The 34 year old is not set to return until the New Year after suffering knee ligament damage in the recent 1- 0 win over Udinese however Juve manager Antonio Conte believes his side can cope without the Italian international.

“Unfortunately, Pirlo’s missing. But we did well without him against Udinese and Bologna. We’ll need to do even better tomorrow (Tuesday),” said Conte.

“Speculating about the result is not in our mentality; we’ll look to win as we always do.

“We won’t be affected by the fact that two out of three results will see us through. We’ll play our usual game.”

Juventus will head into the game on the back of seven straight wins in the league, the most recent of them being a 2-0 win over Bologna.

Galatasaray manager Robert Mancini has received a welcome boost ahead of the game with star man Wesley Sneijder expected to be fit for the clash with the Serie A giants.

The Dutch midfielder has been struggling with a thigh injury in recent weeks playing just one game in the last 6 weeks.

However the former Inter Milan star is set to feature in the must-win clash, where a win would see the Turkish club pip their visitors to the runners up spot.

“We will finally look at Wesley Sneijder’s situation tomorrow (Tuesday) morning,” Mancini said.

“He feels good and it seems that there will be no obstacle to play.”

The former Manchester City manager believes that his side, currently fourth in the Turkish standings, have the ability to beat the current Serie A leaders and defending champions.

“Our primary goal is not conceding. If we do not allow our rivals to find chances, I think we will win this game,” he added.

“Our target is definitely qualifying for the next round. We are not thinking of another possibility, such as finishing the group in third place.”

The club are also set to welcome back goalkeeper Fernando Muslera for the game.
