Juventus and Lazio make their Coppa Italia debut today, hosting Sampdoria and Udinese, respectively. Check out the probable line-ups.

We begin at 16.30 local time with Lazio facing Udinese at the Stadio Olimpico.

Maurizio Sarri must do without Francesco Acerbi, Akpa Akpro, Toma Basic, Pedro and Stefan Radu, but is not expected to rotate much.

Mattia Zaccagni will like replace Pedro and Pepe Reina will start in goal after being relegated to the bench in the last seven Serie A matches.

On the other hand, Udinese’s best scorers Beto and Gerard Deulofeu, are likely to rest with Ignacio Pussetto and Isaac Success up front.

The winners will face Milan in the quarter-finals.

Probable line-ups

Lazio (4-3-3): Reina; Hysaj, Patric, Luiz Felipe, Lazzari; Luis Alberto, Cataldi, Milinkovic-Savic; Zaccagni, Immobile, F Anderson.

Udinese (3-5-2): Silvestri; Zeegelar, Becao, Nehuen Perez; Soppy, Samardzic, Jajalo, Makengo, Udogie; Pussetto, Success.

Juventus host Sampdoria at the Allianz Stadium 20.00 UK time.

Massimiliano Allegri is serving a one-match ban, so Marco Landucci will be on the bench. At the same time, Samp sacked Roberto D’Aversa yesterday and Primavera coach Felice Tufano will be on the sidelines, waiting for Marco Giampaolo’s appointment.

Koni De Winter and Kaio Jorge are expected to feature in Juventus XI with Paulo Dybala on the bench.

Sampdoria will rotate massively ahead of Sunday’s derby against Spezia. The winners will face Sassuolo or Cagliari in the quarter-finals.

Probable line-ups

Juventus (4-2-3-1): Perin; De Sciglio, De Winter, Rugani, Pellegrini; Bentancur, Rabiot; Kulusevski, Kaio Jorge, Bernardeschi; Morata.

Sampdoria (4-4-2): Falcone; Bereszynski, Dragusin, Magnani, Murru; Thorsby, Rincon, Askildsen, Candreva; Torregrossa, Ciervo.
