Team News

Juventus forward Paulo Dybala, who was recently voted Serie A's Most Valuable Player for the 2019-20 season, will be hopeful of shaking off a thigh complaint in time to lead the line for the Old Lady.

Sarri will still be without the services of Mattia De Sciglio, and Douglas Costa has also been ruled out through the thigh injury he picked up against Udinese.

Sarri fielded a heavily-weakened team for the final-day showdown with Roma but will revert back to full-strength here, with Matthijs de Ligt in line to return to the defence despite struggling with a shoulder problem.
Juventus possible starting lineup:
Szczesny; Cuadrado, Bonucci, De Ligt, Sandro; Bentancur, Pjanic, Rabiot; Bernardeschi, Dybala, Ronaldo

As for Lyon, left-back Youssouf Kone remains on the treatment table, while first-leg hero Tousart has now joined up with his teammates at Hertha Berlin.

Marcelo and Kenny Tete are both doubts for Garcia's men, but Memphis Depay is expected feature after missing the first leg through injury, meaning that Karl Toko Ekambi could drop down to the bench.
Lyon possible starting lineup:
Lopes; Dubois, Denayer, Andersen, Marcal; Aouar, Mendes; Cornet, Reine-Adelaide, Depay; Dembele
Lyon Champions League form: WLWLDW

Prediction: Juventus 3-0 Lyon
