Paulo Dybala will reportedly partner Cristiano Ronaldo in Juventus’ attack against Ferencvaros this evening.
La Joya has seven appearances in all competitions so far this season but has only started three games since the beginning of the campaign.
He scored his only seasonal goal in the first leg against Ferencvaros in Hungary three weeks ago.
The former Palermo star has been struggling with injuries this season.
He had begun the campaign with an injury he picked up in July and suffered genitourinary and gastrointestinal problems that didn’t let him train regularly in the first months of the season.
According to Sky Sport, the Argentinean is the favourite to start alongside Cristiano Ronaldo in Juventus’ attack with Alvaro Morata who would initially start the game from the bench.
Juve can qualify for the last-16 stage with two matches in hand if they win and Dynamo Kiev fail to beat Barcelona.
Andrea Pirlo confirmed Dybala could start against Ferencvaros during today’s press conference: “He is feeling well and has been training with continuity, he did well against Cagliari, we’ll see if he starts,” the Bianconeri coach said.
Juventus’ predicted line-up against Ferencvaros:
Szczesny; Cuadrado, Danilo, De Ligt, Alex Sandro; McKennie, Bentancur, Arthur, Bernardeschi; Dybala, Ronaldo.
