Juventus name first starting line-up of 2020


Maurizio Sarri has picked his first starting XI of the new decade at Juventus against Cagliari, which includes very few notable surprises.

Merih Demiral, who the club have been adamant will not leave this month, starts at centre-back alongside Leonardo Bonucci ahead of Matthijs de Ligt.

Adrien Rabiot has also been linked with a departure but he too features, while there is no place for Gonzalo Higuaín in a Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala-led attack.

Aaron Ramsey also starts for just the fourth time in Serie A this season.
