Juventus probable starting XI to face Salernitana




Juventus is on the cusp of a pivotal showdown against Salernitana as they strive to maintain their pursuit of the Serie A title.

With the midpoint of the current league season approaching, Juventus finds themselves just two points behind league leaders Inter Milan, a position historically favorable for title contention.

The team’s recent form has been formidable, going unbeaten in their last 13 league matches and securing an impressive 10 victories.


Notably, Juventus displayed their attacking prowess in a resounding 6-1 triumph over Salernitana in the Coppa Italia, featuring goals from emerging talents Kenan Yildiz and Fabio Miretti.

This victory earned Juventus a coveted spot in the quarter-finals of the Coppa Italia, setting the stage for a friendly run of league fixtures leading up to a highly anticipated clash with Inter Milan in February’s Derby d’Italia.

Coach Massimiliano Allegri’s strategic prowess has been evident, with Juventus boasting the second-most clean sheets in Serie A this season – a testament to their defensive solidity.

This defensive strength aligns with their historical trend, as Juventus has clinched the Serie A title on the nine previous occasions when they garnered at least 43 points from the first 18 matches.


Looking ahead to the Salernitana encounter, Allegri may opt to rotate the squad, providing opportunities for key players like Dusan Vlahovic to make an impact.

However, the absence of influential midfielder Manuel Locatelli, due to suspension, and Federico Chiesa who has not been called up, presents a challenge that Allegri will need to navigate.

Despite some injury concerns, Juventus remains a formidable force, and the potential return of Vlahovic to the starting lineup adds an extra dimension to their attacking prowess.

As the team readies for this crucial fixture, fans eagerly anticipate another display of Juventus’ championship pedigree and their determination to secure the Serie A title once again.


The possible starting lineup for Juventus could see Szczesny in goal, with Weah, McKennie, and Rabiot contributing to the midfield. The attacking front may feature Kenan Yildiz and Vlahovic, promising an exciting blend of experience and emerging talent.

Juventus probable starting XI: Szczesny; Gatti, Bremer, Danilo; Weah, McKennie, Nicolussi Caviglia, Rabiot, Kostic; Yildiz, Vlahovic
