Juventus will be confident of maintaining their unbelievable start to the season against a struggling Reggina outfit. The Bianconeri have won eight and drawn one of their nine games so far, while the home side have picked up just one point in their last five matches.
Reggina, who have lost their last two games at the Granillo, threw away the points last weekend when they let a goal advantage slip as they lost the derby against Messina 2-1. Another defeat could see the axe fall on boss Walter Mazzarri. He’ll probably be without De Rosa, Veron and Esteves, while key man Mesto will be suspended.
They’ll have to also improve dramatically in front of goal given that they have only netted six so far, which doesn’t bode well when you consider that the Bianconeri have conceded just two in Serie A.
It’s unclear at this stage what sort of side the Turin giants will put out. They beat Chievo 3-0 last week without a host of first team regulars such as Zambrotta, Emerson, Del Piero, Zebina and Trezeguet. The last two will be unavailable again, but the other three men should all return to the line-up.
