The Serie A side could field a much-improved line-up on their upcoming European night with a number of key players returning.

Cristiano Ronaldo is set to reclaim his position in the Juventus starting XI in the second leg of the Champions League clash against Dynamo Kyiv, according to Gazzetta dello Sport via Football Italia.

The 35-year-old remained in Turin as he was not included in the trip to Benevento last weekend. It did not end well as Juve missed the chance to jump to the second position in the Serie A table after a 1-1 stalemate.

Ronaldo will now have a chance to extend his goal tally to two for the season in the Champions League and eight overall as he is reportedly expected to start on Wednesday night.

The report adds that Giorgio Chiellini could also be included in the squad against Dynamo Kyiv. The center-back is supposedly close to completing his recovery after suffering a muscle injury earlier this month.

Furthermore, Leonardo Bonucci, after being rested last match following his return from injury, is also in contention to start in Champions League matchday 5.
