According to Sky Sport Italia, Alex Sandro had been expected to start in the back four for tonight’s Champions league match.

However, the Brazilian is suffering from a stomach bug and will not be risked, so De Sciglio takes over at left-back.

Alex Sandro had scored in the opening Champions League win for Juventus away to Malmo.

Former Milan full-back De Sciglio is valued for his versatility, able to play on the right or left, allowing Danilo to remain on the right.

Juventus are also expected to give Arthur Melo his first start of the season, with American midfielder Weston McKennie returning to the line-up after 18 days.
