Allegri considers formation change following a plague of injuries
- Italian boss faces a real challenge of having to tweak his team due to injury crisis
- Max could move from a more common 4-3-3 to 4-4-2 as both Miralem Pjanic and Sami Khedira have been injured and there's a hole in the park now
Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri seems to be getting ready for tactical overhaul ahead of Serie A showdown with SPAL, which is scheduled to take place shortly after the International break ends.
Injury-ridden Juve will have to do without the likes of Sami Khedira and Miralem Pjanic, whose history of injuries goes way back.

Italian newspaper Tuttosport believe that Allegri is considering a tactical change – switching formation from his typical 4-3-3 to a 4-4-2 to counter any potential shortcomings in the park - Rodrigo Bentancur and Blaise Matuidi will cement the middle of the park, while Alex Sandro and Juan Cuadrado will be delegated left and right respectively.
Should Max Allegri elect 4-4-2, Mario Mandzukic and Cristiano Ronaldo will play up front. Ex-Croatian international has recently recuperated from the injury he picked up shortly before Juve's October CL trip to the Old Trafford.
