Conte to try 4-3-3 again

Antonio Conte will reportedly try changing Juventus back to a 4-3-3 when they host Real Madrid on Tuesday night.

Still looking for a first win in this season’s Champions League group phase, reports are that the Italians will revert once more to back-four tactic when hosting Madrid this midweek.

Juve have generally played a 3-5-2 in Serie A this term, but when out at the Santiago Bernabeu two weeks ago, went with a 4-3-3 system.

Reports in Italy and Spain believe that the Bianconeri will try that latter tactic once more this week, with Fernando Llorente seen as again in contention to make the starting line-up.

It is believed that Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba will once more line up in midfield with Andrea Pirlo, whilst Claudio Marchisio could support Llorente and Carlos Tevez in attack.

Probable Juventus XI to play Real Madrid: Buffon; Caceres, Barzagli, Bonucci, Ogbonna; Vidal, Pirlo, Pogba; Tevez, Llorente, Marchisio

Meanwhile, Real Madrid are speculated as handing Xabi Alonso a second consecutive start for the match.
