The physical aspect of match preparation was spotlighted by Antonio Conte in training today, with his men working hard to build their fitness in the continued absence of those on international duty.
The Juventus boss had granted the group two days of rest before this morning’s session, but he maintained a high intensity to proceedings today in order to ensure that the Bianconeri are at peak fitness when the crucial upcoming period of fixtures begins with Sunday’s clash away at Fiorentina.
While the gym was the site of this morning’s workout, it was on the field that the Juve players exerted themselves after lunch, continuing to work on agility and movement with technical exercises that included piggy in the middle.
Tomorrow, the group will be rejoined by the international players who are tasked with helping their sides to reach the World Cup in important qualifiers this evening. And with those fixtures behind them, an afternoon session is on the agenda for Conte's men as they reunite with one aim in mind: Fiorentina.
