|Mario Lemina is set to be given a chance in the Juventus midfield following the serious injury suffered by Claudio Marchisio against Palermo on Sunday.
The Gabon international, who is on loan from Ligue 1 side Marseille, came on as a substitute for the Italy midfielder after he damaged his cruciate ligament and Massimiliano Allegri is expected to play the 22-year-old from the start as the Bianconeri host Lazio on Wednesday evening.
Lemina has featured in eight previous league games this season, scoring two goals, and is set to get the nod over Hernanes and Stefano Sturaro.
Elsewhere, Patrice Evra and Juan Cuadrado are expected to be rested with Alex Sandro and Stephan Lichtsteiner filling in on the flanks.
