Sports Mole previews Nordsjaelland's Champions League Group E clash with Juventus on Tuesday.

Nordsjaelland welcome Juventus to Denmark on Tuesday with both sides still looking for their first victory in the Champions League this season.

Nordsjaelland have lost both of their Group E fixtures thus far to Shakhtar Donetsk and Chelsea, but they have won their last three games in their domestic league.

Meanwhile, Juventus have picked up draws against Chelsea and Shakhtar Donetsk in their first two group matches, but like Nordsjaelland, their domestic form has been exceptional this season.

The home side have never faced Italian opposition in European competition and they have gone eight games without a victory in Europe.

That is on contrast to Juventus who are yet to suffer defeat this season and have not lost in Serie A for 47 matches.

The home side have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the clash and could name the same side that started against Chelsea. Juventus, meanwhile, welcome Gianluigi Buffon and Mirko Vucinic back into the squad.

Recent form:

Nordsjaelland: WWLLW
Juventus: DWDWW

Possible lineups:

Nordsjaelland: Hansen; Parkhurst, Okore, Runje, Mtiliga; Stokholm, Adu; Lorentzen, Christensen, John; Nordstrand

Juventus: Buffon; Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini; Pirlo; Isla, Marchisio, Vidal, De Ceglie; Giovinco, Vucinic

Sports Mole says: 1-3
