Everyone loves Coppa Italia, which lucky 11 should play?

Juventus completes their jam-packed February with a Coppa Italia semi-final matchup against Napoli on Tuesday. We are at the portion of the competition where the trophy is in sight, so there may be some more reluctance to rotate the squad seeing as a few good performances could lock up the trophy.

Napoli comes into the tie in relatively poor form, coming off their recent 2-0 defeat over the Europe-seeking Atalanta. Before that, they beat Chievo 3-1, and lost to Real Madrid 3-1. They have only kept a clean sheet for two of their last 12 games across all competitions. I’m fairly certain they will be particularly looking to keep a certain Argentine striker (not Paulo Dybala) off the scoresheet at all costs.

It seems as though Juventus has a clean bill of health (knock on wood), so everyone should be available. I have a feeling that the amount of rotation will vary, so this should be a fun vote.

Juventus’ next game comes next Sunday against Udinese, followed by Milan on Friday, and Porto the Tuesday after that.

All things considered, who would you like to start against Napoli on Tuesday?
