Mandzukic, Evra to miss Sevilla clash

Juventus will go into their Champions League clash against Sevilla on Tuesday without the services of striker Mario Mandzukic and defender Patrice Evra. 

Juventus currently top the Group D standings and booked their spot in the last 16 when they defeated Manchester City 1-0 in the previous round of fixtures, with Mandzukic grabbing the lone goal.

However, the 29-year-old striker has been sidelined for his side's final group stage match due to illness, while Evra is recovering from a knock he suffered to his right knee during his side’s 2-0 win over Lazio last Friday. 

Juventus have won three and drawn two of the five Champions League games they have played thus far and they will only need to secure a point during their match against Sevilla to ensure they finish as group winners.
