Massimiliano Allegri is expected to hand Southampton loanee Carlos Alcaraz his second Juventus start against Napoli due to absences in his midfield.

The Bianconeri may have secured a 3-2 win over Frosinone in their last outing on the weekend, but the victory did little to dispel recent doubts surrounding the work of Allegri’s squad, who only picked up one point in three games prior to their clash with the Giallazzurri.

Juventus are now gearing up for the ever-tense match with an unknown Napoli, who still need to find a rhythm under short-term coach Francesco Calzona. Adrien Rabiot and Weston McKennie are both expected to miss the match, forcing Allegri to find alternate solutions.

Gazzetta dello Sport details how Allegri is planning to give Alcaraz his second consecutive Juventus start in the coming match with Napoli, giving the 21-year-old a big jump considering that six weeks ago he was playing against Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship with Southampton.

Other options who could join Alcaraz in the midfield include Hans Nicolussi Caviglia, Joseph Nonge and Fabio Miretti.
