Piemonte Calcio is the name Juventus are referred to on FIFA 20.
EA confirmed the team in full will be revealed in January, with the Player Items relating to the XI available for a "limited time" soon after.
The 55-man shortlist is unsurprisingly dominated by Liverpool stars, with 10 of their squad making the cut. Jurgen Klopp's side won the UEFA Champions League in June and are sitting at the summit of the Premier League table.
Their star man in the previous term was defender Virgil van Dijk, who finished as the runner-up to Lionel Messi in the recent Ballon d'Or award.
Per ESPN FC, there was little between the two men in the race for the game's most coveted individual prize:
Manchester City, who won a domestic treble in the 2018-19 season, have seven players in the list, while Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus have five. Both Barcelona and Real Madrid have four.
Unsurprisingly, Messi makes the cut at the end of an extraordinary year. While Barcelona missed out on Champions League and Copa del Rey success, the Argentina forward was sensational on a consistent basis, helping Barcelona to La Liga success.
After a slow start to the current campaign due to injury, the forward has settled back into a trademark groove again in recent weeks.
Messi netted a remarkable hat-trick in the 5-2 win over Mallorca on Saturday, taking him on to 14 goals for the season already:
Most goals in #LaLigaHistory. Most assists in #LaLigaHistory. Most hat-tricks in #LaLigaHistory. Most wins in #LaLigaHistory. Most goals for @FCBarcelona. Most goals for Argentina. Most Ballon d'Ors in history. Most European Golden Shoes. The list goes on... 🌟💙 LEO MESSI ❤️🌟 https://t.co/MBosXkGeNe
Cristiano Ronaldo also unsurprisingly features in the shortlist, having won the Serie A title in his first term with Juventus.
With Messi also in the forwards category, the Portuguese will face stiff competition for a spot in the side. Per Squawka Football, Liverpool's Sadio Mane will be able to make a major case for a starting berth:
In the midfield positions, City duo Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva are worthy inclusions, while Frenkie de Jong is recognised, too. The Dutchman was sensational for Ajax last season before making his high-profile transfer to Barcelona in the summer.
Juventus' Matthijs de Ligt, who also flourished at Ajax before leaving in the previous transfer window, is among the defenders.
He will surely be fighting for the remaining centre-back spot in the side alongside Van Dijk at the back, with Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly another standout; Liverpool full-backs Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold will be tough to beat in the positions flanking the defence.
