Mandzukic & Chiellini out of Juventus squad to face Ajax; Can & Ronaldo included


Juventus have announced their squad for Champions League quarter-final second leg match against Ajax at home.

Mario Mandzukic and Giorgio Chiellini are out of the Juventus squad to face Ajax in tomorrow’s Champions League quarter-final, so Moise Kean is likely to start.

The first leg ended 1-1 in Amsterdam and the decider is at the Allianz Juventus Stadium on Tuesday.

Mandzukic has not looked like his usual self lately and Max Allegri confirmed in an interview with Sky Sport Italia this evening that he could not continue to play through the pain of a knee tendon problem.


As expected, Chiellini has not recovered from a calf strain either, so he is not in the squad, while Martin Caceres also misses out.
