Juventus are set to miss Leonardo Bonucci against Salernitana, but there are reports Angel Di Maria will not be joined by Dusan Vlahovic and Federico Chiesa.

It kicks off on Tuesday at 19.45 GMT at the Stadio Arechi.

Max Allegri called this a head-to-head for teams trying to avoid relegation, as Juve’s 15-point penalty and poor form has seen them slide into the bottom half of the table.

Paul Pogba saw his comeback delayed again by muscular issues, joining Bonucci, Arkadiusz Milik and Kaio Jorge on the treatment table.

Bonucci had been hoping to return, but Sky Sport Italia report the inflammation in his long adductor tendon has flared up again.

There are two options for Allegri’s tactics, as he could use the 3-4-1-2 with Di Maria supporting the strikers, or alternatively a 3-5-2 with the Argentina international as the partner to the centre-forward.

If they use the 3-5-2, then Moise Kean is likely to start, leaving Vlahovic and Chiesa on the bench.

Leandro Paredes either way seems to be heading for the bench amid reports Juventus do not intend to purchase him outright from Paris Saint-Germain.
