Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo faces an anxious wait to discover whether four of his key players will be available for Sunday’s Derby d’Italia against Inter, a report in the Italian media explained today.

Corriere dello Sport, via their print edition, report that the rookie coach is certain to be without Paulo Dybala and Matthijs de Ligt at San Siro, with Dybala facing 15-20 days on the sidelines due to a knee injury and De Ligt isolating after testing positive for Covid-19 on Friday.

Federico Chiesa and Weston McKennie meanwhile hope to be back available for Pirlo to take on the Nerazzurri, after tests yesterday excluded serious injuries for both.

Alex Sandro and Juan Cuadrado, both of whom have had Covid-19 for about a week, could also return, at least to the Bianconeri’s match-day squad, provided they return negative test results.

Juventus head into the match against their arch rivals trailing them by four points in the standings but they also have a game in hand on Antonio Conte’s side, who currently occupy second spot in Serie A.
