Juventus host Copenhagen at the Juventus Stadium in Turin hoping to collect a victory as they have failed on doing so since the beginning of the group stages as they are at the bottom of Group B having lost 1 match and drawn the remaining 3 matches.
The Italian side are rampaging Serie A with no losses suffered so far and are in pole position of the league thanks to a 2-0 victory that gives Juventus 34 points just 1 more than their nearest rivals As.Roma.
The side of Antonio Conte are hoping they can replicate their Italian league success and spread it to the Champions League as anything other than a victory might see them being eliminated from the tournament despite being at these early stages.
Possible Starting XI
Buffon; Caceres, Vidal, Chiellini; De Ceglie, Pogba, Pirlo, Marchisio, Asamoah; Tevez, Llorente
Wiland, Jacobsen, Bengtsson, Mellberg, Sigurdsson, De Souza, Delaney, Gislason, Vetokele, Braathen
The last time they met Quagliarella rescued 1 point for Juventus as he tied the match and cancelled Jorgensen’s 1st half goal. Both sides are in need of victories so expect them go to all out in the attack in search of the vital goal that can keep their qualification hopes alive.
Fernando Llorente is on fine form as he has been the main goal-scoring player of Juventus so there is little doubt that he will be selected upfront alongside Carlos Tevez. Meanwhile for Copenhagen Igor Vetakele and the 31 years old Daniel Braathen are expected to be chosen as their preferred options on the attacking department.
The quality of players that Antonio Conte has at his disposal are undeniable and the fine form they are going through in Serie A makes them hands down the favorites on not only winning this match but also progress into the next rounds of the Champions League.
Copenhagen’s goalkeeper Johan Wiland almost single handedly denied the victory for the Italian side in their 1st leg and now with nothing to lose, Juventus will be firing from all cycilenders in search for the crucial win. They should be able to push ahead and come out as the winning side.
