Juventus goalkeeper Alex Manninger admits their Europa League qualifier with Sturm Graz is a special game for him.

As Gianluigi Buffon is out following back surgery, Manninger is expected to take the gloves ahead of Marco Storari.

“It’s a special game for me and will be more emotional than usual,” he told Juventus Channel.

“We’re going to play in a beautiful city where football is passionate and the stadium, albeit small, will be packed.

“Within two days of the draw, the tickets for this game were sold out. For them the meeting with Juventus is the match of the year.”
