Cristiano is poised to start on the left-side of the Juve attack, while Mario Mandzukic is deployed through the middle.
There’s no room in the predicted XI for Argentine forward Paulo Dybala.
Moreover, there’s no room for Moise Kean in the team even though the youngster has been scoring for fun in recent weeks.
Instead, Federico Bernardeschi is tipped to complete the Juve attacking trio.
Elsewhere, there are few surprises with the Juve XI which should have Daniele Rugani and Leonardo Bonucci at centre-halves.
Ajax likely XI
Corriere dello Sport have also had a go at guessing at how Ajax will line-up in the Dutch capital.
Ajax are predicted to play a 4-2-1-3 formation which will include many of their bright young stars.
