Higuain and Ramsey out of Coppa semi

Gonzalo Higuain, Giorgio Chiellini and Aaron Ramsey are out of the Juventus squad for this evening’s Coppa Italia semi-final with Milan.

It kicks off in Turin at 20.00 UK time (19.00 GMT) after the 1-1 first leg result at San Siro on February 13.

If they are all-square on aggregate at the end of play, the teams will skip extra time and go straight to penalties.

Higuain, Chiellini, Ramsey and defender Merih Demiral are out of Maurizio Sarri’s squad, as they are not 100 per cent fit for the first game back after the three-month lockdown.

Gigi Buffon is expected to start in goal, with Rodrigo Bentancur and Miralem Pjanic battling for a midfield spot.

Douglas Costa, Paulo Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo are tipped to form the trident attack.

Juventus squad for Milan: Szczesny, Pinsoglio, Buffon; De Sciglio, De Ligt, Alex Sandro, Danilo, Bonucci, Rugani; Pjanic, Khedira, Matuidi, Rabiot, Bentancur, Muratore; Ronaldo, Dybala, Douglas Costa, Cuadrado, Bernardeschi, Olivieri, Vrioni, Zanimacchia
