Even after having returned to Turin during the early hours of this morning, Massimiliano Allegri’s troops were back in training at Vinovo to prepare themselves for the impending battle with Roma on Sunday evening.
Whilst a light gym workout was in order for those players who featured at the Vicente Calderon yesterday evening, the rest of the squad took to the Juventus Center pitches for a training session full of fitness and tactics drills.
On the injury front, Andrea Barzagli was absent from the group as he is still recovering from pain in his right heel which was operated on in the summer. He will visit a specialist in the next few days.
Martin Caceres was able to take part in the warm-down after suffering a dislocated right shoulder during the defeat to Atletico Madrid.
On the other hand, Alvaro Morata underwent an MRI scan after pulling up during yesterday’s game. Although the tests ruled out any muscular damage, they did reveal that the 21-year-old has suffered a slight strain of the right gluteus.
His condition will be assessed over the next few days to see if he is fit enough for Sunday’s game with the Giallorossi.
