Argentina striker Higuain trained on Wednesday (AEDT) and has been declared fit for the second leg of the last-16 tie at Wembley.

The 30 year-old, who scored twice and missed a penalty in last month's 2-2 draw in Turin, missed the Bianconeri's previous two matches with an ankle injury.

His timely return softens the blow of Mandzukic's absence.

The Croatia international is battling a thigh problem and was not among the 21-man party that departed for London.
