Juventus managed to snatch a point in Denmark but they were expected to do better, looking at their amazing form on the domestic front. Unbeaten in all competitions this season and buzzing from three wins in a row, La Vecchia Signora will be keen to inflict misery on Turkish giants Galatasaray.
The latter surprisingly put on an awful show in Istanbul and eventually suffered humiliation in the hands of Real Madrid. However, the appointment of former Manchester City coach Roberto Mancini has boosted the club. The moment to bounce back and prove their value in Europe is now.
In the last decade, Juve and Gala have met twice – with the Italians winning 2-1 in Turin thanks to goals from the legendary Del Piero. With the array of talent that the Old Lady’s current squad possesses, Antonio Conte will be hoping to get his first full points of the 2013/14 UEFA Champions League campaign.
Juventus’ probable starting XI: Buffon; Chiellini, Bonucci, Barzagli; Asamoah, Pogba, Pirlo, Vidal, Lichtsteiner; Tevez, Vucinic
Galatasaray’s probable starting XI: Muslera; Eboue, Chedjou, Nounkeu, Riera; Melo, Inan, Amrabat, Sneijder; Drogba, Yilmaz
