Serie A giants Juventus led by manager Andrea Pirlo could field a much-improved line-up on their upcoming UEFA Champions League game against Dynamo Kyiv with a number of first-team players returning to action.
Cristiano Ronaldo, in particular, is set to return to the Juventus starting XI after for the Champions League clash against Dynamo Kyiv after the superstar was rested in Juve’s disappointing 1-1 draw against Benevento in Serie A on weekend, Gazzetta dello Sport reports, via Football Italia.
Juventus apparently missed their top scorer in Serie A this season as they failed to take the opportunity of jumping to the second position in the Serie A standings following a 1-1 stalemate.
The 35-year-old forward will now have a chance to extend his goal tally to two for the season in the Champions League and ten overall as he is reportedly expected to be among the Juventus starting XI on Wednesday night.
According to the report, Giorgio Chiellini is also in contention for the game against Dynamo Kyiv and could be included in the matchday squad. The centre-back is supposedly close to completing his recovery after suffering a muscle injury earlier this month.
Again, the report adds that Leonardo Bonucci, after being rested last match following his return from injury, could be included in the Juventus starting XI to face Dynamo Kyiv in the Champions League matchday 5.
