This is the one Bastoni comes back and we we lose 1 - 3.

Is SDV available?

I'd start Sommer - Cuntdrado - Bisseck - Acerbi - Augusto - Dimarco - Asllani - Frattesi - Mkhitaryan - Thuram - Arna

Looks like both De Vrij and Dumfries are out for about 3 weeks.

Will be interesting to see how Simone plays it. It essentially means that currently we have 7 players available for the 5 positions (back 3 + wingbacks). I assume there is little chance of Cuadrado starting 3 games so that would mean Bisseck starts at least one of the next 3 matches?

We need to make sure we keep Darmian fit as he will probably play wingback and centreback during this time.

Udinese is rather garbage these days, but they are physically very strong. Hopefully that won't put us into any trouble.

I'd start Bisseck here with Darmian next to him on the right.
Has to be. We have this "easy" match against Udinese followed by two critical games against Sociedad to determine the group winner plus away at fucking Lazio who are Limone's kryptonite.

Assuming Inzaghi won't do anything crazy (like play a youth player like Mike Aidoo), the only option is to carefully rotate Bisseck, Darmian and Cuadrado across the 2 positions.

Yup, he has to rotate. I assume Acerbi will be trusted to play all of the matches. With Bastoni, it depends on the fitness. I could see him play a part of the Udinese game, but maybe not the full 90. If that's the case, I'd rather see Augusto start with Bastoni and possibly Dimarco coming in (with Augusto taking Bastoni's spot). I think Dimarco struggles with playing 90 minutes and he's probably starting the Sociedad match anyway.

Question is whether Cuadrado is able to start 2 of the 3 games. If Cuadrado starts against Sociedad, I'm not sure he'll be able to do the same against Lazio and I just don't think Inzaghi would trust Bisseck in that game.

Poor Acerbi no break at all, I suspect Mkhitaryan will start too and then both need to be ready for Sociedad as well.
I wonder if Frattesi starts this one due to Udinese's physicality. I think Simone will want Mkhi against both Sociedad and Lazio. If that's the case, Frattesi has to start this one. He's been our most expensive signing and I don't see him sitting on the bench all 3 games. Another option is Frattesi starting the Sociedad match.

He has to. I keep saying this but we seem to be the only ones acting like playing a young player (Bisseck isn't even a youth player) is the end of the world.

FFS juve are 2 points off top having played the likes of Cambiaso, Weah, Miretti and Nicolussi regularly all season. Fucking nobodies. And all the same age or younger than Bisseck.

If this dickhead can't even be trusted to step in for 1 or 2 games against the likes of 16th placed Udinese or a crumbling, 9th placed Lazio, we should have never wasted a cent on him.

Bisseck should get a start with acerbi and augusto may well be a good replacement centerback. the rest is darmian dimarco miki barella hakan and alexis with either thuram/arna. (lautaro can getin from bench)

Any rumored XI for this fixture? Curious to see what Inzaghi does with the injuries.

Waiting for this as well. I have a feeling Arnautovic starts this one as well.

Also, recent reports say that Bastoni should be back in full training tomorrow.

If Bastoni is back, Carlos Augusto could play on the right wing.
