Champions League is back in Torino. Yes.

In less than an hour, Juventus will officially be playing a Champions League game at their home stadium again. It's been a long time, ladies and gentlemen. Now they're back.

In rolls a team in Shakhtar that a lot of people are thinking can make some noise in this group. While Juventus are clearly a pick to advance, this is one of those games, at home, that is critical to win. And with Chelsea playing the group's bottom feeders, getting points is even that much more important.

But I can assure you of one thing: Juventus Stadium will be as loud as it has ever been. Ever.

That's all I have to say.
