Ahead of a crucial clash against his former club, Juventus coach Max Allegri has received confirmation that winger Federico Chiesa has definitively recovered from a thigh injury sustained on international duty - having sat out the last two matches.
However, Chiesa's fellow wide man and Azzurri colleague Federico Bernardeschi will have his knee problem assessed again before the game and remains a major doubt.
Allegri will once more choose between the inimitable experience of Giorgio Chiellini and the youthful commitment of Matthijs de Ligt to partner ex-Milan man Leonardo Bonucci in central defence, while Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata are expected to continue in tandem up front.
Meanwhile, Milan have Zlatan Ibrahimovic unavailable again, after his latest comeback attempt foundered because of an Achilles injury, so Olivier Giroud will lead the line in Turin.
While the French striker and Sandro Tonali began on the bench against Liverpool, the latter should also return to the first XI alongside Franck Kessie.
Giroud's probable selection means that Ante Rebic is likely to drop out, though he could alternatively shift to the flank,
with Rafael Leao omitted instead.
