Vucinic a doubt for Juventus

Italian champions Juventus may play Chelsea in the Champions League on Tuesday without Mirko Vucinic.

The Montenegrin international striker has missed the club’s last three games because of firstly injury and then illness.

Vucinic has been struggling to get over a fever which again saw him train separately from the rest of the squad on Sunday.

Boss Antonio Conte will take a closer look at the forward on Monday before deciding whether to select him in the party for the Juventus Stadium tie.

Should he not recover then the Old Lady may begin with a strike pairing of Fabio Quagliarella and Sebastian Giovinco.

Juve need four points from their games against Chelsea and Shakhtar Donetsk to reach the last 16 of the competition.
