Barcelona face the biggest test of their Champions League group phase as they go to Turin to face Serie A champions Juventus, yet Ronald Koeman has decided to rest starlet Ansu Fati.
The Dutchman is already without Gerard Pique and Philippe Coutinho due to suspension as well as injury specifically, suggesting that Ronald Araujo enters the defence while Miralem Pjanic has actually been given the nod to encounter his previous side.
Seventeen-year-old midfielder Pedro has been handed one more beginning, as well as Ousmane Dembele and Antoine Griezmann join Leo Messi up front.
Juventus’ biggest team news is obviously the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo whose latest PCR test came back positive.
Juventus’ beginning XI:
Wojciech Szczesny, Danilo, Juan Cuadrado, Merih Demiral, Leonardo Bonucci, Dejan Kulusevski, Rodrigo Bentancur, Adrien Rabiot, Federico Chiesa, Alvaro Morata, Paulo Dybala.
Barcelona’s starting XI:
Neto, Sergi Roberto, Ronald Araujo, Clement Lenglet, Jordi Alba, Frenkie de Jong, Miralem Pjanic, Ousmane Dembele, Pedri, Antoine Griezmann, Leo Messi.
