Maurizio Sarri's Juventus moved eight points clear at the top of the table thanks to two handball penalties, which held Atalanta to a 2-2 draw. They can also thank Sassuolo, who completed a comeback to beat Lazio 2-1 on Saturday with a late Francesco Caputo goal. That was the Neroverdi's fourth consecutive victory and they are eager to keep the run going against a Juve side who have been rattled of late. Berardi, Boga and Filip Djuricic fan out behind hitman Caputo, while Rogerio – who had a very nasty knock to the head during training yesterday that saw him taken to hospital – Gregoire Defrel, Pedro Obiang and Filippo Romagna are out injured. Juventus miss suspended Juan Cuadrado, so Danilo moves to right-back, bringing Alex Sandro back on the left, but above all Giorgio Chiellini giving Leonardo Bonucci a rest.
