Alessandro Nesta has already withdrawn with an ankle problem whilst it looks increasingly likely that Alessandro Del Piero will also be unavailable after picking up a similar problem in the Juventus versus Parma game on Sunday.
Coach Trapattoni has admitted that he will start with Perugia's player of the year Marco Materazzi but team-mate Fabio Liverani will only be a substitute.
A late fitness test will be performed on Del Piero but Juventus general manager Luciano Moggi has already stated that the club would prefer that the mercurial forward is not risked.
