Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo will assess Matthijs de Ligt, who also said that Leonardo Bonucci has only ‘partially qualified’ and that Alvaro Morata is ‘better’ than Lazio.
According to the coach of the Old Lady, Aaron Ramsey and Nicol Fagioli can face the Aquile on Saturday.
Coach Pirlo would have to rely on some of his players to “grit their teeth” to keep going without the rest they need, as the Bianconeri have had several absentees in recent weeks and are still short.
“Some of the unavailable players have partially practiced with the squad this morning; we still have one day to find someone,” he said.
Rodrigo Bentancur tested positive for coronavirus, and Pirlo admits he’ll have to come up with something new to counter Simone Inzaghi’s team.
“It’s a shame Bentacur isn’t available; we’ll have to come up with a way to field the best lineup possible.”
Pirlo said Spain international Alvaro Morata ‘improves’ every day. Matthijs de Ligt has yet to return to training with the squad.
Pirlo added, “De Ligt has not yet practiced. We’ll see how he is tomorrow,” says the narrator.
Leonardo Bonucci has returned to training, and although he is feeling a little better, he has been out for 16 days.
“Morata is getting better; he attempts to change his shape every day.”
