Juventus vs Manchester United : Cristiano Ronaldo will be eager for another chance to score against former side Manchester United when his Juventus team host the Red Devils in Turin on Wednesday evening.
The Portugal international failed to find the back of the net away at Old Trafford a fortnight ago, with Paulo Dybala being the hero as the Argentine’s goal handed the Italian giants a 1-0 victory to open up a five-point lead at the top of Group H.
Jose Mourinho’s side sit second in the group with four points – two ahead of Valencia – though another defeat could put their hopes of progressing to the knockout rounds in danger.

Mario Mandzukic missed the game at Old Trafford due to an ankle injury suffered in training, but he is available to feature. Sami Khedira could be involved having also missed the game in Manchester, while Federico Bernardeschi, Emre Can and Moise Kean join Costa in being ruled out.

Romelu Lukaku did not train with the team on Tuesday and has been ruled out of the game, while Marcus Rashford could push for a starting berth after scoring the winner at the weekend against Bournemouth.
Anthony Martial is in fine form having netted five goals in his last four appearances for the club, while Marouane Fellaini and Antonio Valencia are still missing from the squad with injury.
Diogo Dalot is also nearing a return to the first team, though an appearance in Turin is unlikely.
Potential Man United XI: De Gea; Young, Smalling, Lindelof, Shaw; Herrera, Matic, Pogba; Rashford, Sanchez, Martial.

A home win over United would send Juventus into the knockout phase as group winners, leaving Mourinho’s side to scrap with Valencia for the final qualifying berth.
Lukaku is still recovering from the injury which saw him miss the weekend win at Bournemouth and that leaves him doubtful for Sunday’s Manchester derby, so Martial and Rashford could both feature in Turin.
The meeting in Turin will be a reunion for many, with Ronaldo facing his former club and manager once again, and Paul Pogba returning to his old side.
Ronaldo will be looking to rectify his miserable scoring record against Mourinho, having only managed to score once in 14 matches against the former Real Madrid coach.
Despite being in fine form in Serie A with seven goals and six assists so far this season, Ronaldo has been unable to continue his prolific Champions League form from last season – and is yet to register in the competition.
