Juventus have stormed 14 points clear of nearest challengers AS Roma at the top of the Serie A table, with Antonio Conte's side having still only lost once all league season. It's unlikely that's going to change this weekend, with the bianconeri travelling to play mid-table Genoa late on Sunday.
The grifone have been frustratingly inconsistent so far this season, with their 2-1 defeat to relegation-threatened Chievo Verona last time out ending a four-match unbeaten streak. Still, with their pre-season aim being just consolidating their position in Serie A, they haven't fared too badly. You never quite know what you're going to get with Gian Piero Gasperini's side, though it's safe to say a win against the league leaders is pretty unlikely.
Any advantage they may have gained from the absence of Juventus' injured star striker Carlos Tévez is negated by their own selection concerns. Gasperini will be without a handful of key first teamers, including midfielder Juraj Kucka, talented young wing-back Šime Vrsaljko, and the suspended midfielder Isaac Cofie.
