The winners of this tie go on to face Lazio in the quarter-final.

Coach Max Allegri sits out a touchline ban, so his assistant Marco Landucci will be on the bench for the first outing since their 5-1 Serie A defeat to Napoli.

The injury list remains extensive, missing Dusan Vlahovic, Paul Pogba, Juan Cuadrado, Leonardo Bonucci, Mattia De Sciglio and Kaio Jorge.

Faith is put in the players who were promoted from the NextGen youth team, including Matias Soule, Samuel Iling Junior, Fabio Miretti and Nicolò Fagioli.

Monza already beat Juventus in a shock Serie A result earlier this season, which represented the debut of coach Raffaele Palladino.

It was Christian Gytkjaer who scored the winner that day and he starts upfront, but Stefano Sensi and Juventus-owned Nicolò Rovella are on the bench.

Samuele Birindelli is suspended, so the son of former Juventus player Alessandro Birindelli won’t get to play against his family’s old club.

Dany Mota Carvalho and Gianluca Caprari are on the treatment table.

Juventus: Perin; Gatti, Rugani, Danilo; McKennie, Fagioli, Paredes, Miretti, Iling Jr; Soulé, Kean

Monza: Cragno; Marlon, Pablo Marì, Carboni; Colpani, Pessina, Ranocchia, Valoti; D’Alessandro, Gytkjaer
