Mario Mandzukic is a doubt for Juventus’ trip to Bayern Munich, according to reports.
The Croatian international appeared to be limping when he went off during Friday’s 1-0 win over Sassuolo, raising fears he could miss the Champions League Last 16 second leg.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, while the injury is not serious it’s enough to cause concern for Coach Massimiliano Allegri, who will assess the forward in the training session at Vinovo tomorrow.
Alvaro Morata is on standby to start at the Allianz Arena, but Allegri is keen to have Mandzukic available, as his physicality and work rate is seen as crucial.
Meanwhile, Gazzetta also reports that Giorgio Chiellini could be left at home, as he’s yet to recover from a calf injury.
The Juventus medical staff had been working round the clock to have the defender fit in time, but it appears he won’t make the match, and could stay to work on his fitness ahead of Sunday’s derby with Torino.
