Champions League Liveblog: Malmo-Juventus and Villarreal-Atalanta

The Bianconeri have had a dismal start to the Serie A season under Max Allegri, managing one point from three rounds.

Unlike Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Napoli, they do have their South American players back and many of them are in the starting XI, namely Dybala, Juan Cuadrado, Danilo, Rodrigo Bentancur and Alex Sandro.

Chiesa, Federico Bernardeschi, Arthur and Kaio Jorge are on the treatment table, with Sweden international Dejan Kulusevski on the bench.

Malmo are under the orders of coach Jon Dahl Tomasson, former Milan striker, and eliminated Glasgow Rangers and Ludogorets in the Champions League preliminary rounds.

Niklas Moisander, Sergio Pena, Ola Toivonen and Oscar Lewicki are out of action, but Bonke Innocent starts despite carrying a knock.

It seems to be a very defensive 5-3-2 formation.

Malmo: Diawara; Berget, Ahmedodzic, L Nielsen, Brorsson, Rieks; Innocent, Christiansen, Rakip; Colak, Birmancevic

Malmo bench: Ellborg, Dahlin, Larsson, Olsson, Bejimo, Abubakari, Gwargis, Nalic, Eile, Bjorkqvist, Nanasi

Juventus: Szczesny; Danilo, De Ligt, Bonucci, Alex Sandro; Cuadrado, Bentancur, Locatelli, Rabiot; Dybala, Morata

Juventus bench: Pinsoglio, Perin, De Sciglio, Chiellini, Ramsey, McKennie, Kean, Rugani, Kulusevski
