A big week lies in wait for Massimiliano Allegri’s men: first, another big Champions League night on Wednesday against Dinamo Zagreb with first place in Group H at stake, then, the small matter of the Derby della Mole at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday.
With that in mind, it was all hands to the pump in Vinovo as the Bianconeri began preparing for the Croatians and their cross-city rivals Torino this afternoon as the last push towards the winter break truly got underway.
Having recharged batteries after a day of rest yesterday, the Serie A league leaders set about preparing for their next European challenge by walking through their preliminary tactical plans for Dinamo out on the Vinovo pitches.
The Old Lady will be back tomorrow with an action-packed pre-UCL schedule: the squad will reconvence at Juventus Center at 15.15 CET for training – the first 15 minutes of which will be open to the media – before coach Allegri and Claudio Marchisio preview Wednesday’s encounter in their pre-match press conference at 19.20 at the Stadium.
Our visitors meanwhile, are set to train on Turin turf at 19.00 but not before they address the media themselves at 18.30, with the Zagreb club’s full conference to be streamed live at Juventus.com in Croatian.
