Last night’s Champions League exploits in Monte Carlo would usually be deserving of a day’s rest, but with the Derby della Mole coming up on Sunday afternoon, there’s no time for the reigning champions to take their foot off the gas.
Six points from two games are required to mathematically secure a fourth consecutive Scudetto title and Massimiliano Allegri’s men will be aiming to bag three of these when they make the short trip to face inter-city rivals Torino at the Stadio Olimpico.
Today brought the standard post-match routine for the Bianconeri: those who played their part in sealing a Champions League semi-final spot yesterday evening underwent a warm-down, while the remainder of the first-team squad worked with and without the ball on the Vinovo training pitches.
Carlos Tevez was the one to miss out on the session, remaining at home to recover from a bout of the flu.
Tomorrow, after learning their fate in the Champions League semi-final draw, the Bianconeri will regroup on the training ground for a solitary workout.
