Khedira boost for Juventus

Sami Khedira, Juventus

Juventus received a massive boost after Germany international Sami Khedira provided a positive injury update.

Khedira lasted just 10 minutes of their Champions League semi-final second leg win over Monaco, prompting worries that the German's injury was serious.

Despite missing the hard working Khedira, Juventus were still too strong for Monaco as they won 2-1 on the night, to seal a 4-1 aggregate victory.

Khedira has since taken to his official Instagram account to confirm that his injury was "nothing serious" and he will be available to face his former club in the final of the Champions League. 

"Good news. It's nothing serious," he said in an Instagram post.

"I'll need to rest for the next couple of days but after that I'll be able to help the team in the decisive games of the season," he wrote.

The Bianconeri are one win away from winning a sixth consecutive Scudetto, and also in the final of the Coppa Italia.

But, it was the final of the Champions League, and a date with his former club that was on the German's mind. 

"Still excited we made it yo the [Champions League] final and especially the way we played.

"Very much looking forward to meeting [Real Madrid] for the big showdown in Cardiff," he wrote.
