Conte to start Vucinic on the Juventus wing?

Following their 0-0 draw against Chievo in Verona, Antonio Conte may alter his tactics when Juventus hosts Genoa at the Juventus Stadium on Saturday.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Conte is preparing to switch Montenegrin Mirko Vucinic to a wider role. This comes following the injury to Emanuele Giaccherini, which may keep him out of this weekend’s clash, plus the stuttering form of Milos Krasic, who once again failed to hit any great heights against Chievo.
Conte told Sky Italia after the Chievo match: “We are working intensely with Krasic, who has quality and it’s up to me to bring that out. I’ll work with all my strength to make him a key player for Juventus.”
It is believed Conte will stick with the 4-1-4-1 system, with Pepe and Vucinic out wide. The ex-Roma man is accustomed to the role following his days in the capital, while the former captain does not believe Eljero Elia and Marcelo Estigarribia are quite ready to start.
Should Conte make the move, it will open the door for striker Alessandro Matri to make a return to the starting line-up. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
