UEFA Champions League

Teams: Juventus vs Valencia

Date: 27 November 2018

Venue: Allianz Stadium

Time: 22:00

Juventus continued their unbeaten Serie A start with victory over SPAL on the weekend, with Ronaldo becoming the fastest player in the club's history to score 10 goals in that fixture.

He was also on the scoresheet during the Bianconeri's previous Champions League match, but Juve fell short of qualifying courtesy of two late goals by Manchester United in that fixture.

However, a draw in their match against Valencia tonight would be enough to see the Serie A leaders book their ticket to the round of 16.

Valencia, meanwhile, need a win at the Allianz Stadium to keep their fate in their own hands, otherwise a win for United over Young Boys in the other group fixture will see the Red Devils advance.

The defeat to Jose Mourinho's side was only Juventus' third European loss in 35 matches at the Allianz Stadium, while they won 20 matches and drew the other 12 fixtures.

Juve and Valencia have met only once before in this competition, in the reverse fixture earlier this season, when two penalty goals by Miralem Pjanic secured the Italians an away win despite Ronaldo being sent off.

Here is how both teams line up:

Juventus: Szczesny; Cancelo, Bonucci, Chiellini, Álex Sandro; Pjanic, Bentancur, Matuidi; Dybala, Ronaldo, Mandzukic.

Valencia: Neto, Wass, G.Paulista, Diakhaby, Gayà, Coquelin Kondogbia, Parejo, Guedes, Rodrigo Mina.
