Juventus coach Max Allegri is anxious to wait for Frederico Chiesa physical condition before the big match at the weekend against Napoli, while the whites will have to cope without five key players at the Diego Maradona stadium.
The Whites will travel to Napoli for Sunday’s big game, but Allegri will have to cope without Chiesa, who suffered an injury during the qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
SportItalia reports that it is still not certain if Chiesa will be ready for the first match after the national team, while Juventus is still looking for its first victory in Serie A in the 2021/22 season.
The report says that the injury of the former Fiorentina winger does not look serious, but he has to face the time to be ready for the match against Luciano Spalletti’s team.
Dejan Kulusevski can start against Napoli, but Allegri still has hopes that Chiesa will be ready.
Chiesa’s return from the injured Italian camp adds to the list of players who are not sure they will be able to play against Napoli.
Napoli, on the other hand, have Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen ready, as the Neapolitan team won the appeal for his suspension to last only one match.
The visitors have to leave some other key players on the bench, as the South American players are also at war with time to be ready for the Serie A matches.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Paulo Dybala wants to play at all costs, but he is not nearly 100 percent, like other players who have traveled to South America.
Brazil duo Danilo and Alex Sandro cannot come at all, while right-back Juan Cuadrado is reportedly having problems traveling to Italy.
