Buffon returns for Juventus as Lichtsteiner and Asamoah are rested

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 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 has collected two points from as many games in its Champions League group, while Nordsjaelland lost its opening two matches.
