The move comes as a surprise after Allegri said yesterday that Chiesa was still not ready to play a competitive game.
The Italian manager revealed that Chiesa took four days to recover after a friendly he played last Thursday.
He injured his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) against AS Roma on January 9. The knee injury has kept Chiesa out of action since then.
However, after training with the under-17s and returning to partial first-team training a few weeks ago, he could play his first minutes in ten months.
Chiesa will most likely be an unused substitute and remain on the bench for the game.
Fans of the Bianconeri have missed the electric winger. He was an integral piece for Allegri before his injury, and his club has missed his bright spark.
Juventus have several absentees for the game, including Paul Pogba, Dusan Vlahovic, Angel di Maria, Leandro Paredes, Bremer, Moise Kean, Mattia de Sciglio, Weston McKennie, Samuel Iling-Junior and Danilo.
Kean is surprisingly not in the squad despite the club not mentioning an injury to the Italy international. However, he is reportedly out with a thigh injury and there is no timeframe for his return.
Allegri has taken youngsters Enzo Barrenechea and Tommaso Barbieri from the NextGen squad.
Juventus’ group is almost decided, with PSG and Benfica securing qualification to the round of 16.
However, Juventus and Maccabi Haifa, both on three points, will battle for the Europa League place. Benfica and PSG are on 11 points and have to fight for who will take top spot in the group.
