Monaco without Carvalho against Juventus

22 April 2015, 20:36

Monaco - Monaco are without veteran defender Ricardo Carvalho for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Juventus on Wednesday as they try to overturn a 1-0 first-leg deficit.

Carvalho, a former Champions League winner with Porto who has played 86 games in the competition, is not even on the bench at the Stade Louis II with coach Leonardo Jardim instead selecting Andrea Raggi to partner Aymen Abdennour in the heart of the back four.

Further forward, captain Jeremy Toulalan and Geoffrey Kondogbia are back after injury and start in midfield, while Bernardo Silva, who has scored Monaco's last three goals in Ligue 1, also starts.

In attack, the 19-year-old Anthony Martial is preferred to Dimitar Berbatov, who is on the bench.

Meanwhile, Juventus line-up as expected with Arturo Vidal, who scored the only goal in last week's first leg in Turin from the penalty spot, taking his place in the side after recovering from illness.

Coach: Leonardo Jardim (POR)

Juventus (3-5-2): Buffon (c); Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini; Lichtsteiner, Marchisio, Pirlo, Vidal, Evra; Tevez, Morata

Coach: Massimiliano Allegri (ITA)
