uefa_cl:City preparations take flight in Vinovo

The Bianconeri get back to work on the training ground as the countdown to Wednesday’s Champions League tie begins

Fresh from last night’s Serie A success over Milan, Massimiliano Allegri welcomed his troops back to Vinovo to begin preparations for Wednesday evening’s Champions League tie with Manchester City.

Those who featured in yesterday’s triumph against the Rossoneri underwent a warm-down, while for the remainder of the squad it was business as usual during a mixed workout on the Juventus Center training pitches.

Four players missed out on the session. Patrice Evra suffered a light twisted ankle during last night’s game with Milan and his condition will be monitored over the course of the coming days.

Also on the sidelines was Hernanes, who reported discomfort in his adductor muscle and will undergo tests tomorrow. Meanwhile, Sami Khedira is still feeling the effects of a muscle injury sustained before the international break, meaning he will train separately next week.

Finally, Martin Caceres’ condition will continue to be assessed on a daily basis as he bids to shake off a thigh strain.
