Del Neri to give Amauri Coppa Italia chance.
Juventus coach Luigi Del Neri is showing faith in Amauri, who is expected to start against Roma in the Coppa Italia.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claims he may be flanked by either Alessandro Del Piero or Vincenzo Iaquinta, with Milos Krasic likely to be rested ahead of the weekend clash with Udinese.

Simone Pepe will set off from the right side with Claudio Marchisio on the opposite side. Felipe Melo and Alberto Aquilani will hold the midfield.

Frederik Sorensen, Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini and Fabio Grosso complete the back line.

Meanwhile, Roma coach Claudio Ranieri will make a last minute decision on whether to play Jeremy Menez in place of Marco Borriello.

Il Corriere dello Sport claims the Italian suffered a problem to his meniscus against Cagliari at the weekend, but he could be in contention to start in Turin.

Simone Perrotta, Daniele De Rossi, Rodrigo Taddei and Matteo Brighi are all expected to start.
