Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has returned to the Juventus squad for his side's Champions League clash with Nordsjaelland on Tuesday.

The 34-year-old stopper picked up a muscular injury on international duty last week and missed Saturday's 2-0 win over Napoli as a result of the issue.

It had been suggested that the veteran could miss up to a month with the injury, but he has been named in the squad.

However, Stephan Lichsteiner and Kwadwo Asamoah have been left out with ankle complaints.

Juventus have gained two points from their opening two Group E fixtures.
