It is quite impressive that Takis Lemonis have no casualty to deal with ahead of this game. He will be entering with his full squad for their last match in the group stage and apparently the last match in UEFA.
They are currently on the bottom in their group with 1 point only. Win or lose, they will be walking out of the league anyways. However, a victory is necessary for bringing back their confidence and boosting up theirs spirts a bit, after facing so many loses and bad luck.
Unlike their upcoming opponents, Juventus has a number of injuries to deal with. RB Stepan Lichtsteeiner, CB Benedikt Howedes and forward Mario will probably remain out of the field for several upcoming games including this one.
They are currently in the second position with 8 points. If they lose this game and Sporting CP beats Barcelona with the big margin, then only they will be eliminated from the league. However, it is very less likely to happen. Still, Juventus would not want to risk anything at such sensitive point at the end of the group stage.
