New recruits Antonio Rudiger and Aurelien Tchouameni are both expected to participate in the game.
Juventus: After the bad news of the injury of Paul Pogba who is expected to miss the next six to eight weeks, Massimiliano Allegri will rely on Zakaria and the United States international Weston McKennie in the middle of the field. Dusan Vlahovic and Angel Di Maria well played against FC Barcelona and Juventus fans expect a lot from them, while Federico Chiesa is still recovering from his ACL injury and is expected to be back next month to start again and train with the rest of the team.
Real Madrid are favorites also considering that Juventus are still working to integrate new signings into the squad. TAKE: Real Madrid 2, Juventus 1.
