For the Bianconeri not involved in international fixtures, the breaks in the Serie A calendar are a precious opportunity not only to regain full physical fitness but also for some moments of mental respite from the frenetic schedule they have navigated in recent weeks.
Antonio Conte realises full well that rest is not to be underestimated, and for that reason he has granted two days off to the Juventus players who have been training hard in Vinovo all week.
The squad will regroup on Tuesday morning to step up a gear in their preparations for the next fixture. Livorno await the Bianconeri on Sunday 23 November at the Stadio Armando Picchi, a team currently towards the lower end of the Serie A table but not easy opponents by any means, as back-to-back 4-1 and 2-0 wins against Sassuolo and Catania earlier in the campaign demonstrate.
The group will still be without the players away on international duty, who will rejoin them after completing their various engagements around the globe.
