The doctors gave the okay to Andrea Barzagli. The player has quickly recovered from minor injury that put him out in the National. But Conte could not even risk Barzagli in the match against Palermo . The Central Defender, a former Rosanero, is experiencing a period of quite extraordinary form, winning as the best element in defense with the Swiss Lichtsteiner. For this Conte would give a day off to Andrea because of the upcoming busy games, especially against Lazio. 

If Barzagli rests, Chiellini would take his place as a Central flanked of course by Bonucci. On the left one should play between De Ceglie and Estigarribia , which Conte would prove as a left-back.

Also for the midfield could be some interesting implications. Pirlo has played both matches in the national team and is not excluded then to stop for a round, who from the beginning of the championship has not stopped a second. Conte would return to his open-minded 4-4-2, with Vidal and Marchisio in the middle, and Pepe and Estigarribia on the wings. Up front, the usual Vucinic and Matri, with Quagliarella increasingly eager to play and score.
