Six players from Juve's starting XI in 2015 have moved on | juventus.com

It was just two years ago when FC Barcelona and Juventus met in the Champions League final, but with the teams set to do battle again at the quarter-final stage, many of those who wore black and white in Berlin have moved on.

Since that match on 6 June, the managers on either bench have remained the same in Massimiliano Allegri and Luis Enrique but at least six of Juve’s starting eleven on Tuesday in Turin will be different to the final that Barça won 3-1.

There will be a vastly different midfield with Andrea Pirlo, Paul Pogba and Arturo Vidal all leaving the club. The Italian legend signed for New York City FC, Pogba became the world’s most expensive player by rejoining Manchester United and Vidal now plies his trade with Bayern Munich.

Carlos Tévez and Álvaro Morata started up front in the 2015 final. The former moved back to his native Argentina to play for Boca Juniors before leaving for China in January, while Morata moved re-signed for Real Madrid. Patrice Evra meanwhile has returned to France to play for Marseille.

Yet, while many big names have departed, the Italian giants have signed a host of other top players. The likes of Pjanic, Khedira, Cuadrado, Dybala, Mandzukic, Higuain and, of course, former Barça favourite Dani Alves, have joined Juve since the Berlin final.
