Higuain on bench, Mandzukic starts in Coppa Italia final
Gonzalo Higuain has been named as a substitute for Juventus' Coppa Italia final against AC Milan on Wednesday.
The Argentina international misses out after Mario Mandzukic recovered from an ankle injury to line-up alongside Paulo Dybala in attack.
There were initial fears that Mandzukic's injury – sustained after a poor tackle from Inter's Matias Vecino during a Serie A game last month – could rule him out of the rest of the season.
The 31-year-old took part in training this week, though, and is back in the starting XI as Massimiliano Allegri's men look to win a fourth consecutive Coppa Italia.
