There's only 180 minutes give or take of Champions League football for Juventus left in 2014. What they do with those are completely up to them. Six points are out there for the taking, one chance at home after another away from the wonderfulness of Juventus Stadium.
Tonight, that three-point contest away from Turin
Juventus have been in Sweden for about 24 hours now. And after testing out what is expecting to be some so-so field conditions in the late-November cold, Max Allegri's squad now gets the chance to do what they traveled to the land of Zlatan to do — and that's to try and win a football game.
While Atlético Madrid and Olympiacos tango in Spain, Juventus and their newfound energy and positive form look to keep the ball rolling coming out of the international break. Allegri's side has been truly reborn in the recent weeks, with the quality of playing they displayed the first time they played Malmö officially a thing of the past.
The only thing we haven't seen from this Juventus side this season is if they can put back-to-back wins in the Champions League together. After beating Olympiacos in Turin before the international break, now they look to win on the road in Sweden a couple days after the same break in action.
So now we wait. With 90-plus minutes of fotball standing right in front of us. Head over to YouTube and fire up the Champions League song. It's time to do some signing as we await another Juventus game where we're certainly set to be nervous wrecks.
Starting lineups for both Juventus and Malmö will be posted RIGHT HERE when they become available. Will it be Arturo Vidal or Roberto Pereyra? Either way, King Arturo Vidal will be linked with Manchester United in the morning, so just you wait and see who's playing from the opening whistle.
