Massimiliano Allegri has picked his 23-man squad for Juventus’ Champions League round of 16 tie against Atletico Madrid.

The first meeting with the Rojiblancos takes place on Wednesday, February 20 at the Wanda Metropolitano, before the return game in Turin takes place in March.

Juan Cuadrado is the biggest name to miss out through injury after he sustained cartilage damage in the group stage game against Young Boys in December and has since undergone an operation.

His place is taken in the squad by wing-back Leonardo Spinazzola, who was left out during the group stages.

New signing Martin Caceres is also included, while Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini also feature, despite concerns over their fitness.

The full squad is as follows: Szczesny, De Sciglio, Chiellini, Caceres, Pjanic, Khedira, Ronaldo, Dybala, Douglas Costa, Alex Sandro, Matuidi, Barzagli, Mandzukic, Kean (B list), Bonucci, Joao Cancelo, Pinsoglio, Perin, Emre Can, Rugani, Bentancur, Bernardeschi, Spinazzola.
