Lucio and Bendtner in Juve squad

Lucio has made a rapid recovery, while Nicklas Bendtner and Mauricio Isla have their first call-ups of the season for Genoa-Juventus.

The Bianconeri named their squad for tomorrow afternoon’s trip to Marassi and it includes Lucio, who had originally been ruled out for two to three months by a ligament injury.

The former Inter defender has recovered faster than expected and is available for selection.

Isla also returns after missing the last seven months due to damaged knee ligaments while he was still at Udinese.

The winger played 67 minutes for Chile in a World Cup qualifier against Colombia this week.

Juventus fans will get their first opportunity to see Bendtner, who has been on a strict diet and exercise regime to get into shape since completing his loan move from Arsenal.
