Juventus vs. Shakhtar Donetsk: Lineups

Turin hasn't seen Champions League football in far too long, but now Juventus Stadium welcomes back Europe's premier competition. Having managed to snatch an away draw at the home of the defending champions, Juve are on a high, but to maintain that they'll need to beat Group E leaders Shakhtar Donetsk. With the dangerous Henrikh Mkhitaryan pulling the strings in midfield, Juve are going to have to be at their best to earn all three points here.

Fortunately for the Serie A leaders (and Scudetto holders), they've been at their best quite a lot recently, manager or no. Unless something major happens, they should be fine.

Juventus starting lineup (3-5-2): Gianluigi Buffon; Leonardo Bonucci, Andrea Barzagli, Georgio Chielleni; Kwadwo Asamoah, Arturo Vidal, Andrea Pirlo, Claudio Marchisio, Stephan Lichtsteiner; Mirko Vucunic, Alessandro Matri.

Shakhtar Donetsk starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Andriy Pyatov; Razvan Rat, Yaroslav Rakitskiy, Olexandr Kucher, Darijo Srna; Fernandinho, Tomás Hubschman; Alex Teixeira, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Willian; Luiz Adriano.
