UCL: Juventus get Khedira boost ahead of Olympiakos tie

Champions League By: Ayodeji Tunde | 26/09/2017


Juventus have welcomed Sami Khedira back in their squad as they get set to face Emmanuel Emenike's Olympiakos in the Champions League on Wednesday.

It kicks off at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT) on Wednesday at the Allianz Juventus Stadium.

The Bianconeri have Khedira available again, even though he only just resumed training with the rest of the squad following injury problems.

There is also a bit of more good news for Juve as, Claudio Marchisio also started training today, but is not fit enough to be included in the group.

Marko Pjaca, Benedikt Howedes and Mattia De Sciglio are long-term absentees, out for at least three to four weeks.

Stephan Lichtsteiner was left out of the Champions League squad this season, so there is a definite shortage of right-backs in the side.

Juventus squad for Olympiakos: Buffon, Pinzoglio, Szczesny; Chiellini, Benatia, Alex Sandro, Barzagli, Rugani; Pjanic, Khedira, Matuidi, Asamoah, Sturaro, Bentancur; Cuadrado, Higuain, Dybala, Douglas Costa, Mandzukic, Bernardeschi
