Former Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez may be fit to face Benfica in the Europa League semi-final first leg after missing Juventus's last two games with a thigh injury.

Midfielder Arturo Vidal could also return for the Bianconeri after a knee problem.

Benfica, who beat Tottenham in the last 16, will be without Eduardo Salvio.

The Argentine midfielder broke his arm in the 2-0 win over Olhanense on Sunday that sealed the Portuguese title.

Both sides are keen to secure European silverware with Juventus's last continental success coming in the 1996 Champions League and

Benfica still waiting to add to the European Cup they won in 1962.

The visitors, who have the added incentive of 14 May's final being in their own Juventus Stadium, are eight points clear of Roma at the top of Serie A with four games remaining, Tevez, who moved to Turin in June from Manchester City after spells with Manchester United and West

Ham, is Juve's top goalscorer in the league, netting 18 times so far in his first campaign with the club.

The tie's winners will face either Sevilla or Valencia in the final.
