Juve name Super Cup squad

Juventus have named their 27-man squad for the Italian Super Cup against Napoli in Beijing, including Leonardo Bonucci.

The Bianconeri beat Malaga 2-0 last night in a Salerno friendly and will fly directly to China for the encounter on August 11.

Only Michele Pazienza was left behind of the 26 players in Salerno, but they have been joined by Andrea Barzagli and Mirko Vucinic.

Tellingly, Bonucci is included in the squad despite the fact he could well be suspended by the time the Super Cup clash comes around.

Bonucci was in front of the Disciplinary Commission yesterday afternoon and is fighting the betting trial charges that could see him banned for three years and six months.

Antonio Conte is also fighting a potential 15-month ban, so the Coach sat in the stands for last night’s friendly against Malaga, handing the reins to assistant Massimo Carrera.

The betting trial is expected to make a ruling on August 8-10.

Juventus squad for Italian Super Cup: Buffon, Storari, Leali, Branescu, Barzagli, Bonucci, De Ceglie, Lucio, Masi, Rugani, Lichtsteiner, Untersee, Ziegler, Asamoah, Giaccherini, Marchisio, Marrone, Padoin, Pepe, Pirlo, Pogba, Vidal, Boakye, Giovinco, Matri, Quagliarella, Vucinic
