Galatasaray braced for must-win Juventus clash

Text size Aa Aa

Turkish giants Galatasaray entertain Juventus on Tuesday with both sides knowing that victory will guarantee second spot in Group B and a place in the last 16 of the competition.

Roberto Mancini’s men, who will be bolstered by the return of former Lazio goalkeeper Fernando Muslera, are two points behind second-placed Juventus heading into the decider.

Juventus coach Antonio Conte will be without experienced midfielder Andrea Pirlo after he suffered knee ligament damage against Udinese a week ago.

Argentina forward Carlos Tevez and former Athletic Bilbao Fernando Llorente should feature in the starting lineup as both were rested for the win at Bologna on Friday.

The game kicks-off at 21.45 local time.
