Juventus coach Antonio Conte has received some encouraging news from the treatment table ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League match against Bayern Munich, as Mirko Vucinic has been given the green light to feature in the first leg of the quarter-final tie.


The Montenegro international missed Saturday’s 2-1 Serie A win over arch-rivals Inter due to flu, and there were doubts whether he would recover in time for the match at the Allianz Arena.

However, the attacker has been included in the travelling party for Tuesday’s match in Munich and is raring to go again after a brief lay-off.

Meanwhile, Sebastian Giovinco has also made the match squad for the game against the Bundesliga leaders.

The attacker missed Sunday morning’s training session after picking up a knock in the win over Inter following Esteban Cambiasso’s horror tackle, but he’s deemed fit enough for Tuesday’s clash.

The first leg at the Allianz Arena is scheduled to kick off at 20:45CET, with the return in Turin taking place on April 10.
