Andrea Pirlo is fit and could return to the Juventus side for the Bianconeri’s trip to Lazio tomorrow night.
The playmaker had been struggling with a thigh strain, and played no part in Juventus’ last Serie A game or Italy’s matches with Croatia and Al六合投注网站bania.
The international break appears to have given the midfielder a chance to recover, with Massimiliano Allegri telling journalists in his pre-match Press conference that Pirlo is available for selection tomorrow.
“Pirlo is training with the team,” the Juventus Coach told assembled media.
“He’s available and can play tomorrow night.
“As for the other injured players, Evra has almost recovered and after Sunday he will return to the squad, then he or Asamoah will play on Wednesday [away to Malmo].
“Caceres we hope to have back after the Torino game, Ogbonna should be back with the team this week.
“Barzagli is here, even though he’s not training with the team, and Vidal came back [from international duty] last night. He’s fine, and he’s available.
“Romulo has an ongoing groin injury, there are days when it’s better and d网络外围投注ays when it’s worse.
“We’ll evaluate him today and see whether he’ll be available for Saturday’s game against Lazio.”
Allegri was questioned about the spate of injuries the Old Lady has endured, with suggestions that a number of players have suffered a relapse.
“No, Marrone is the only one who had a relapse,” the former Milan Coach contended.
“Barzagli’s injury we knew was a delicate operation and we hope to have him back as soon as possible.
“The others are almost ready to return to the team, and having them available is important, it’s essential for me to have everyone available to choose from and to be able to rotate.
“We have a lot of games, and we must play them with the right intensity, so to have everyone available to me would be much better.”
