Buffon Returns For Juventus As Lichtsteiner & Asamoah Are Rested

The goalkeeper picked up a muscular problem while away on international duty with Italy and consequently missed this weekend's 2-0 Serie A win over Napoli.

However, the 34-year-old has now been given the green light again by the club's medical staff and is likely to start against the Danish champions.

Meanwhile, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Kwadwo Asamoah have both been left out of the team for Tuesday's Group E match.

The Ghanaian midfielder has been omitted as a precaution after taking a knock to his ankle during Saturday’s meeting with the Partenopei, whereas the Swiss full-back will be put through a specific regime to improve his condition.

Juventus have collected two points from as many games, while Nordsjaelland lost their opening two matches.
