Juventus switch to 4-3-1-2?

Juventus boss Antonio Conte is considering the use of a 4-3-1-2 system in this evening’s Champions League test at Real Madrid.

After the 4-2 defeat at Fiorentina on Sunday, the tactician is reportedly thinking about abandoning his 3-5-2 at the Bernabeu.

Uruguayan international Martin Caceres could be fielded at right-back after he returned from injury, with Giorgio Chiellini being pushed over to the left-back spot from his usual centre-back duties.

Claudio Marchisio, meanwhile, will be asked to play in a more advanced midfield role to support a tandem attack of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente.

Juventus have picked up just two draws against FC Copenhagen and Galatasaray in the Champions League so far this term. Real have a 100 per cent record.

Juventus probable: Buffon; Caceres, Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini; Vidal, Pirlo, Pogba; Marchisio; Tevez, Llorente.

Real Madrid probable: Casillas; Arbeloa, Pepe, Varane, Marcelo; Khedira, Illarramendi, Modric; Di Maria, Benzema, Ronaldo
