Antonio Conte may be deprived of the 12 players on international duty with their respective countries, but the hard work continues regardless at Juventus Center in Vinovo.
After enjoying a well-earned day of rest in the wake of Sunday’s fine 2-0 triumph at the San Siro, those remaining in Turin regrouped at the club’s training base to begin their preparations for another crucial encounter: Sunday’s lunchtime meeting with Fiorentina at Juventus Stadium.
This marks the start of a mouthwatering triple-header against the Viola, who also travel to Turin four days later for the first of a two-legged Europa League last 16 meeting.
For now, though, the focus remains fully on league matters as the Bianconeri aim to remain firmly on course for a historic third Scudetto with another important three points in front of their home faithful.
Today’s session consisted of predominantly athletic drills, with ball work expected to come to the fore when the league leaders return to their preparations tomorrow morning.
