Match Preview & Team News
Juventus have a nice chance to maintain their unbeaten streak in the 2019/20 campaign as they play host to Lokomotiv Moscow in the third round of the Champions League on Tuesday evening. The Old Lady share the top of the group with Atletico Madrid, while the Russians sit third on three points thanks to a 1-2 away win at Bayer Leverkusen on the opening Matchday.
Loko failed to back up the initial victory as they fell 0-2 at home to the Mattressers, a defeat which has seriously impacted their dreams of challenging one of the top two spots in the group. They will still travel to Turin on a high having won five consecutive Russian Premier League outings. Nevertheless, the head coach Yury Semin has plenty of problems with the list of injured players ahead of the trip to Italy.
The group phase is finished for influential midfielder Anton Miranchuk who suffered a foot injury in mid-September’s away win at Sochi. Jefferson Farfan and Boris Rotenberg are long-term absentees, while strikers Fedor Smolov and Luka Djordjevic are also ruled out through injuries.
Maurizio Sarri does not have important absences in his squad. Juventus are doing well in the Serie A where they sit at the top of the ladder with seven wins and a draw in the opening eight games. Cristiano Ronaldo has found the back of the net in each of his team’s five home fixtures in all competitions. He has scored at least a goal against 33 different clubs in the Champions League, but Lokomotiv Moscow are not on this list. Will the in-form Portuguese superstar add the Russians there?
