Despite selling Paul Pogba to United, Juventus ha made several transfers on their own in key areas, with likes of Marko Pjaca, Miralem Pjanic, Gonzalo Higuain and Dani Alves. Of course their main task will be getting Argeninian striker Gonzalo Higuain into his best condition, as he looked like he was carrying some weight on his return to action against West Ham in a pre-season game. Apparently, Mario Mandzukic is favourite to partner up with Paulo Dybala since Higuain is not at his best yet. Patrice Evra needs to add so,e fitness as he has just returned to training after his vacations.
Fiorentina have done some minor business on the transfer market so far, their most notable signing being Sebastien De Maio, who has just had his medical. Also, Giuseppe Rossi, who is back from his loan spell to Levante is eager to fight for a place in the squad.
Juventus: Predicted Line-up (3–5‑2)
Buffon – Barzagli, Chiellini, Bonucci – Dani Alves, Khedira, Pjanic, Asamoah, Alex Sandro – Dybala, Mandzukic.
Fiorentina: Predicted Line-up (3–4‑3)
