Juventus XI to face Celtic

Juventus’ Claudio Marchisio is set to start against Celtic in the Champions League tonight despite being one yellow card away from suspension.

Boss Antonio Conte will place Stephan Lichtsteiner and Arturo Vidal on the bench given that they are in the same situation, but the Italian international will play in the second leg tie.

The Old Lady have one foot in the last eight of the Champions League after their 3-0 win in Glasgow last month.

With such an advantage, the tactician is expected to make changes in all areas of his side against the Scottish giants.

Luca Marrone will play in the middle of a back-three, while Mauricio Isla and Paul Pogba will start in midfield. Kwadwo Asamoah also returns after he was rested for the 1-1 draw at Napoli.

In attack, Alessandro Matri will be partnered by Fabio Quagliarella.

Juventus probable: Buffon; Barzagli, Bonucci, Marrone; Isla, Pogba, Pirlo, Marchisio, Asamoah; Quagliarella, Matri.
