INJURED – “Let’s see if we can recover Mandzukic for the Lazio clash. It will be difficult but we’ll try. Barzagli is working, Benatia is out and Cuadrado is dead (he laughs). Pjanic is improving after the injury at his calf but tomorrow he is suspended so he has one week to recover”.
Juventus injury concerns for Lazio | Football Italia
Juventus could be without Miralem Pjanic, Sami Khedira and Joao Cancelo for Sunday’s match with Lazio.
A statement from the Bianconeri was released after today’s training session.
Pjanic is available again after missing the victory over Chievo due to suspension, but is still training separately from the team with a bruised left calf muscle.
Khedira was expected to start that match at the Bentegodi, but pulled out at the last minute with a knock to the knee.
The German is also not yet working with the full squad, but neither is Cancelo, who has a left calf issue.
It remains to be seen if any of them will recover in time to start Sunday’s Serie A clash.
Meanwhile, Cristiano Ronaldo was given a rare day off from training.
He was in Madrid yesterday to settle his outstanding tax bill with a fine.
