 Italian football club Juventus are looking for a miracle against Real Madrid in UEFA Champions League quarter-finals second leg in Madrid on Wednesday.

Juventus, which lost the first leg 3-0 in Italy, are seeking a big surprise as they may be missing their Argentine star Paulo Dybala.

In addition to Neuer, other Bayern players including Austrian left-back David Alaba, Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal and French winger Kingsley Coman are facing injury troubles.

Visitors Sevilla’s Danish central defender Simon Kjaer, 29, is also injured.
