A line-up without Milito? If there's no suspension that I don't know about we'll not see this happening. And for good reason! i know so many of you people reeeeeally want Mario to play but please, think about the form of our forwards and one name should come to mind when thinking about who DOESN'T deserve to play in our starting line-up...

Resting Milito would make sense to me...

Exactly, it is against Juve but after all it is a Coppa game. Milito should definitely be rested here along with couple half-injured players. Do not forget we have a hard away match to Parma 3 days later.

I always have a bad feeling when we go into a match with super high morale, but I really wish we thrash them.

I agree that we're better off resting Milito. I would like to see Arnautovic get at least 45 minutes though; maybe pair him up with Balo or Pandev and see if he play the more advanced striker role. If Stankovic gets back on time, he should start too, get a few minutes in.

i actually think we should rest stankovic knowing the jerks of juve and in their hopeless situation they will play rough and he risks getting injured again

I think that most of you underestimate Juventus. I mean, yes, they are having lots of problems now, but they are still Juventus and can surprise us. Let's use the usual starting XI's with 1-2 changes and trash them ;).

I would love to see that, but it won't happen.

I think Krihn is injured for a while, plus let's not forget that only one youngster played against Livorno last round (Donati) so I doubt many will play against Jube. It wouldn't suprise to see Santon as RB and Muntari LB. I think Lucio and Sneijder will play.

Its not about underestimation. Just that its Coppa Italia and we hope to see some youngsters perform there. I believe we should have a simple strategy in Coppa, either play the full strength or youngsters. We should not change the strategy based on our opponent.

Stevanovic and Arnautovic should get a chance. They have at least shown that they deserve more minutes.

I'm all for giving younger player a chance but two of them in the starting XI would be quite enough, because I still want to trash jube no matter if it's coppa or CL. They need to be thought a lesson.

Totally. It would be hard see Arna starting, since he has to please Mario/Eto'o/Quaresma/Mancini as well

It's a fact that Lucio and Sneijder will play, as they can't on the weekend, so my lineup would be something like this:

-----------Balotelli----------
Arnautovic-Sneijder-----Eto'o
-----Khrin--------Zanetti----
Santon---Matrix-Lucio-Donati
----------Toldo-------------

Bench: Belec, Cordoba, Maicon, Cambiasso, Stankovic, Stevanovic, Crisetig, Quaresma

Krhin is still injured I think.

I wouldn't be suprised to see Mario get a chance, if he aplies himself well in trainings. I would be suprised though to see Arnautovic there, and especialy in 4-2-3-1 formation playing on the wing. Our left side would be exploited a lot, because Mario and Arnautovic are not hard working man, and I think we would have the same problems that we had in Siena/Bari game - the midfield easily exploited.

Balo as striker would be interesting to watch. Dont think it will happen though.

I want Balo as a striker. He exploded into the scene by scoring twice against Juve 2 seasons ago if you remember. And I want him to do the same come Thursday!

Yeah, I would also play balo as a striker.. Rest the most important players for the match against parma... Since Sneijder and Luci are suspended, than we should play them against jube as well...
