Juventus face Sevilla at Juventus Stadium on Wednesday. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
If familiarity breeds contempt, Juventus and Sevilla absolutely must be at wit’s end with one another. Having faced Sevilla in the group stages of last year’s Champions League, Juventus returns with a markedly different lineup. Most notably, Paul Pogba and Alvaro Morata are gone, and Dani Alves, Miralem Pjanic, and Gonzalo Higuain have arrived. Higuain already looks comfortable with his new team, having scored three goals in Serie A this season. And 38-year-old Gianluigi Buffon continues to be a stalwart between the posts for Juve.
As far as dynasties in Europe go, it is tough to find one more domineering than Sevilla in the Europa League. Winners of the Europa League each of the last three years, Sevilla hopes for more success in the Champions League. New manager Jorge Sampaoli has led his team to an unbeaten record thus far. He has both Luciano Vietto and Wissam Ben Yedder at his disposal for scoring power but will have to play this one without defender Timothee Kolodziejczak.
