He was left on the bench in Saturday's 1-1 draw against Genoa as Max Allegri rotated his side, though - along with the Likes of Giorgio Chiellini - was expected to come back into the team for the visit to Old Trafford.

Juventus club-record signing Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score 400 goals in Europe's top five leagues after helping the Serie A champions maintain their unbeaten start to the 2018/19 season.

Emre Can is unlikely to face Manchester United in the Champions League on Tuesday night after Juventus revealed he "will undergo clinical tests" for a thyroid issue.

"But we have to take the positives from the game and I think the way we played in the second half especially, we were fantastic at times".

The Portuguese striker's fifth league goal for Juve carried him to the milestone, adding to his 84 strikes for Manchester United in the Premier League and 311 for Real Madrid in Spain's La Liga.




Genoa finally grabbed their goal when Daniel Bessa scored off a header in the 66th minute.

There were further chances for Ronaldo, Miralem Pjanic and substitute Paulo Dybala but Genoa stood firm to earn an unexpected point.

Napoli, coached by Carlo Ancelotti who will take his side to former club Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League in midweek, were in front after 12 minutes on Saturday through a superb effort from Spanish player Fabian Ruiz.

Earlier, Roma came unstuck 2-0 to visiting minnows SPAL to dash their hopes of a fourth straight league win.

A flashing header from Kevin Bonifazi finished off a corner on 56 minutes to make it 2-0 to the visitors for their fourth win in nine matches, losing their other five.
