Lokomotiv Moscow vs. Juventus: Where to Watch UEFA Champions League, TV Channel, Live Stream, Team News and Odds

Juventus could qualify for the knockout stage of the Champions League with two games to spare if it beats Lokomotiv Moscow on Wednesday.

When the two sides met in Italy two weeks ago, the reigning Serie A champions needed two late goals from Paulo Dybala to prevail 2-1 and remain top of Group D alongside Atletico Madrid.

A win in Moscow would secure a place in the round of 16 and extend Juventus' unbeaten run to 14 games in all competitions this season. Winning in the Russian capital, however, won't be a straightforward task.

Lokomotiv has already won away against Leverkusen this season and more than held its own in Turin two weeks ago, while Juventus is without a win in its last four away games in Europe.

The Bianconeri lost 2-1 in Switzerland against Young Boys on Matchday 6 last season, before losing away to Atletico Madrid in the round of 16 and drawing against Ajax.

Juventus came close to snapping that winless run in its opening game this season, but squandered a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 away against Atletico in its only road trip in the Champions League so far.

History, however, has more positive moments for the Serie A giants, who are unbeaten against Russian clubs and have wo both of their trips to Russia without even conceding a goal.

Keeping clean sheets is something Juventus is making a habit of this season and its 1-0 win over city rivals Torino on Saturday was the fourth time in 11 league games it did not concede.

Juventus' defensive solidity is somewhat surprising given it ditched Massimiliano Allegri's defensive approach in the summer in favor of Maurizio Sarri's more attacking brand of soccer in the summer.

Ironically, Sarri's arrival is yet to spark the scoring spree that characterized his spell at Napoli. Juventus has scored 19 goals in Serie A so far, the second-fewest of any team in the top seven and its last three wins have come by a one-goal margin.

The former Chelsea manager, however, insisted his side's modest goal return was not cause for concern and praised his team's resilience after the narrow win over its local rivals.

"This was a difficult game, we needed a very high level of determination because we knew they would play with aggression," Sarri told a press conference, as per Italian daily Gazzetta dello Sport.

"It was a dirty and intense match, so not very suited to our characteristics. It was difficult to be beautiful because of Toro's playing style and also because of the condition of the field. But I'm happy with what I saw."
