Game Time Thread: Juventus vs. Livorno

Now comes the point in time where Juventus tries to get another unbeaten run in Serie A going.

Okay, let's try it again: Now comes the point in time where we hope Juventus gets another unbeaten run in Serie A going. There, I think that's better.

You know what's also a good thing? The fact that Juventus, regardless of how much they are struggling right now, are facing a team in just a few short minutes that will certainly be battling for their Serie A lives over the next six weeks. It's not a European opponent, not one that is trying to secure their place in the Champions League next season. Not even close. Livorno are trying to survive what every newly-promoted side how to not even see their first year in the top flight.

And we thought Juventus struggling for a month was rough to deal with. Ha!

But I digress.

Juventus' 22-game run is now a thing of the past. Shall we start a new one? The schedule couldn't have really given Juve anything better. Well, it could have been somebody else who is currently in the relegation zone, but it's close enough, guys. We'll just have to settle for almost-relegation-zone this time.

So, with all that being said, I've got one more thing to say: Starting lineups for both Juventus and Livorno will be posted RIGHT HERE when they become available. This may be Monday night football, but it's not Monday Night Football. Silly Americans. Wait a second now.

UPDATE: LINEUPS ARE IN!

Juventus (3-5-2): Buffon; Caceres, Bonucci, Chiellini; Lichtsteiner, Pogba, Pirlo, Marchisio, Asamoah; Tevez, Llorente
