Serie A champions - Juventus make a long trip to Ukraine, as they meet Dynamo Kiev in their opening Group G Champions League match on Tuesday.

Host coach Lucescu can choose a flexible 4-3-3 scheme to face their illustrious guests, with Vladyslav Supriaha leading, Tsyhankov or Gerson Rodrigues and De Pena. Serhiy Sydorchuk and Mykola Shaparenko will start in midfield, while left-back Vitaliy Mykolenko and Ilya Zabarnyi will start in the four-man quarterback against Bushchan. Andrea Pirlo's Champions League debut saw him play against veteran coach Mircea Lucescu, who kicked off his stellar career, 25 years ago. Pirlo made his Serie A debut at the age of 16 for Lucescu's Brescia in 1995. The Romanian coach has worked extensively in Italy, with stints at Pisa, Reggiana and Inter Milan, Lucescu is also gearing up for a role. New game full of surprises. Former Shakhtar Donetsk 75-year-old coach - who won eight league titles, six cups and the 2008-09 UEFA Cup in 12 years there - returned to Ukraine this summer to take charge of Dynamo's most annoying rival. This will be their first appearance in four years, with runners-up behind Shakhtar in season four in 2019-20. Their progress was halted with a home win over AZ Alkmaar in the first leg of the third preliminary round, followed by a win over Gent in the knockout round. On the substitution field, Dynamo's Viktor Tsyhankov netted the decisive goal for Ukraine in a shocking 0-1 defeat to Spain in the Nations League last week - and their only goal in a friendly defeat to France 7- first. Goalkeeper Georgiy Bushchan was also very impressed when repelling a series of Spanish shots.

Without Cristiano Ronaldo and Weston McKennie (both quarantined), Pirlo could once again rely on Chiesa and Morata on attack, with Kulusevski assisting. Speculations persist about Paulo Dybala's future, as the coveted Argentine striker was left on the bench against Crotone, despite recovering from gastroenteritis last week. Arthur and Rodrigo Bentancur should kick midfield, with Juan Cuadrado - eliminated at the weekend - on the wing. This will be Juve's 21st Champions League campaign; They have reached the round of 16 in all but those three seasons and will expect to do it again this time. Recent signing Federico Chiesa made an immediate impact on his debut, following a Dejan Kulusevski pass to kick off a Alvaro Morata touch.
