Sports Mole looks ahead to Wednesday's Champions League meeting between Juventus and Galatasaray in Group B.

Juventus will be eager to earn their first Champions League win of the season on Wednesday when they entertain Galatasaray in Group B.

The Italian champions are unbeaten in their last eight matches in all competitions, but they could only draw 1-1 with FC Copenhagen in their European opener two weeks ago in Denmark.

Galatasaray, who were thrashed 6-1 by Real Madrid last time out, will have Roberto Mancini in the dugout for the first time after the Italian was appointed as their new manager on Monday.

The former Manchester City boss replaced Fatih Terim, who was sacked on September 24 following a third spell in charge of the Turks.

The big injury news is that Carlos Tevez is unlikely to feature for the hosts due to the ankle problem that he picked up during Sunday's 1-0 win over Torino in Serie A.
