Alessandro Del Piero: rolling back the years?Juventus stalwart Alessandro Del Piero could be in line for a rare league start when the leaders host third-placed Udinese following his superb strike in the Coppa Italia in midweek.
Del Piero netted his first goal at Juve's new stadium in Tuesday's 3-0 quarter-final win over Roma and with Mirko Vucinic and Fabio Quagliarella not fully fit, the 37-year-old hopes ex-team mate-turned-coach Antonio Conte again gives him the nod.
"If you had asked me to imagine my first goal in our new stadium, I would have dreamt it like that," Juve's record scorer Del Piero said on his own website.
"I've scored my first goal. Let's say it is a good start..."
Juve are hoping to wrap up the re-signing of Sevilla defender Martin Caceres but the Uruguayan may not move in time for Saturday.
Udinese trail Juve by three points after an astonishing first half of the campaign despite selling Alexis Sanchez and Gokhan Inler, two of their best three players, in the close season.
