They won the reverse fixture at Old Trafford late last month and a chance to do a double on their visitors suffers heavy injuries.

Matuidi is said to have picked up a bruise on his right hip during his side's 3-1 victory over Cagliari, whereas Costa needed physiotherapy treatment on a thigh injury.

Jose Mourinho will be hoping his side gives a better showing away from home, having suffered a 1-0 defeat against the Italians in the reverse fixture played at Old Trafford.

Paulo Dybala netted the solitary goal that condemned the Red Devils to an embarrassing defeat.

Legit.ng recalls that Paulo Dybala's lone goal was all that Juventus needed to beat Manchester United in their Champions League clash at Old Trafford.

It was Cristiano Ronaldo's second return to the stadium since he left the club in the summer of 2009 and join Real Madrid in a mega deal back then.

The Italian side after the win consolidated their leadership on the group table with nine points after three games.
