Juventus published their squad list for Tuesday’s match against Real Madrid in the opening leg of the Champions League Quarterfinals.

1 Buffon 2 De Sciglio 3 Chiellini 6 Khedira 7 Cuadrado 8 Marchisio 9 Higuaín 10 Dybala 11 Douglas Costa 12 Alex Sandro 14 Matuidi 15 Barzgli 16 Pinsoglio 17 Mandzukic 22 Asamoah 23 Szczesny 24 Rugani 26 Lichtsteiner 27 Sturaro 30 Bentancur

Bernardeschi, Pjanic and Benatia will miss the game, while Chiellini, Alex Sandro, Khedira and Mandzukic appear to have recovered in time for the game even though they were questionable.

Pjanic and Benatia are key players for Juventus and coach Massimiliano Allegri is expected to deploy Matuidi and Barzagli to replace them. Defender Giorgio Chiellini would miss the return leg if he gets booked this Tuesday, meaning that he will have to be extremely careful against Real Madrid’s attackers.

Juventus have a quality starting XI but their bench isn’t as deep as Real Madrid’s, so Los Blancos could try to take advantage from that.
