Team News

Juventus
With qualification wrapped up, and finishing first in the group an unlikely prospect, Pirlo is likely to ring the changes ahead of Saturday's Turin derby against Torino.

Morata was sent off in the weekend's 1-1 draw at Benevento, so is likely to start against Kiev due to being suspended against Torino, with Ronaldo and Paolo Dybala rested in attack.

Adrien Rabiot and Arthur are likely to receive a rest in midfield, with Rodrigo Bentancur and Weston McKennie potentially replacing them, while it would be no surprise to see a heavily-rotated defence, too, though Merih Demiral and Giorgio Chiellini's muscle injuries do not help Pirlo's cause in that area of the pitch.

Legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon could join Paul Scholes on 124 matches in the Champions League and move into the top ten record appearance holders in Europe's elite competition.
Juventus possible starting lineup:
Buffon; Cuadrado, Danilo, Bonucci, Frabotta; Bentancur, McKennie; Bernardeschi, Chiesa, Kulusevski; Morata
Juventus Champions League form: WLWW
Juventus form (all competitions): WWDWWD

Dynamo Kiev
The visitors, meanwhile, have their own injuries to contend with. Volodymyr Kostevych (knee), Oleksandr Tymchyk (abductor), Nazariy Rusyn (collarbone) and Mykyta Burda (Achilles) are all out for Lucescu's side.

Star man Viktor Tsygankov returned to the side at the weekend, scoring in a 2-0 win over Vorskla, having missed last week's defeat to Barcelona.
Dynamo Kiev possible starting lineup:
Bushchan; Kedziora, Popov, Zabarnyi, Mykolenko; Andriyevskyi, Shaparenko; Tsygankov, Shepelev, De Pena; Verbic
Dynamo Kiev Champions League form: LDLL
Dynamo Kiev form (all competitions): WLLWLW

Prediction: Juventus 2-1 Dynamo Kiev
