Allegri says Dybala will start against Atletico; Khedira out
MADRID (AP) Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says Paulo Dybala will start Wednesday's match against Atletico Madrid in the round of 16 of the Champions League, but Sami Khedira has been ruled out because of an injury.
Allegri did not disclose any details on Khedira's injury, saying the club would later issue a statement on his condition. The coach said Khedira stayed in Italy to undergo tests.
Allegri started his news conference on Tuesday by announcing that Dybala would be in the starting lineup for the first leg at Atletico's Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.
He did not reveal the rest of the starting lineup, although Cristiano Ronaldo was expected to be playing in his first game in Madrid since joining Juventus from Real Madrid last summer.
