THE TEAM NEWS

JUVENTUS

  • Juventus have won their last five matches in a row in all competitions but a point against Atletico here will seal top spot in Group D.
  • Cristiano Ronaldo missed the weekend win over Atalanta as he is struggling with a knee problem but he may well return to the squad here.
  • Alex Sandro, Matuidi and Rabiot are all carrying knocks at the moment and missed the Atalanta game so they will all face late fitness tests.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Szczesny; Cuadrado, Demiral, Bonucci, De Sciglio; Khedira, Pjanic, Matuidi; Ramsey, Cristiano Ronaldo, Dybala

Unavailable: Perin (Injured), Chiellini (Injured), Pjaca (Injured), Mandzukic (Out of favour), Can (Ineligible), Douglas Costa (Injured)

Doubtful: Alex Sandro (Injured), Matuidi (Injured), Rabiot (Injured), Cristiano Ronaldo (Injured), De Ligt (Injured)

ATLETICO MADRID

  • Atletico have not yet qualified for the knockout phase and they face a hard test in Turin against Group D leaders Juventus on matchday five.
  • They welcome back both Partey and Saul after suspension as they missed the weekend match in Granada and the duo are expected to start.
  • Diego Simeone has several injuries to deal with but he may rotate Arias back in for Trippier while fit-again Joao Felix could start here.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): Oblak; Arias, Felipe, Hermoso, Renan Lodi; Lemar, Saul, Partey, Koke; Alvaro Morata, Joao Felix

Unavailable: Borja Garces (Injured), Savic (Injured), Vrsaljko (Injured), Diego Costa (Injured)

Doubtful: Gimenez (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

The reverse fixture was an entertaining 2-2 draw between these two and this could be another quality affair. Juventus are arguably in better form now than they were then although Atletico may be more circumspect on their travels so this could easily be another stalemate which would suit both teams.
