Turin, 7 January 2022 – In the aftermath of the draw with Napoli, considered to all intents and purposes a missed opportunity to shorten the gap from the Champions League area, good news arrives from the infirmary for Juventus. In view of the game scheduled for Sunday at 18:30 against Roma, Massimiliano Allegri recovers the former on duty Luca Pellegrini e Kaio Jorge, both out yesterday for flu, but above all captain Giorgio Chiellini, who recovered from Covid-19. “Giorgio Chiellini has carried out the control with a diagnostic test (swab) for Covid-19 with a negative result. The player therefore cured and no longer subjected to the isolation regime will join the team tomorrow at the JTC”, the announcement of the Juventus club.
Which means, pending the return of Leonardo Bonucci, to make up the defensive pair against the Giallorossi will be Chiellini and Matthew De Ligt. Bench instead for Daniele Rugani, author of a substantially flawless performance in front of Insigne and associates. Like Chiellini, Pellegrini could also be immediately launched from the first minute at the Olimpico, in light of the not perfect physical conditions of Alex Sandro. “He had a resentment, his flexor hardened and he went out”, the words of Allegri after Juve-Napoli. The alternative on the left is represented by Mattia De Sciglio. For the rest, the formation of the Old Lady should be basically the same, with Rodrigo Bentancur e Paulo Dybala but who are applying for a place in the starting eleven.
