Mandzukic doubt for Bayern

Juventus could be without Mario Mandzukic against Bayern Munich, as he's out for four weeks.

The striker and Kwadwo Asamoah missed training yesterday after both complained of muscular discomfort following the Coppa Italia win over Inter.

“Kwadwo Asamoah and Mario Mandzukic both underwent medical checks today after reporting injuries during Wednesday’s Coppa Italia triumph over Inter at Juventus Stadium,” a statement on the Bianconeri’s website read.

“The Ghanaian midfielder has suffered a torn biceps femoris in his right thigh and is expected to be sidelined for two to three weeks.

“Tests on Mandzukic meanwhile revealed a torn gemellus muscle, with the Croatian forward’s rehabilitation process estimated to last four weeks.”

The first leg of the Champions League Last 16 tie with Bayern Munich is on February 23, meaning Mandzukic faces a battle to be fit in time.
