There seems to be just one doubt for Andrea Pirlo going into tomorrow’s must-win trip to Bologna, as Dejan Kulusevski should again partner Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Bianconeri know even a victory here might not be enough, as if Milan and Napoli also win, then they cannot catch up to the top four.

The Bianconeri know even a victory here might not be enough, as if Milan and Napoli also win, then they cannot catch up to the top four.

Rodrigo Bentancur is suspended and Leonardo Bonucci still not fully fit, although he did make a brief substitute appearance in the Coppa Italia Final 2-1 win over Atalanta on Wednesday.

Pirlo said in his press conference that he could do “something different” tomorrow with regards to his line-up, but most sources maintain Kulusevski will again start upfront with Ronaldo, leaving Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata on the bench.

The concern is in midfield, where he must pick between Arthur Melo and Weston McKennie to join Federico Chiesa, Juan Cuadrado and Adrien Rabiot.

Alex Sandro was suspended in the Coppa Italia, so he returns at left-back.

Bologna have both Roberto Soriano and Mitchell Dijks sitting out bans, with Aaron Hickey, Danilo and Nico Dominguez injured.

Emanuel Vignato is expected to start with Riccardo Orsolini and Musa Barrow in support of veteran Rodrigo Palacio.

Mattias Svanberg had been in doubt, but Sinisa Mihajlovic assured in the press conference that he is ready to play.

Probable line-ups

Bologna: Skorupski; Mbaye, Tomiyasu, Soumaoro, De Silvestri; Schouten, Svanberg; Orsolini, Vignato, Barrow; Palacio

Juventus: Szczesny; Danilo, De Ligt, Chiellini, Alex Sandro; Cuadrado, Arthur, Rabiot, Chiesa; Kulusevski, Ronaldo
