Many Juventus fans on Twitter are furious about the reported team news for their upcoming Champions League match versus Atletico Madrid.
The Twitter fan account, @ForzaJuve2017, announced (referencing SportMediaset) that Federico Bernardeschi and Rodrigo Bentancur will be replacing Douglas Costa and Miralem Pjanic, while the rest of the side would stay the same following the 0-0 draw with Fiorentina.
The news has irked the Juventus fans who really do not want to see these changes, if the memes and tweets are anything to go by.
Douglas Costa limped off the pitch against Fiorentina in Juve’s Serie A clash in Florence with a ‘medium-grade’ muscle injury to the thigh, which could put him out for a number of weeks; Pjanic is also set to miss out (Juventus club website, via Black White Read All Over).
With Juve dropping off top spot in the league for the first time for a remarkable 550 days (per Nicky Bandini, the Guardian), fans are clearly irritated.
Here are some of their responses below…

The way things are going, I'm afraid the result will be WORSE than against Fiorentina.
And again, season starts and we immediately have key players out with injuries. Have we not done our homework from last season?
