Buffon returns for Juventus as Lichtsteiner & Asamoah are rested

The experienced shot-stopper has shaken off his thigh injury while some of his team-mates will stay behind in Turin to recover from minor fitness issues
Gianluigi Buffon has been included in Juventus' 22-man squad for Tuesday's Champions League match away against Nordsjaelland.

The goalkeeper picked up a muscular problem while away on international duty with Italy and consequently missed Saturday'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.

7/1 Juventus are 7/1 with Bet365 to beat Nordsjaelland 3-0 in the Champions League
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 in the Champions League so far, while Nordsjaelland lost their opening two matches.
