The Champions League returns for the third match day as Italian side Juventus travels to Copenhagen to face a FC Nordsjaelland team still looking for their first win of the competition.

Juventus manager Antonio Conte will be glad to have captain Gianluigi Buffon and forward Mirko Vucinic available for Tuesday night's crucial Champions League Group E tie with FC Nordsjaelland.

Buffon did not play for Juventus on Saturday during his teams Series A win over rivals Napoli due to a thigh injury that the goal keeper sustained while he was on international duty with Italy.

Buffon is expected to start in goal in place of Marco Storari in what is being called a must for the Italians. Juventus has played well in the first two matches against Chelsea and Shakhtar Donetsk, but were only able to draw the two clubs and currently sit in third place in the group.

To make their task a bit more ominous, regular winger Kwadwo Asamoah is unavailable due to an ankle injury and Stephan Lichtsteiner did not make the trip to Copenhagen. Both of those players' impact on the game will be missed.

For Nordsjaelland, they will be hoping to come away with some points after losing their first two matches of the Champions League. If the Danish team looks to advance to the next round, full points from this match must be their goal.

The Danish team will have to start producing offensively, given that they have lost their first two games without scoring a single goal.

Manager Kasper Hjulmand will have the comfort of having a full squad to choose from, but there is still doubt over Ivan Runje and Mikkel Beckmann after Monday's training session.

This will be the first time that FC Nordsjaelland will face an Italian team in a European competition.

Kick-off for the match is at 2:45 EDT and can be watched online here.
