Barzagli & Buffon Doubtful For Juventus-Inter

Barzagli & Buffon Doubtful For Juventus-Inter

Ahead of Saturday night’s Derby D’Italia, Juventus boss Max Allegri has some doubts with regard to the availability of some of his key players.

Veteran central defender Andrea Barzagli was forced off in the Bianconeri’s 2-0 Champions League win over Olympiacos on Tuesday night with an injury and is a doubt.

Goalkeeper Gianlugi Buffon did not even feature against the Greek side as he continues to recover from a calf injury. Moreover, the 39-year-old missed training yesterday as a result of the same injury.

Stephan Lichtsteiner has also missed the past two games with a muscle injury and is doubtful.

Allegri has however received a welcome boost when it came to the situations of Mehdi Benatia and Mario Mandzukic. Benatia returned to training and is no longer a doubt while Mandzukic is now fully recovered from his respective injury and highly likely to feature on Saturday against Inter. Giorgio Chiellini is also likely to return after the flu kept him out of the Olympiacos game.
