Juventus have made a perfect start to the season and the Old Lady can make their experience count against Young Boys in Turin.

It’s seven wins on the spin for Juve, who ended a three-game sequence of three straight 2-0 successes by overcoming Napoli 3-1 on Saturday.

Cristiano Ronaldo landed a hat-trick of assists in that crucial triumph over Napoli, but even without their record signing out because of suspension it is unlikely to be a nervy night for the Italians.

They are particularly strong at the back and managed three clean sheets in last season’s group stage at home as well as recording a 2-0 victory at Valencia on matchday one when Ronaldo was red-carded.

Young Boys have become the dominant force in Swiss football but the gulf in quality was highlighted by a 3-0 home loss to Manchester United a fortnight ago.
