• UCL: Benatia out against Sporting through injury

    By Football Italia staff

    Juventus have named Mattia De Sciglio in their squad to face Sporting CP on Tuesday, but there is still no Medhi Benatia.

    De Sciglio is the only recognised right-back in Juve’s squad, with Stephan Lichtsteiner ineligible for the Champions League.

    However, it remains to be seen whether he is fit enough to appear in Lisbon after staying on the substitutes’ bench for the Bianconeri’s last two games.

    Benatia, meanwhile, remains sidelined with an ankle problem as the Old Lady can all-but-secure a top-two place in Group D with victory over Sporting.

    Juve squad for Sporting: Buffon, Pinsoglio, Szczesny; De Sciglio, Chiellini, Alex Sandro, Barzagli, Rugani; Pjanic, Khedira, Marchisio, Matuidi, Asamoah, Sturaro, Bentancur; Cuadrado, Higuain, Dybala, Douglas Costa, Mandzukic, Bernardeschi
