Juventus, Sevilla and Borussia reveal Champions League squads

The return of the UEFA Champions League is just ten days away and all 32 clubs have submitted their rosters to the competition’s governing body.

We brought you the City A List squad earlier this week but who has made the cut for our Group D opponents?

Juventus

It’s been well documented that Juventus have lost a few of the key contributors to the team which reached the final of the competition last season.

Andrea Pirlo, Aturo Vidal and Carlos Tevez have all left for pastures new in what was a tumultuous summer for Massimiliano Allegri’s outfit.

Sami Khedira, Mario Mandzukic, Paulo Dybala, Alex Sandro, Hernanes, Simone Zaza and Juan Cuadrado have all arrived to bolster an Old Lady side looking to retain the Scuedetto for the fifth-successive year.

It’s not been the best start to the campaign for Juventus, however, as they’ve lost their opening two Serie A encounters, enduring their worst beginning to a season since 1912.

Buffon, Neto, Chiellini, Caceres, Sandro, Barzagli, Bonucci, Rugani, Lichtsteiner, Evra, Khedira, Pogba, Hernanes, Lemina, Sturaro, Pereyra, Zaza, Morata, Cuadrado, Mandzukic, Dybala

Sevilla

Europa League champions Sevilla have had a similarly busy transfer window, bringing in a trio of players from the Premier League, among others.

Steven N’Zonzi joined from Stoke, Iago Aspas swapped Merseyside for Andalucia and Gael Kakuta left Stamford Bridge behind for the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium.

In addition, the squad has taken in Abdil Rami, Ciro Immobile and Fernando Llorente, ironically, from Juventus.

Sevilla are also yet to win a game in La Liga, drawing with Malaga and losing heavily at home to Atletico Madrid.

Borussia Monchengladbach

Borussia Monchengladbach’s most expensive deal of the window saw Josip Drmic join the club from Bayer Leverkusen.

The striker scored six goals in 25 Bundesliga matches last season and signed a deal which will keep him at Borussia Park until 2019.

Elsewhere, Thorgan Hazard joined from Chelsea but Borussia boss Lucien Favre lost the services of Max Kruse to Wolfsburg in what could be a significant transfer for both clubs.

Borussia are also without a domestic win from their first three games as they’ve lost to Dortmund, Mainz and Werder Bremen.

Full UEFA Champions League squad

Sommer, Sippel, Heimeroth, Kompalla, Christensen, Brouwers, Dominguez, Wendt, Schulz, Johnson, Jantschke, Korb, Elvedi, Strazl, Nordtveit, Hazard, Stindl, Schulz, Traore, Hahn, Xhaka, Hermann, Drmic, Raffael, Hrgota
