What is the team news?
Now that Juve have qualified for the last-16, manager Pirlo is expected to change his side a little.
He could rest both Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala up front, with midfielders Adrien Rabiot and Arthur starting from the bench.
Should Gianluigi Buffon get a rare start, he would equal Paul Scholes’ 124 appearances in the competition.
Merih Demiral and Giorgio Chiellini are both still out with muscle injuries.
Kiev, meanwhile, have Oleksandr Tymchyk out with a muscle problem while Mykyta Burda is sidelined with an Achilles injury.
Juventus – 2/7
Draw – 17/4
