Pogba ruled out of Real Madrid clash

Juventus have confirmed Paul Pogba will miss Tuesday's Champions League semi-final first leg against Real Madrid.

The France international has been missing with a torn thigh since mid-March, missing the last-eight win against Monaco and several key Serie A games.

Coach Massimiliano Allegri had been optimistic that he could feature in Turin against Carlo Ancelotti's side but tests have been revealed that he will not have recovered in time.

"The MRI scan taken by Paul Pogba this afternoon revealed that the player has made further progress in his recovery from a torn thigh muscle," a club statement read.

"The player will undergo a personalised recovery regime before potentially returning with the group on Wednesday."

That would allow Pogba to feature in the second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu on May 13.
