Bianconerri midfield injury woes continue as Blaise Matuidi joined Sami Khedira and Emre Can on the injury sideline.
Khedira has been out with a muscular injury in recent weeks, while Can is also sidelined after surgery on a thyroid nodule which leaves Miralem Pjanic, Rodrigo Bentancur as the recognised central midfielders.
Douglas Costa underwent physiotherapy for a muscular problem in his left adductors. Meanwhile, key defender Giorgio Chiellini is also struggling and will continue a personalised programme together with winger Federico Bernardeschi.
Matuidi missed training yesterday with bruising he sustained during the 3-1 win over Cagliari however, the World Cup winner still has three days to recover for the Champions League tie, he’s a slight doubt to play in the home fixture.
Mario Mandzukic could return in matchday four in the Champions League as the Old Lady sit on top of Group H with 9 points and the visiting team has four, while Valencia with two and Young Boys have one.
