    Juventus Football Club Società per azioni, colloquially known as Juve, and nicknamed La Vecchia Signora (The Old Lady), is a professional Italian football club in Turin, Piedmont. Juventus were founded as Sport-Club Juventus in late 1897 by pupils from the Massimo D'Azeglio Lyceum school in Turin, but were renamed as Foot-Ball Club Juventus two years later. The club joined the Italian Football Championship during 1900. In 1904, the businessman Ajmone-Marsan revived the finances of the football club Juventus, making it also possible to transfer the training field from piazza d'armi to the more appropriate Velodrome Umberto I. FIAT owner Edoardo Agnelli (whose grandson Andrea is currently Chairman of Juventus F.C.) gained control of the club in 1923 and built a new stadium. This helped the club to its second scudetto (league championship) in the 1925–26 season, and the club established itself as a major force in Italian football since the 1930s, becoming the country's first professional club and the first with a decentralised fan base.

    One of the most successful clubs in club football, Juventus have won 34 official league titles, 13 Coppa Italia titles and seven national Super Cups titles, being the record holder for all these competitions; two Intercontinental Cups, two European Cups / UEFA Champions Leagues, one European Cup Winners' Cup, a national record of three UEFA Cups, two UEFA Super Cups and one UEFA Intertoto Cup. Consequently, the side leads the historical Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio (FIGC) ranking whilst on the international stage occupies the 4th position in Europe and the eight in the world for most confederation titles won with eleven trophies, having led the UEFA ranking during seven seasons since its inception in 1979, the most for an Italian team and joint second overall — with Carlo Carcano, Giovanni Trapattoni, Marcello Lippi, Antonio Conte and current manager Massimiliano Allegri being the most successful — and the likes of Michel Platini, Omar Sívori, John Charles, Gaetano Scirea, Zinedine Zidane, Gianluigi Buffon, Alessandro Del Piero, Pavel Nedvěd and Dino Zoff donning the illustrious Black and Whites jersey.

    Juventus have significant rivalries with two clubs, Turin club Torino (with matches between them termed the Derby della Mole) and Internazionale (with matches between them termed the Derby d'Italia) — with another rivalry vs. Milan being predicated on their status as the two most titled teams in Italy. The club plays its home games at the Juventus Stadium (commercially known as the Allianz Stadium of Turin).

    Matic is never going to be dropped so probably go for:

    De Gea

    Young Smalling Lindelof Shaw
    Matic
    Herrera Pogba
    Mata/Rashford Sanchez Martial​

    Time to watch us being tactically outclassed and pissed on again by another decent team in the CL.

    Obviously need a win here but a draw wouldn't be the end of the world. Young Boys and Valencia games are still must win games.

    Nothing to suggest from the Bournemouth game that we’ll improve on our loss against them in the last fixture. Infact, we could get a proper dicking

    De Gea

    Young, Smalling, Lindelof, Shaw

    Herrera, Matic, Pogba

    Rashford, Sanchez, Martial


    I'd prefer Perreira over Matic, but hard to put him in against Juve when he has barely played

    Is my hope. Mata is good in big games so could see him coming in. Herrera needs to start. Fred I would start over Matic as Matic is trash but that midfield could also look very good.

    We're going to set up for 0-0 and sit deep, but that's just not the way to play with this team.

    To add, we'll probably lose but Juventus are far better than most teams so I don't think we should read too much into it.

    Pretty sure about the back 4, midfield 3 and Martial, I'm not 100% sure whether it'll be Rashford and Sanchez or if Mata might be in place of one of them.

    2-0 Juve.

    Take the loss and move on. Not having much hope for this. Get another 4 points from Valencia and Young Boys and will be enough to pass the group.

    Man I can't even imagine advancing to the knockouts with 2 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses. Though if Juve beat everyone then it'll probably happen.

    Juve are the best team in the world for me. If we only played the second half I'd fancy us to win, but we are so poor when starting games.

    Hate to say it, but I dont think we have a hope of even getting a draw.
    I really hope I am badly wrong.

    Revenge match -- snatch a win!
    Away game, would be more harder.

    But we've changed out attacking set-up since then, good chance!
    Only if Mou choose that new different setting.

    The 0-3 game back in 2003 I think. Giggs was insane that day.

    I think Lingard will come in for this, taking Mata’s place out wide.

    Herrera for Fred, probably.

    Yup. We had Roy Keane at centre back who was brilliant himself that day. Possibly his last great European performance alongside Rio Ferdinand. Giggsy stole the show though and it ignited his season .

    I feel we've always done better away at Juventus than at home. Maybe it's just the last two visits that make it feel like this. I go into this one with no expectations of a win like most others but with Martial in great form who knows.

    If we are to get anything from Juventus, play Herrera. He adds steel to the midfield.

    Lingard hasn't started a game in over a month. Risky throwing him in here.

    Matic no longer can play as a holding midfielder. He is just too slow. Its a waste to play Herrera there. His best position is as an AM.

    But he can break up play and make that killer pass.

    So I would play Herrera in front of the Defence and Matic and Pogba behind the strikers.

    If we take the game to them, we will beat them.

    I think this time that first 30 minutes juve had against us will be non existent. They’ve looked disjointed in the past few games and we have significantly improved our flow. We will give them a tough game but Ronaldo will inch it for them.

    Pretty much going into this game not expecting much other than a Juventus win. Just hoping we make a good game of it and would love to be proved wrong in my opening sentence and we got a good positive result but just can’t see it.

    Finally Mourinho has stated Herrera made the difference v Bournemouth.

    The only other person who can play that position currently is Fellani.

    But Herrera makes the better pass.

    But he is looking good and getting to that sharpness level he had pre world cup.

    I'm all for him to start, but it will be very unlikely.
