Line-ups: Juventus pick Iaquinta

Vincenzo Iaquinta, Alessandro Matri, Marco Storari and Jorge Martinez start as Juventus welcome Bologna.

The 19.45 UK time kick-off is at the Stadio Olimpico in Turin, where Gigi Del Neri hopes to end a negative streak.

The Bianconeri have to reinvent their midfield, as Alberto Aquilani and Momo Sissoko joined long-term absentees Leandro Rinaudo, Paolo De Ceglie and Fabio Quagliarella in the stands.

Claudio Marchisio therefore moves back into a more central role with Martinez placed wide left.

Gigi Buffon is also ruled out by a ban after his red card in the embarrassing 2-0 defeat to Lecce, so Storari takes the gloves.

It's a surprise change in attack, where Luca Toni is rested in favour of Iaquinta as a partner for Matri.

Bologna have Gaston Ramirez suspended plus Gyorgy Garics and the Juventus-owned Albin Ekdal injured, so Francesco Della Rocca is given the trequartista role behind Riccardo Meggiorini and Marco Di Vaio.

Miguel Angel Britos is still recovering from a facial injury and has been given a protective mask, but still starts in defence.

Juventus: Storari; Grygera, Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini; Krasic, Melo, Marchisio, Martinez; Iaquinta, Matri

Juventus bench: Manninger, Motta, Salihamidzic, Traoré, Pepe, Toni, Del Piero

Bologna: Viviano; Esposito, Portanova, Britos, Rubin; Perez, Mudingayi, Casarini; Della Rocca; Meggiorini, Di Vaio

Bologna bench: Lupatelli, Cherubin, Morleo, Mutarelli, Buscè, Gimenez, Paponi
