serie A top goalscorer market.

Juventus, who will face Real Madrid in midweek, are expected to be tested in Serie A on Sunday at the Artemio Franchi.

Juventus are odds-on with Paddy Power to win Serie A, but there are doubts over whether they can collect a third successive championship.

Although they have won six and drawn one of their seven League games so far, they have already conceded six goals in the process.

The Bianconeri are currently joint second in the Italian top flight with Napoli, two points behind leaders Roma. Those two teams will play each other in Rome tomorrow night.
