With less than three days to go until Juventus get back to Serie A action against Chievo – on Saturday 9 September at 18.00 CEST at Allianz Stadium – the Bianconeri were able to fill their boots on a sunny, goal-laden afternoon in Vinovo.
Local outfit Chieri were the opposition in Wednesday’s warm-up friendly, in which Federico Bernardeschi opened the scoring before Gonzalo Higuain hit a hat-trick, Pipita’s second two strikes coming after Miralem Pjanic made his mark with a looping header. A clean sheet down the other end, meanwhile, ensured a 5-0 victory for Massimiliano Allegri’s men.
Today saw a number of familiar faces return to Juventus Training Center from international duty: Bernardeschi, Gianluigi Buffon, Daniele Rugani, Sami Khedira, Mario Mandzukic and Medhi Benatia.
Allegri and company return to work tomorrow afternoon, as they step up preparations for the visit of Rolando Maran’s Chievo on Saturday.
