Juventus travel to the Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi in search of a vital turnaround against relegation-threatened Hellas Verona. The Bianconeri, boosted by the return of key players, desperately need an away win to break their dismal winless streak. With pressure mounting, this Serie A clash could prove crucial in Juventus' battle to keep their title hopes alive.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri welcomes back Serbian striker Dusan Vlahovic after an injury layoff, a sight sure to bring some much-needed firepower to the Bianconeri frontline.

Additionally, experienced defender Danilo rejoins the ranks after serving a suspension, adding stability to the backline. However, the loss of Bremer to suspension is a blow, while De Sciglio, Moise Kean, and Perin remain on the injury list.

Hellas Verona, despite grappling with injuries, will take the field without any significant new absentees. Nonetheless, the suspension of Diego Coppola poses challenges for their midfield. Polish striker Karol Swiderski is expected to be fit enough to lead the visitors' attack.

The stakes are high for Juventus, who have endured three consecutive winless games in Serie A. Pressure mounts as they face the possibility of falling further behind in the title race.

For Hellas Verona, languishing in 18th place with no away wins this season, every point counts in their desperate fight for survival. Additionally, Juventus' strong historical home record against Verona adds a psychological edge to this encounter.

Hellas Verona (4-2-3-1): Montipo; Magnani, Hien, Dawidowicz; Faraoni, Veloso, Tameze, Doig; Duda, Ngonge; Gaich
