Taking heart from the past and looking positively towards the future.
This was the exact approach adopted by the Bianconeri upon their return to Turin at midday on Thursday following last night’s brave performance against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.
Transferring directly from the airport to Vinovo, the players involved in the second leg in Bavaria underwent a thorough warm-down session to recharge their batteries in the build-up to Sunday afternoon’s Derby Della Mole at Torino’s Stadio Olimpico (kick-off 15.00 CET). Meanwhile, those not given game time in Munich focused on fitness drills.
Giorgio Chiellini and Claudio Marchisio will not be fit in time for the fixture against Giampiero Ventura’s charges, while Paulo Dybala trained separately from the rest of the squad and his condition is being monitored day by day.
Massimiliano Allegri will lead his men out at Juventus Center again tomorrow morning, as they step up their preparations for the weekend’s return to Serie A action.
