      The Juventus coach previews tomorrow evening's game against SPAL

      TEAM FOR TOMORROW

      "Perin plays in goal, whilst in attack Mandzukic and Ronaldo will definitely play. Ronaldo is doing well, I haven't paid attention to the Ballon d'Or nominations but for me he would deserve to win it for what he has done. He has brought a high degree of competitiveness to training, and as a result everyone has raised their attention to detail.

      "Dybala arrived back on Thursday, he did a recovery session yesterday so the chances are that he'll begin the match on the bench. His first goal for Argentina was a step forward for him, Paulo is constantly improving since the first year he arrived. This season has started very well, he is in excellent physical and mental moment, his growth shouldn't stop but it depends on his will. He plays his best when he is playing deeper, as he is able to influence the game and finish chances created by his teammates. 

      "Chiellini is getting better with age. We have to manage things as we have three games in a week so we'll see if he plays tomorrow. Otherwise one of Rugani and Benatia will start instead. Matuidi arrives back today, he needed rest so it's likely that tomorrow he'll start the game from the bench."

      PLAYERS OUT OF ACTION

      "Khedira is out but if all goes well, we'll see him again in two weeks. Bernardeschi will not be in the squad for SPAL, but he might make the one against Valencia. Emre Can should have at least 20-30 minutes in him, in a couple of weeks."

      THE NEXT SEVEN GAMES IN SERIE A

      "I'm happy with what we're doing. Now these next seven league games will be important, there is still a lot to do. To keep the six-point advantage over Napoli in the standings we have to win. It is not about a show of strength, simply to win."
