How Juventus could line up against Lokomotiv Moscow

Sports Mole looks at how Juventus could line up in Tuesday's Champions League clash with Lokomotiv Moscow.

Juventus will be looking to consolidate first spot at the top of Group D when they welcome Lokomotiv Moscow to Turin in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The Old Lady have drawn with Atletico Madrid and beaten Bayer Leverkusen in their two European matches this season to top the section with four points.

Maurizio Sarri's side have won their last six matches in all competitions, meanwhile, and will fancy their chances of overcoming their Russian opponents in this week's European affair.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Juve could line up for the Champions League clash.


Out: Giorgio Chiellini (knee), Mattia Perin (shoulder), Mattia De Sciglio (thigh)
Doubtful: Douglas Costa (muscle), Marko Pjaca (knee), Aaron Ramsey (groin)

Juve remain without the likes of Giorgio Chiellini, Mattia Perin and Mattia De Sciglio, while Douglas Costa and Marko Pjaca are also unlikely to be available for selection on Tuesday night.

Aaron Ramsey is another doubt for the Italian champions as the Wales international looks to overcome the groin injury that forced him to miss his country's two recent internationals, in addition to Saturday's clash with Bologna.

Blaise Matuidi for Adrien Rabiot is a change that could happen from their weekend Serie A affair, although Juan Cuadrado is expected to continue at right-back despite Danilo's return to fitness.

Cristiano Ronaldo is, of course, a certain starter in the final third of the field, and the Portuguese is likely to be joined by Gonzalo Higuain and Federico Bernardeschi as part of a front three.

Miralem Pjanic and Sami Khedira should both keep their spots in the middle of the park with Emre Can left out of the squad for the group stages of the Champions League.

Paulo Dybala and Rodrigo Bentancur are two players pushing to be involved in the starting XI, although it seems unlikely that Sarri will make too many alterations due to Lokomotiv's quality.
