    Juventus return to training after Saturday's victory over Palermo. Medical updates for Kwadwo Asamoah and Daniele Rugani

    Juventus were straight back in training this morning following Saturday evening's 1-0 victory against Palermo. Just hours after returning from Sicily, Massimiliano Allegri set his side to work on preparing for their next impending test, a Champions League trip to Croatia to face Dinamo Zagreb.

    Those involved in last night's action underwent a routine warm-down session in the gym while the remainder of the squad took to the Vinovo pitches for a mixture of fitness and ball work.

    Elsewhere at J-Medical, the extent of the injuries sustained by Daniele Rugani and Kwadwo Asamoah were clarified following medical examinations today. The tests revealed that Asamoah has ruptured the meniscus cartilage, while Rugani has strained the lateral collateral ligament, both in the right knee. 

    The former is expected to undergo surgery with both players anticipated to return within around 45 days. 

    As ever on the eve of a European fixture, tomorrow is set to be a particularly busy one at Bianconeri HQ with the champions due to train at 11.30 CEST before setting off for the Croatian capital later in the afternoon.

    Coach Allegri will then be joined by one of his players to meet the media at 17.45 on arrival in Zagreb at the city's Maksimir Stadium ahead of Tuesday's Matchday 2 fixture (20.45 kick-off).
