Team News: Mario Mandzukic features against Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich will come up against their former striker Mario Mandzukic during their Champions League clash away at Juventus.

Juventus have included Mario Mandzukic in their starting lineup for tonight's Champions League encounter against Bayern Munich, whom he helped to win the trophy in 2013.

The Croatian striker has spent the last month out of action with a thigh complaint, but he has recovered sufficiently to feature from the beginning against his former club.

Mandzukic is one of four players that has come into the side that drew 0-0 with Bologna last Friday, the others being Paulo Dybala, Sami Khedira and Juan Cuadrado.

As for visiting head coach Pep Guardiola, he has had to put together a makeshift defensive unit.

Jerome Boateng, Javi Martinez and Holger Badstuber are all injured, which means that midfielder Joshua Kimmich and full-back David Alaba will form the centre-back pairing.

Juventus: Buffon; Lichtsteiner, Barzagli, Bonucci, Evra; Cuadrado, Khedira, Marchisio, Pogba; Mandzukic, Dybala
Subs: Neto, Rugani, Sturaro, Pereyra, Hernanes, Zaza, Morata

Bayern Munich: Neuer; Lahm, Kimmich, Alaba, Bernat; Vidal, Thiago, Robben, Costa, Muller; Lewandowski
Subs: Ulreich, Benatia, Ribery, Rafinha, Alonso, Gotze, Coman
