Juventus hope to bounce back to winning ways in Serie A after back-to-back losses when they host Crotone at the Juventus Stadium on Monday.

Juve's last Serie A game was an away defeat to Napoli for the second consecutive year has brought the holders down to earth. That was followed by yet another loss in the first leg of their round-of-16 clash in the Champions League.

Having trailed both the Milan sides for much of the season, the Bianconeri remain considerably behind the top contenders.

Inter Milan are leading at the top with 50 points followed by AC Milan on 49, while Andrea Pirlo's side are on fourth with 42. However, Juve have a game in hand over their rivals.

Luckily for them, the next few games are against sides languishing in the bottom-half of the table and the Turin giants will be aiming to earn maximum points.

Crotone frustrated the mighty Juventus with a 1-1 draw at home back in October. However, that was clearly a false dawn as the promoted side currently languish rock-bottom in the table with just three wins and 12 points from 22 games.

In what's only their third-ever season in the top-flight, the Squali look well set to head back down to Serie B on current form.
