With the host wrapped up the qualification and on top of the group table, Juventus boss is likely to make changes. Ronaldo and Paolo Dybala are likely to be rested in attack.
Rodrigo Bentancur and Weston McKennie are potentially to replace Adrien Rabiot and Arthur who are likely to receive a rest in midfield.
Legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is likely to start and this may create history to him having played 124 matches in the champion Leagues just like Paul Scholes.
