Juventus Vs. Cesena, 2011 Serie A: Lineups

Take a look at the Juventus lineup and the first thing you'll notice is that Andrea Pirlo has been left out, presumably due to injury. Although the master midfielder has played a pivotal role in taking the Old Lady top of the table this season, he looked out-of-sorts against Napoli midweek and likely has earned a rest.

As for Cesena, after their 2-0 victory over Genoa last week, all eyes are on Adrian Mutu. Well, they usually are anyway.

Juventus Starting XI: Gigi Buffon; Stephan Lichtsteiner, Leonardo Bonucci, Paolo De Ceglie*,** Andrea Barzagli, Giorgio Chiellini; Claudio Marchisio, Arturo Vidal, Michele Pazienza; Simone Pepe, Alessandro Matri, Mirko Vucinic

Juve Bench: Marco Storari, Paolo De Ceglie, Marcelo Estigarribia, Milos Krasic, Emanuele Giaccherini, Alessandro Del Piero, Fabio Quagliarella

Cesena Starting XI: Francesco Antonioli; Yohan Benalouane, Steve Von Bergen, Guillermo Rodriguez, Maurizio Lauro; Abdelkader Ghezzal, Roberto Guana, Marco Parolo, Raphael Martinho; Erjon Bogdani, Adrian Mutu

Cesena Bench: Somewhere, someone knows who is on the Cesena bench. I'm assuming Daniele Arrigoni, at the very least. I, however, do not.

*late change according to Adam Digby, so blame him if it doesn't happen.

**oh just watch and figure it out yourselves.
