How Juventus could line up against Young Boys

Sports Mole looks at how Juventus could line up for their Champions League Group H clash against Young Boys without the suspended Cristiano Ronaldo.

Juventus could make history when they welcome Young Boys to the Allianz Stadium on Tuesday night as they bid to win their opening nine games of a season for the first time ever.

The Bianconeri have already equalled their previous record - which has stood for 88 years - and will be heavy favourites to set a new benchmark by continue their 100% start to the campaign across all competitions.

Juve will have to achieve that without the Champions League all-time leading goalscorer, though, with Cristiano Ronaldo suspended for Tuesday match following his red card against Valencia last month.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Massimiliano Allegri could set his side up in Ronaldo's absence.



Possible JUV XI vs. YB

Out: Cristiano Ronaldo (suspended), Sami Khedira (thigh), Mattia De Sciglio
Doubtful: Douglas Costa (ankle)

Juventus will be relieved that Ronaldo's ban was not extended and that the only match he will miss is the one which looks easiest on paper in the group.

Allegri may have even been considering resting him along with other key players following Saturday's win over closest title challengers Napoli, which could see the likes of Giorgio Chiellini, Leonardo Bonucci and Paulo Dybala left out on Tuesday.

Douglas Costa is serving a domestic ban for spitting and has also struggled with an ankle injury since matchday one, which means that Juan Cuadrado is likely to start in the front three if there are changes, with Filippo Bernardeschi also in line to come into the side.

Miralem Pjanic scored two penalties in the win over Valencia and should keep his place with Sami Khedira still sidelined, but Emre Can could drop out to be replaced by Rodrigo Bentancur in midfield.

If Allegri does choose to rest his first-choice centre-back partnership then he has a couple of readymade replacements in Daniele Rugani and Mehdi Benatia, both of whom should be capable of keeping Young Boys at bay.
