Right Back: Stephan Lichtsteiner (Lazio)

Stephan Lichtsteiner experience has come in handy for Juventus.

The Swiss international joined Juventus from Lazio in the summer of 2011. Since his arrival, he has won 7 Serie A, 4 Coppa Italia. He has been one of the most consistent players for Juventus whenever called upon, but he will leave the Turin giants in the summer.nd 4 Super Copa

During his time with Lazio, he was one of the most attacking full-backs in the Serie A and he scored his first goal for Lazio against cross-town rivals Lazio in a 3-1 win. He won the Copa Italia with the Biancocelesti as well as the Super Copa Italia scoring in the shootout against Sampdoria.

He has been mainly used as a squad player this season due to the signing of Mattia De Sciglio. But his experience has come in handy to Juventus in Champions League as he came off the bench against Tottenham to help set up Higuain's first and Mario Mandžukić second against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.

He recently played his last game for Juventus against Verona and he was given a penalty in his final game which he missed, though the Juventus fans are still happy for him and his year's of service to the club definitely makes up for it.

Left Back: Mattia De Sciglio (AC Milan)

De Sciglio is yet to reach his peak at the age of 25.

The Italian international bust on the scene at the San Siro when Massimiliano Allegri was in charge of AC Milan. The full-back though mainly plays on the right, but he very much capable of playing as a left back as well.


With Milan, he won one Serie A title and two Italian Super Cups. He left AC Milan in the summer of 2017 to join Juventus in a £12 million deal. In his first season with the club, he won his second Serie A title and first with Juve and the Copa Italia.

He made 133 appearances for the Rossoneri and was seen as the future for the Milan giants. But he refused a contract extension with the club and he only had a year left on his contract, so the Milan giants decided to sell him.

At the age of 25, De Sciglio is yet to reach his peak and under Massimiliano Allegri, he is likely to improve and the Juventus have a proper Italian defender who is likely to hold that right back position for Juve for a long time to come.
