While the majority of today’s talk has understandably revolved around the Bianconeri’s next stop on this season’s Champions League journey, Real Madrid couldn’t have been further from the team’s thoughts on the training ground in Vinovo, where they continued to work towards Sunday’s Derby della Mole encounter with Torino.
Tactics formed the main focus of an afternoon session in which Juventus worked on the specific movements to deploy against the Granata.
Carlos Tevez, who missed yesterday’s workout to recover from the flu, was back training alongside his team-mates, but Patrice Evra was absent due to a sore left hip sustained during Wednesday’s Champions League tie with Monaco. The Frenchman’s medical tests returned negative results, meaning he will also rest tomorrow before returning to the fold on Sunday.
Another afternoon session is in the offing for tomorrow, with Massimiliano Allegri to speak to the media beforehand at midday CET.
