Line-ups: Juventus-Copenhagen

Juventus have Carlos Tevez, Fernando Llorente and Arturo Vidal for their must-win Champions League tie with Copenhagen.

It kicks off in Turin at 19.45 GMT and the Bianconeri have no choice but to get three points or say goodbye to qualification.

Antonio Conte’s men have put some strong performances in, but are still without a victory in Group B, so sit bottom with three points from four games.

Copenhagen and Galatasaray both have four points and Real Madrid 10, so it is a three-way fight for the second qualifying spot.

Juve drew 1-1 in Copenhagen in their opening game back in September and the Danes have warned they’ll try to strike on the counter-attack here.

Andrea Barzagli, Stephan Lichtsteiner Mauricio Isla, Sebastian Giovinco and Simone Pepe are out of action, but Leonardo Bonucci returns after his suspension against Livorno on Sunday.

Martin Caceres completes the back three with Simone Padoin taking the right-wing role, leaving Angelo Ogbonna on the bench.

Mirko Vucinic made his comeback at the weekend, but on-form duo Tevez and Llorente remain the strike partners.

Vidal is picked in midfield despite concerns over his disciplinary record, as a booking would see him ruled out of the decisive final trip to Galatasaray.

Copenhagen are without Daniel Braaten due to a thigh problem, but they are in good shape after five consecutive domestic wins.

Olof Mellberg is in their line-up, a familiar face to Juve fans from 2008-09.

Juventus: Buffon; Caceres, Bonucci, Chiellini; Padoin, Vidal, Pirlo, Pogba, Asamoah; Tevez, Llorente

Juventus bench: Storari, Ogbonna, Peluso, De Ceglie, Marchisio, Quagliarella, Vucinic

Copenhagen: Wiland; Jacobsen, Mellberg, R Sigurdsson, Bengtsson; Gislason, Claudemir, Delaney, Bolanos, Toutouh; N Jorgensen

Copenhagen bench: J Jensen, Margreitter, Remmer, Kristensen, Santin, Pourie, Amankwaa
