Of course, it’s a return for the mighty Cristiano Ronaldo who is coming back to Old Trafford once again, but this time in white and black stripes.

Juventus official channels just announced their 20-man squad and Mario Mandzukic has been ruled out after sustaining a sprained left ankle during Monday’s training session.

Beside from having Mandzukic sidelined, Massimiliano Allegri is bringing the best team possible after drawing against Genoa this weekend.

For Manchester United, on the other hand, it looks a bit darker as José Mourinho just confirmed that they will miss a couple of key players, according to talksport.com.

United will host Juventus at “The Theater Of Dreams” without Alexis Sanchez, Diogo Dalot, Jesse Lingard, Marouane Fellaini, Phil Jones and Scott McTominay.

“The players you saw this weekend are the ones who are available,” said the United boss at Monday’s press conference  “Nothing to hide. Alexis is out.”
