Juventus fluffed the chance to secure the title last time out against Udinese, but they’ll know they will win their ninth successive Scudetto if they beat Sampdoria on Sunday.

Atalanta were unable to cut the deficit to three points when they drew 1-1 with Milan on Friday, and while the title race is still open mathematically, Juventus should secure the trophy on Sunday night.

Here is the team that could clinch the title against Sampdoria

Wojciech Szczesny (GK): The Pole is a world class goalkeeper and will be key to their hopes of securing the title on Sunday.

Juan Cuadrado (RB): The tricky right-winger has been totally remodelled into a marauding right-back now, he’ll come in for Danilo who hasn’t looked great recently.

Leonardo Bonucci (CB): Juve were without the experienced centre-back against Udinese, and they seriously missed. Now he is back and should slot in alongside…

Matthijs de Ligt (CB): The Dutch wonderkid struggled when he joined the Old Lady initially, but since the turn of the year he has looked composed in Juventus’ back four, scoring last time out.

Alex Sandro (LB): One of the best left-backs in world football, Sandro will always start when available.

Blaise Matuidi (CDM): The Frenchman is getting on a bit now, but he still performs an important role in Sarri’s side. He will come in to replace Aaron Ramsey.

Rodrigo Bentancur (CM): The key man in Juventus’ midfield, the Uruguayan will be a staple of the Turin side’s midfield for the foreseeable future.

Adrien Rabiot (CM): It took Rabiot a long time to get a chance in Sarri’s midfield, but in recent weeks he has looked really good in middle of the park, scoring a delightful solo goal against Milan.

Federico Bernardeschi (RW): The winger has been linked with a move to Napoli as a make-weight for Arkadiusz Milik recently, but for now he will look to cause havoc down Juve’s right hand-side.

Paulo Dybala (CF): The Argentine striker has looked fantastic in recent weeks, and has developed a partnership of sorts with Ronaldo. He will be key to winning this game.

Cristiano Ronaldo (LW): I mean it’s Ronaldo, of course he’ll start.
