Pjanic spared against Torino
By Football Italia staff
Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic will not be risked against Torino, as Gonzalo Higuain returns to training before the Derby della Mole this weekend.
Both players picked up injuries against Lecce and were forced to miss the 2-1 win over Genoa this week.
Pjanic is still sore from a muscle problem in his thigh and will not be risked against the archrivals, to prevent aggravating the issue.
The scans have shown no tear in the Bosnian’s muscle and he will soon be back in contention for the Bianconeri, but they will take things slowly as a precaution to be sure the playmaker can contribute in a tight program.
Tuttosport do report that Argentinian forward Higuain will be available to play at the Stadio Olimpico di Torino, as the CAT scan proved to be negative.
The former Napoli man was spotted on the training ground today, as Maurizio Sarri has two days to prepare for the local derby.
Higuain's clash with Lecce goalkeeper Gabriel didn’t cause any damage of concern other than a cut.
