UEFA Champions League

Teams: Juventus vs Barcelona

Venue: Allianz Stadium, Turin

Time: 9.45pm

In their first meeting in Group D earlier this season, Massimiliano Allegri's side were beaten 3-0 at the Camp Nou, with Messi scoring twice.

Since then, Juve have won twice and drawn once in Europe, but go into this clash on the back of a shock 3-2 defeat to Sampdoria in Serie A.

The Catalan club currently lead the pack with 10 points after four matches, while their opposition on Wednesday night are just three points behind them.

Barca will be wary head of the clash, however, as they are without a win in their past five trips to Italy.

This match is, of course, a repeat of the 2014/15 final in Germany, where the Spanish giants ran out 3-1 winners.

The Italians, however, got revenge on the Catalans with their 3-0 aggregate triumph in last year's quarter-final round.

A massive positive for Ernesto Valverde's men will be Barca's 17-match unbeaten streak, although this could very well be his side’s toughest test yet in this run.

Here is how the teams will line up:

Juventus: Buffon, Sandro, Barzagli, Rugani, Benatia, Cuadrado, Pjanić, Khedira, Costa, Higuaín, Dybala.

Barcelona: Ter Stegen, Semedo, Piqué, Umtiti, Digne, Rakitić, Busquets, Paulinho, Iniesta, Deulofeu, Suárez.
