Angel Di Maria will miss an early return to Paris Saint-Germain as he was dropped from Juventus’ squad for the Champions League opener in the French capital on Monday. Juve did not explain why the Argentine winger, who crashed out of half-time in their 1-1 draw at Fiorentina on Saturday, was not picked for Tuesday’s Group H clash at Parc des Princes. Coach Massimiliano Allegri said after the weekend Serie A that Di Maria had been replaced as a precaution.

The 34-year-old had only returned to action after suffering a thigh injury at his Juve debut last month.

Also absent will be Paul Pogba, who returned to training on Sunday after recovering from a knee injury, and Wojciech Szczesny after the Poland goalkeeper sustained an ankle injury against Spezia last week.


Three other former Juve PSG players – Adrian Rabiot, Leandro Paredes and Moise Kean – were all selected to travel to France.
