Referee Irfan Peljto (Bosnia and Herzegovina)
Juventus will be without Danilo (thigh), Federico Chiesa (muscle) and Aaron Ramsey (unspecified), while Weston McKennie (knee) and Mattia De Sciglio (hamstring) are both unlikely to feature but will be assessed ahead of kickoff.
Allegri is unlikely to make too many changes, if any, to the starting lineup selected against Genoa last weekend; however, Leonardo Bonucci could return at centre-back ahead of either Giorgio Chiellini or Matthijs de Ligt.
Dybala, who has been directly involved in seven goals in his last seven Champions League appearances at the Juventus Stadium, is expected to start in behind Alvaro Morata, with Federico Bernardeschi and Dejan Kulusevski providing support from the flanks.
Juventus possible starting lineup:
Szczesny; Cuadrado, Bonucci, De Ligt, Sandro; Locatelli, Bentancur; Kulusevski, Dybala, Bernardeschi; Morata
As for Malmo, Jonas Knudsen and Ola Toivonen are both ruled out with knee problems, while Oscar Lewicki and Felix Beijmo are both doubtful and will be assessed ahead of kickoff.
Captain Anders Christiansen and Erdal Rakip will both be in contention to start in midfield after recovering from respective hamstring and knee injuries and coming off the bench at the weekend.
Striker Antonio Colak, who has scored 14 goals across all competitions this season, is set to lead the line, and could be joined in attack by Veljko Birmancevic.
Malmo possible starting lineup:
Dahlin; Nielsen, Ahmedhodzic, Brorsson; Berget, Christiansen, Innocent, Rakip, Olsson; Birmancevic, Colak
Prediction: Juventus 3-0 Malmo
