Juventus' Sami Khedira misses Atletico Madrid trip to undergo heart tests

Ghana's Thomas Partey could be in the starting line-up for Atletico Madrid when they welcome Juventus to the Wanda Metropolitano for their Champions League clash on Wednesday night.

Khedira trained as normal on Monday and Tuesday, but an "atrial arrhythmia" was noticed in their final session and Juve have sent him for tests.

"He was getting back into a great physical condition so we could have done without this, but our other midfielders are all of great calibre", said Allegri, who confirmed that Paulo Dybala will start.

Paulo Dybala is set to start, however, after the Argentina worldwide - who is enduring an underwhelming season - scored in last week's 3-0 win over Frosinone.

"I wouldn't take a draw now".

The first half of Tuesday's game was played at a frantic pace, with the second period a somewhat more cerebral affair. If you sign up to a service by clicking one of the links, we may earn a referral fee.

"Because Ronaldo, aside from what he does on the pitch - and only a insane person would question him because he scores goals and creates them - has been important for us because he has been an example on how to better ourselves".

"The Champions League's not an obligation, it's an objective which often depends on getting breaks for or against you".

Ronaldo has faced Atletico on as many as 31 occasions, and the first of those appearances came in the colours of Real during the early months of 2010 as his side prevailed by a 3-2 scoreline without him providing a goal or assist.

"After many years dominating in Italy, we could assume we'd reached our maximum, but thanks to Cristiano, we are doing even more than we thought we could - searching for new limits".
