Juventus team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Porto

Sports Mole rounds up all of Juventus' latest injury and suspension news ahead of their Champions League last-16 second leg with Porto on Tuesday.

Juventus will endeavour to overturn a 2-1 deficit from their Champions League last-16 first leg against Porto when they welcome the Portuguese powerhouses to Turin for the second leg on Tuesday evening.

The Portuguese champions firmly had one foot in the next round as Mehdi Taremi and Moussa Marega put them 2-0 up heading into the final 10 minutes, but Federico Chiesa bagged a vital away goal for Andrea Pirlo's men late on.

The injury-hit Bianconeri managed to warm up for this game in perfect fashion with a 3-1 triumph over Lazio on Saturday, as Alvaro Morata (2) and Adrien Rabiot both made the net ripple on the night.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Juventus' latest injury and suspension news ahead of the second leg.
