A 4-3-3 Juventus for Real?

Tuttosport are claiming Juventus will line up with a 4-3-3 in Tuesday’s Champions League game against Real Madrid.

Boss Antonio Conte surprisingly fielded such a shape in Madrid during the 2-1 loss and, although he has since reverted back to a 3-5-2 in Serie A, he seems intent on fielding a trident attack again.

The Turin daily is suggesting Martin Caceres will be fielded as the right-back, with Leonardo Bonucci coming in for the suspended Giorgio Chiellini in the middle.

On the left, Angelo Ogbonna and Federico Peluso are in competition for the full-back shirt.

The midfield trio will be made up of Andrea Pirlo, Paul Pogba and Arturo Vidal.

Claudio Marchisio will be used in an advanced attacking position on the right, with Carlos Tevez on the left.

Fernando Llorente, who scored in the first game, will battle with Fabio Quagliarella for the centre-forward role.

The Turin giants have collected just two points from their three European Cup ties so far this term.

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

Real Madrid probable: Casillas; Arbeloa, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Modric, Alonso, Khedira; Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo.
