Firmino fires Liverpool to Club World Cup glory

Juventus's Giorgio Chiellini ruled out of Champions League final


Giorgio Chiellini will miss Juventus' Champions League final with Barcelona on Saturday, the club has confirmed.

The defender withdrew from training yesterday, after feeling some discomfort in his calf.

The Bianconeri announced that the player would undergo a scan today to determine the extent of the injury, and it appears the club's worst fears have been realised.

''Giorgio Chiellini was subjected to tests following calf discomfort in yesterday’s session,'' the club announced in a statement.

''The tests showed a first-degree lesion of the soleus muscle in his left leg, so the defender will not be available for the match against Barcelona.''

In better news for the Old Lady, Andrea Barzagli completed the training session again today, and would appear to be available to replace Chiellini in Berlin.
