Juve have started winning games in Serie A and took all three points in their Champions League opener against Malmo.

“I have confused ideas," Allegri said smiling when asked about the potential Juventus line-up.

“We had a good training session, apart from Ramsey everybody is available, tomorrow we have to do what Chiellini said.

“We need to play a very technical match, they are very solid, they've worked very hard, they are good in counter-attacks and set-pieces.

“We might concede goals, it could happen, we'll have to start from the very beginning with a very good approach and play well on the pitch."

Asked about a three-man defence, Allegri continued: “That's the first doubt that I still have, it's not a matter of defence with three players, it depends on how the ball goes.

“We have players with different qualities, we also have Kean, we'll try to put two or three at the front, tomorrow morning I will decide the line-up.

“We must be balanced in our pressing and be able to play well, if, after five passes you give the ball to the opponent, you won't be able to press the ball for 90 minutes."
