Striking worry for Juventus

Juventus forwards Zlatan Ibrahimović and David Trezeguet have injuries that put a question mark against their participation against Werder Bremen.

Juventus forwards Zlatan Ibrahimović and David Trezeguet have returned from international duty with injuries that put a question mark against their availability for the UEFA Champions League return match against Werder Bremen next week.

Capello hope
Ibrahimović and Trezeguet suffered knee and ankle knocks respectively, playing for Sweden and France, and will miss Saturday's Serie A trip to UC Sampdoria. Juventus coach Fabio Capello said: "We have been unlucky again with the internationals – I hope they can recover for Tuesday." Juventus welcome German side Bremen to Turin needing to recover a 3-2 first-leg deficit in the first knockout round to reach the quarter-finals.
