Team News

Injured Leonardo Bonucci withdrew from the Italy squad for the recent Nations League games and remains out for Juventus, while both Federico Chiesa and Giorgio Chiellini pulled out of the game against Lazio and Italy's internationals with thigh injuries. Chiesa, though, returned from the bench on Saturday.

Aaron Ramsey has not played since the game in Budapest, also due to a thigh problem, and is not yet ready to return.

Defender Matthijs de Ligt was sidelined since undergoing surgery on his right shoulder in August but resumed full contact training before the break and started in Serie A. Left-back Alex Sandro also returned to Andrea Pirlo's squad after recovering from an injury suffered in mid-September and could feature on Tuesday.

Paulo Dybala missed international duty with Argentina due to an infection but was on the bench against Cagliari and will contend with Morata for a start.
Juventus possible starting lineup:
Szczesny; Cuadrado, Demiral, De Ligt, Danilo; Chiesa, Bentancur, McKennie, Bernardeschi; Morata, Ronaldo
Juventus Champions League form: WLW
Juventus form (all competitions): DLWWDW

Last time, Ferencvaros effectively mirrored Juve's 4-3-3 formation but Serhiy Rebrov may be more tempted to revert to a 4-1-4-1 setup away from home.

National team heroes Siger, Lovrencsics and Botka are all set to feature, with Norwegian forward Tokmac Nguen supporting lone striker Franck Boli from out wide. Itinerant midfielder Marcel Heister will expect a start after his blockbuster strike in the Budapest derby but must vie with Brazilian veteran Somalia for an engine room slot.
Ferencvaros possible starting lineup:
Dibusz; Lovrencsics, Blazic, Dvali, Botka; Kharatin; Heister, Siger, Uzuni, Nguen; Boli
Ferencvaros Champions League form: LDL
Ferencvaros form (all competitions): DDLWWW

Prediction: Juventus 3-0 Ferencvaros
