Juventus prepare for Benfica clash in Champions League

Juventus are preparing for tomorrow’s Champions League clash against Benfica in Turin. Angel Di Maria is training with the team, while Alex Sandro, Manuel Locatelli and Adrien Rabiot are out.

The Bianconeri are desperate for a win in their second group-stage game following their 2-1 loss against PSG last week.

They are training at Continassa, with Di Maria joining the rest of the team for the morning session.

The Argentinean winger has only made two competitive appearances so far this season and missed last week’s clash with PSG despite training with the group on the eve of the day.

Alex Sandro, Locatelli and Rabiot are not training with the group, as seen in the opening 15 minutes of the session open to the media at Continassa.

The two midfielders had missed Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Salernitana, while the Brazilian full-back sustained an injury in the final minutes of the game against the Granata, Football Italia understands.

Paul Pogba, Federico Chiesa and Wojciech Szczesny are also on the sidelines and will remain out of action for several weeks.
