That result has become even more crucial after the 2-0 home defeat to Atalanta.
Max Allegri tinkers with Juventus again in the Coppa Italia semi-final, changing to 3-4-1-2 with Gonzalo Higuain facing Arek Milik’s Napoli.

These sides have never shared the spoils in Turin during a Coppa Italia tie, as Juventus won three and lost one.
It means this evening Christian Maggio and Ivan Strinic get rare starts at full-back, while Marko Rog is also given a chance to shine.
Naturally all eyes will be on Pipita, who comes to face with his former teammates after walking away in a €90m deal last summer.
It kicks off at 19.45 GMT,

It’s a fine way to mark his 23rd birthday, partnering Lorenzo Insigne and Jose Callejon, while there’s no rest for Marek Hamsik either.
This is the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final, though the date of the return leg hasn’t been finalised yet.
In fact, these sides haven’t played a draw since the 1-1 at the San Paolo on March 1, 2013, followed by three Napoli successes – including the Italian Super Cup – and five Bianconeri victories.
Napoli miss Allan, Lorenzo Tonelli and suspended full-back Elseid Hysaj, but Maurizio Sarri needs to rotate his squad ahead of Saturday’s Serie A showdown with second-placed Roma.
Napoli: Reina; Maggio, Albiol, Koulibaly, Strinic; Rog, Diawara, Hamsik; Callejon, Milik, Insigne
The big news is that Milik gets his first start since rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee during international duty in October.
Claudio Marchisio, Stefano Sturaro and Medhi Benatia are out injured, while Andrea Barzagli and Gigi Buffon are rested.
