Two wins over Manchester City and Genoa in the space of five days got the Bianconeri’s season up on its feet and the champions reconvened in Vinovo this morning to begin preparing for another important week, with games at home to Frosinone on Wednesday and away at Napoli the following Saturday on the horizon.
With his eyes on six points from those coming fixtures, Massimiliano Allegri set his men back to work at Juventus Center today with a post-match workout as those involved against the Rossoblu underwent a routine warm-down session.
Missing out on training today were strike duo Mario Mandzukic and Alvaro Morata, who were both subjected to medical examinations after reporting injuries during the win over Genoa.
The Croatian forward’s tests revealed a first-grade tear of the bicep femoris muscle in his right thigh, which will require a recovery period of 20 days.
Morata’s medical checks ruled out any serious muscle damage in the abdominal region and his condition will continue to be monitored over the coming days.
As the build-up to Frosinone picks up pace, Juve’s Tuscan boss Allegri will answer the media’s questions tomorrow at Juventus Center from 12.00 CEST. As ever, live tweets of his press conference can be followed on the club's official Twitter account @juventusfcen.
