Massimiliano Allegri and José Mourinho meet at the Allianz Stadium with the Juventus coach who has won only two of their previous eight meetings.
Allegri beat Mourinho for the first time in 2009, when he was in charge of Cagliari. Nine years later, in November 2018, he won his second game against the Special One when Juventus beat Manchester United 1-0 in the Champions League group stage.
Mourinho has won four games against Allegri, with the remaining two matches ending up in draws.
Juventus host the Giallorossi without the injured Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata who missed the last two games before the break with muscle injuries.
Therefore, Federico Chiesa and Moise Kean are expected to start up front.
Danilo, Alex Sandro and Rodrigo Bentancur returned from international duty on Friday night and the former Man City defender could start as he hadn’t played Brazil’s last game.
Roma travel to Turin without the injured Chris Smalling and Leonardo Spinazzola. Tammy Abraham is in doubt for the game with an ankle problem.
