Coming off an important 3-1 win over Sevilla on Tuesday, Juventus heads back to Italy to take on Genoa on Sunday in their return to league action.

After a weak showing by some of the top teams last week, Juventus sits on top of the table by seven points over Roma. Genoa currently sit tied for 12th, with 16 points total on the year. Their season so far has been highlighted by a 3-0 win over Milan, and a 0-0 draw against Napoli.

The Sevilla game was injury-free, which is always great to have when you play all your top players. There is potential for Paulo Dybala to return for this game, but would surely be doing so from a bench role, if anything. He will be added to the survey if he’s in the match day squad, as well as Mehdi Benatia, Marko Pjaca and Gonazalo Higuain, whose statuses are also unclear. Andrea Barzagli will also likely be unavailable, but Stephan Lichtsteiner returns to playing eligibility for the league games.

Worth mentioning is that the trip to Genoa will be against Stefano Sturaro’s former team, so that may be a reason for you to choose him in the starting lineup.

After this game, Juve’s next fixture will be next Saturday against Atalanta, who have been on fire as of late.

All things considered, who would you like to see start on Sunday? Vote below! The results will be posted, as well as a few different takes on the lineup, including my own.

Remember, this is not what you expect the lineup to be, this is what you would do or what you would like to see.

This is your reminder to set your Fantasy Serie A lineups.

And also, I changed the available formations up a little bit. I feel like for our personnel, a 4-3-3 is more similar to a 4-5-1 than a 4-3-2-1, so they have been combined. Let me know what you think of the change.
