Bale recovered from a thigh injury to come on as a substitute in La Liga over the weekend to put himself in contention for a start.

However, as expected, the Wales international stays on the bench and Angel Di Maria keeps his place in the starting lineup.

Karim Benzema starts in the attack, alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, with Di Maria, Luka Modric and Asier Illarramendi in support.

Iker Casillas starts in goal with Diego López dropping to the bench, while Isco and Fábio Coentrão are also on the bench.

Carlos Tevez lead the attack for Juventus, with Fernando Llorente partnering him upfront.
