Juventus v Sporting

Juventus suffered a shock 2-1 defeat at home to Lazio in Serie A at the weekend and their manager Max Allegri will be demanding an immediate response from his players as a win in this match would give them an edge in the race for 2nd place.

Juventus have won 5 of their last 6 home games in the Champions League, including a 3-0 victory against Barcelona in April, with Argentina forward Paulo Dybala scoring twice in the opening 22 minutes.

Sporting Lisbon have won only 1 of their last 5 fixtures in all competitions, but they have been outstanding on the road this season, winning 6 of their 7 away matches and scoring an average of more than 3 goals per game.

Sporting Lisbon have lost 6 of their last 8 away games in the Champions League, but they did win their last 2, a 5-1 win against FCSB followed by a 3-2 win against Olympiakos.
