Juventus vs. Lecce – Italian Serie A | Soccrates Images / Getty Images
The Serie A title race is closer than it has been for many, many years, and Lazio is trying to dethrone Juventus and end its almost decade of dominance.
The old lady is currently four points ahead of Lazio, but the gap could be closed up to a point if Maurizo Sarri's men face relegation-threatened Genoa and the Eagles play against Turin earlier in the game.
With Juventus facing a real challenge for the first time in several years, Sarri's team must be at the top of their game to keep their distance from Simone Inzaghi's men.
This is how Juventus' starting line-up against Genoa should look on Tuesday.

Wojciech Szczęsny (GK) – After Szczęsny has started all but six of Juventus's league games this season, it is almost certain that he will once again be on the team sheet for the Serie A leaders.
Juan Cuadrado (RB) – The decision to convert Cuadrado to a full-time right-back turned out to be an inspired decision from Sarri, and the Colombian made the position his own.
Leonardo Bonucci (CB) – 33-year-old Bonucci is still an integral part of the heart of Juventus' defense. Vice-captain Bonucci, who has played in all but one league game this season, is an absolute eye-catcher.
Matthijs de Ligt (CB) – After de Ligt slowly gained a foothold in the pre-season fights at Juventus, he has become a key figure for the old lady. The 20-year-old has shown what potential he has and now looks like one of the best central defenders in Italy.
Blaise Matuidi (LB) – Since left-back first choice Alex Sandro is still out because of a band injury, Matuidi should continue playing. The Frenchman did a good job in Juventus' last game against Lecce and deserves another start.

Rodrigo Bentancur (CM) – The 23-year-old Bentancur, one of the best young players at Juventus, has firmly established himself as the first regular player this season. His dedication and hard work have made him an integral part of Sarri's midfield.
Miralem Pjanic (CM) – Although Pjanic has now been confirmed to leave Juventus before the next season, the midfielder still has a role to play in the club in the next few weeks. Pjanic from Barça has played more than any other midfielder for Serie A leaders this season.
Adrien Rabiot (CM) – Having had an up and down debut season in Italy, Rabiot has started the last two games, while his creativity in connecting game has been impressive. He has to impress in the run-in to make sure he'll be there next season.

Federico Bernardeschi (RW) – Bernardeschi is an excellent dribbler and a dangerous option for Juventus on the right. The winger's rapid speed is causing problems for the opposing defenders. After joining and leaving the team throughout the season, the former Fiorentina star was given a place on the grid in Juventus' first two Serie A games, and you can expect this to continue so stay.
Paulo Dybala (ST) – Dybala struggled to adapt to the game with Cristiano Ronaldo in the first year of the Portuguese star at Juventus and has excelled this season. With nine assists in the league this season, Dybala's ability to create and achieve opportunities is what makes him so important to the club.
Cristiano Ronaldo (LW) – Ronaldo is still strong at the age of 35, although his star may be only slightly receding. With his 23 leagues, only defeated by Lazaria's star Ciro Immobile at 28, Ronaldo remains a superstar and should be an absolute certainty for Juventus' starting line-up.
