Coppa Italia Liveblog: Juventus vs. Sampdoria

The winners of this tie, decided after 90 minutes, extra time or penalties, will go on to face either Sassuolo or Cagliari in the quarter-final.

The Bianconeri are feeling the tension after their Supercoppa Italiana extra time defeat to Inter and Paulo Dybala’s glare towards the stands during the win over Udinese.

Coach Allegri sits out a touchline ban, with Matthijs de Ligt and Moise Kean both suspended too.

Federico Chiesa and Federico Bernardeschi are injured, Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci not at 100 per cent, so Danilo makes his comeback in defence with Kulusevski partnering Morata.

Sampdoria are in even worse condition, having sacked coach D’Aversa yesterday and not found a replacement yet, though they are in talks with Marco Giampaolo.

Youth team staff Felice Tufano and Angelo Colombo therefore sit on the bench.

Among the absentees for the Blucerchiati are Maya Yoshida, Omar Colley, Julian Chabot, Emil Audero, Mikkel Damsgaard, Valerio Verre, Albin Ekdal and Fabio Quagliarella.

New signing Giangiacomo Magnani is therefore thrown straight into the XI for his debut.

Juventus: Perin; De Sciglio, Danilo, Rugani, Alex Sandro; Cuadrado, Arthur, Locatelli, Rabiot; Kulusevski, Morata

Sampdoria: Falcone; Conti, Magnani, Augello, Murru; Thorsby, Askildsen, Rincon, Bereszynski; Torregrossa, Caputo
