Juventus To Miss Key Players In Champions League Clash Against Manchester United

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.
