The former Juve man has become a talisman for Palermo over the course of his time there, but this year has only seen six goals from the former 19-goal scorer. He has supplied eight assists, which is joint-fifth in the league. The most recent of those assists came on Josip Ilicic's winner last week against Inter.
If Palermo are to stand a chance at a smash-and-grab point (or three), Miccoli will have to be on the top of his game, both as an orchestrator and as a finisher. Otherwise, a loss could place his team in a tenuous position in relation to the drop.
Acquired from Chievo as part of a winter transfer binge meant to stave off relegation, Sorrentino is one of the better goalkeepers in Serie A. Last year, he kept Juve to a 1-1 draw in the Juventus Stadium with a string of great saves, so he knows what it takes to keep Juve at bay in their backyard.
A team with a strong keeper is always one with a chance at an upset, and while the defense in front of him is not stellar, they've only let up two goals in their last five matches.
If Sorrentino can match the Juve front line, which often lacks bite, it could be a close match to the finish.
The other link up top in Palermo's attack, Ilicic seemed to have slowed down ever since Javier Pastore's move to PSG, but he's scored 10 times this season and has generally been the Rosaneri's best player.
The Slovenian midfielder won last week's game against Inter with an early strike, and Juve knows all too well from previous encounters that giving him space to shoot is to invite trouble. If he and Miccoli are in top form, the Bianconeri could be in for an interesting day in the back.
