Sami Khedira calms Juventus fears ahead of Champions League tie with Real Madrid by offering positive fitness update: 'Now every

Sami Khedira has moved to allay fears over an injury he sustained in Germany's draw with Spain on Friday evening.

The Juventus midfielder has taken to Twitter to give fans a positive update ahead of next month's Champions League tie against Real Madrid.

Khedira provided the assist for Thomas Muller's equaliser at the Esprit Arena in Dusseldorf before sustaining a knock to his left knee in a challenge with Spain playmaker Thiago Alcantara.

The 30-year-old was eventually replaced in the 53rd minute by Manchester City's Ilkay Gundogan, but took to social media shortly after the game to play down concerns he could be absent during a crucial part of the campaign.

'It's been a good match against a very tough opponent. We know that it's never easy against Spain!' he tweeted.

'By the way, don't worry about my sub: It was only a precautionary measure after I felt a small induration [sic]. But now everything is fine again!'

An even game between two of the favourites for this summer's World Cup finished 1-1 after Muller cancelled out Valencia striker Rodrigo's early effort.

A host of Premier League players, including Arsenal's Mesut Ozil, Manchester City's David Silva and Manchester United's David de Gea also featured in the high-profile friendly.

The news over Khedira comes as a boost to Juventus as they prepare for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie against long-time European rivals Real Madrid on April 3.

The Spanish side host the second leg just over a week later in Madrid, with Khedira now almost certain to be on show for his team against his former employers.
