conte - Palermo

Napoleonic complex has him. (Pic by Zafar)

Juve hosts Palermo. Zafar is the artwork (or vice versa?). At yesterday's press conference, The Count explained that all fitness and readiness issues are done with, and all selections will be made for tactical reasons. Shame, I thought this meant we might see Elia from the start. We still may, but as a sub at best.

Will the light a fire under certain players' arses? Do certain players even need a fire lit? Will Amauri spend the afternoon shopping for a new hat?

Here's the official Juventus starting XI: Buffon; Chiellini, Barzagli, Bonucci, Lichtsteiner; Marchisio, Pirlo, Vidal; Pepe, Vucinic, Matri.

Bench: Storari, PDC, Pazienza, Del Piero, Elia, Quagliarella, Giaccherini.

And away we go...
