  • Chiesa's been out since January
  • Finally back to fitness
  • In squad to face PSG

WHAT HAPPENED? The Juventus striker has been sidelined since suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury back in January against Roma. Chiesa returned to training with Massimiliano Allegri's side at the start of October and has now moved a step closer to a first-team comeback by being named in the squad to face PSG.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Chiesa's return will be a boost to Juventus who have a lengthy injury list that includes Paul Pogba, Weston McKennie, Leandro Paredes, Dusan Vlahovic, Angel Di Maria, Mattia De Sciglio, and Kaio Jorge. Juventus have already been eliminated from the Champions League but head into the match in third place in the group and can still qualify for the Europa League.
