Juventus revert to Chelsea XI

Juventus will reportedly field the same starting XI who took on Chelsea when they face Shakhtar Donetsk.

The Old Lady returned to the Champions League at Stamford Bridge two weeks ago and collected a creditable 2-2 draw after coming from 2-0 down.

According to speculation on Monday, Conte will keep the faith with the men who started in London on that night.

The Turin giants will hold their first ever Champions League game at the Juventus Stadium on Tuesday.

Boss Conte should thus make three changes from the team that beat Roma 4-1 on Saturday. Stephan Lichtsteiner and Kwadwo Asamoah should replace Martin Caceres and Paolo De Ceglie on the flanks.

In attack, Sebastian Giovinco is in pole position to replace Alessandro Matri alongside Mirko Vucinic.

Juventus probable: Buffon; Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini; Lichtsteiner, Vidal, Pirlo, Marchisio, Asamoah; Vucinic, Giovinco.
