Genoa v Juventus, Preview: Former Players Plan To Upset The Champions

Juventus visit the port city looking to retain their perfect start, but could come undone courtesy of one of their own players.

Co-owned Ciro Immobile looks set to line up against his parent club, alongside another former Turin alumnus - Marco Borriello. Both will be eager to show the Bianconeri what they’re missing.

Thus far, Juventus don’t seem to be missing much. Well, apart from the signing of a marquee marksman. Sorry Nicklas.

Buoyed by a crushing 4-1 win at Udinese, stand-in Juventus Coach Massimo Carrera has asked for more from his players and welcomes Martin Caceres back from injury. Key faces could be rested with a midweek Champions League trip to Chelsea in mind.

Genoa can choose from a full squad minus Juan Vargas and will hope to put the disappointment of a last-gasp defeat to Catania behind them.

Neither side will be happy with a repeat of last season’s corresponding fixture, which ended in a 0-0 draw.
