Chiellini out of Champions League final, no Suarez reunion

TURIN, Italy (AP) -- Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini has been ruled out of the Champions League final against Barcelona because of a left calf injury, robbing the Italian side of one of its most important players.

The Italy international will miss out on a reunion with Barcelona striker Luis Suarez, who bit Chiellini on the shoulder during a group match at the World Cup in Brazil last year.

Juventus says on its website that Chiellini reported discomfort in his calf on Wednesday, and a scan revealed he has torn a muscle.
