Massimiliano Allegri and Juventus will have to do without top goal scorer and Serie A player of the month for January Dusan Vlahovic when Udinese visit the Allianz Stadium on Monday evening. 

Vlahovic has been struggling with a muscular issue since the 1-0 Derby d’Italia loss against Inter last weekend and was deemed too much of a risk for Udinese, Football Italia learned on Saturday

Juventus will also be without captain Danilo through suspension. Tiago Djalo will likely sit this one out with concerns over his fitness, while Moise Kean and Mattia De Sciglio remain out with their longer-term injuries. 

Arkadiusz Milik is expected to return to the starting line-up in place of Vlahovic, having served his suspension for his sending off against Empoli during the Inter game last weekend. 

Udinese will not have Roberto Pereyra at their disposal against Juventus, as he sits out with a yellow card suspension, but there are no new injuries at the Stadio Friuli. Gerard Deulofeu, Enzo Ebosse and Jaka Bijol are still out long term. 

Kick-off in Turin is set for 19.45 GMT. 

Juventus (3-5-2): Szczesny; Gatti, Bremer, Alex Sandro; Cabiaso, McKennie, Locatelli, Rabiot, Kostic; Milik, Chiesa. 

Udinese (3-5-1-1): Okoye; Perez, Giannetti, Kristensen; Ebosele, Samardzic, Wallace, Lovric, Kamara; Thauvin; Lucca.
