Monchengladbach, Nov 2: Italian football champions Juventus on Monday confirmed that midfielder Sami Khedira will miss the European Champions League group stage game away against Borussia Monchengladbach due to injury. The German intertiol went off injured after just nine minutes of the local Serie A derby against Torino, prompting fears he had torn a calf muscle.
"Sami Khedira underwent medical tests on Monday in Vinovo, which revealed a slight muscular strain but ruled out any tear," Juventus said in their website. "The midfielder will therefore miss out on the Champions League trip to Germany and his condition will be monitored over the coming days." IANS
