Shakhtar could name an unchanged XI from the side that picked up a comfortable 2-0 win over FC Nordsjælland.
Stepanenko will hope to replace Hubschmann in the holding midfield pairing, while Eduardo and Devic will wait for chances from the bench with Adriano likely to get the nod up front.
Shakhtar have had a perfect start to the season with 10 wins from 10 capped by a victory over their title rivals Dnipro this weekend. Their star man has been Henrikh Mkhitaryan who scored both goals against the Danes earlier in the competition and has 13 goals in 10 league games thus far.
Juventus won't be underestimating a Shakhtar side coming into this game in fine form, who offer plenty of flair through their front four, and Marchisio and Vidal will need to get through a lot of work.
Luckily for the hosts there aren't many players better in Europe at doing just that than the Juve midfield right now and The Old Lady will no doubt be favourites to make their possession count.
The visitors know that this game is a huge step up from the match with FC Nordsjælland in their opener so will be more content to wait for their chances on the counter.
