Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic has been ruled out of Tuesday's Champions League clash with Manchester United.

The Croatian suffered a sprained left ankle during training on Monday and has therefore been left out of the 20-man squad travelling to England.

The Serie A champion is otherwise mostly at full strength, with Emre Can the only other major absentee as he recovers from a thyroid problem.

 

Juve heads into the match at Old Trafford as leader of Group H, having claimed six points from a possible six this season. United is two points further back in second place.
