UEFA Champions League returns today in Group H, as Juventus travel to face Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge with both the teams hoping to top the group.
Juventus are the current leader of the group being three points clear of the Premier League side.
Although, Juventus had a disappointing start to the season in Serie A, the Bianconeri are yet to lose any game in the Champions League this season, having won 12 out of 12 points.
Massimiliano Allegri and team will take on Chelsea today in a match scheduled around 20:45 Italian time. The main aim is to win the game which could decide who will finish at the top of the group.
After missing Lazio match due to an injury from international duties with Argentina, Paulo Dybala returns in Juventus squad as he hopes to get some minutes today.
Juventus will be without Danilo who’s set to be out of action at least for two months.
Giorgio Chiellini, Aaron Ramsey, Federico Bernardeschi and Mattia de Sciglio are all out of today’s match.
EXPECTED STARTING XI
Even though Juventus played with three at the back in the win against Lazio on Saturday, today they’ll possibly play with back four with Leonardo Bonucci and Matthijs de Ligt in the centre of the defence.
Juan Cuadrado will surely start as a right back following Danilo’s injury, and Alex Sandro is probably set to retain his starting position ahead of Luca Pellegrini who started the game against Lazio.
In form Weston McKennie hopes to make his fourth start in a row for Juventus in all competitions, but probably as a right midfielder since Rodrigo Bentancur who hasn’t started in the last three games might accompany Manuel Locatelli in the midfield.
Adrien Rabiot could start as well from the left flank of the midfield, with Álvaro Morata and Federico Chiesa leading the front-line today.
JUVENTUS PROBABLE XI (4-4-2)
Szczesny – Cuadrado, Bonucci, De Ligt, Alex Sandro – McKennie, Bentancur, Locatelli, Adrien Rabiot – Álvaro Morata, Federico Chiesa.
