Vidal to start against Benfica?

Arturo Vidal is in line to make his return to the Juventus starting line-up against Benfica, whilst Martin Caceres will again come in for Andrea Barzagli.

Chilean midfielder Vidal has been restricted to brief appearances from the bench in recent weeks as he has been dealing with a minor knee injury causing discomfort.

On from appearing as a substitute in each of Juve’s last three League games, speculation from the Gazzetta dello Sport is that Vidal could be in line for a start in this evening’s Europa League semi-final second leg.

If the 26-year-old does make it, Claudio Marchisio looks set to drop out.

Andrea Barzagli has been included in the matchday squad also, but speculation is that he will drop out in favour of Martin Caceres returning to the first XI, whilst Stephan Lichtsteiner is seen by Tuttosport as in line to replace Mauricio Isla too.

Probable Juventus XI to face Benfica: Buffon, Caceres, Bonucci, Chiellini; Lichtsteiner, Pogba, Pirlo, Vidal, Asamoah; Tevez, Llorente
