Juventus have been dealt a blow ahead of tonight’s Champions League clash with Barcelona as Giorgio Chiellini has been ruled out due to injury.

The centre-back had been expected to feature but will sit this one out due to a thigh problem.

The news will be a boost to Barca who only need a draw to secure top spot in Group D.

Medhi Benatia is expected to come in for the Italy international although Massimiliano Allegri could use Daniele Rugani.
