Competition: Champions League Date: Tuesday 22nd November 2016 Venue: Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium Kick-Off: 19:45 GMT
Sevilla are without injured duo Michael Krohn-Dehli and Benoît Trémoulinas but will hope Samir Nasri is available to return after the Frenchman missed the weekend’s victory over Deportivo.
Jorge Sampaoli has selected four different formations for his Champions League games this term and could utilise a four-man defence that secured a goalless draw with Juventus in the reverse match.
Juventus’ biggest problem is the absence of both Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala, which means Max Allegri may have to use 16-year-old Moise Kean alongside Mario Mandzukic or revert to 4-3-3.
The Turin giants are also without Marko Pjaca, Andrea Barzagli and Mehdi Benatia but will recall a wealth of big names after resting them at the weekend.
Sevilla have not been affected by Unai Emery’s move to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer and have come from strength-to-strength under Jorge Sampaoli. Currently flying high in La Liga, the Andalusian side sit two-points clear of Juventus at the top of the group and a victory tomorrow would seal their top-spot.
Juventus, meanwhile, have been far from their best this season and a 1-1 draw with Lyon could cost them top-spot. Whilst they’ve won ten of their last 12 matches in all competitions, Max Allegri’s side are yet to show their best this season and aren’t yet looking like contenders to win Europe’s biggest prize.
With Sevilla having won seven of their last eight matches at home, Sampaoli’s men will hope to secure all three points tomorrow.
Rico, Mariano, Pareja, Rami, Escudero, Iborra, Kranevitter, N’Zonzi, Vitolo, Vietto, Nasri
Buffon, Rugani, Bonucci, Chiellini, Alves, Pjanic, Hernanes, Khedira, Sandro, Kean, Mandzukic
Sevilla have kept a clean sheet in their last 5 matches in the Champions League.
Juventus are undefeated in their last 6 matches in the Champions League.
