Andrea Barzagli and Giorgio Chiellini are both seen as doubts to be fit in time for Juventus’ weekend derby with Torino.
The duo have been left out of the Bianconeri’s Europa League squad for tonight’s Round of 32 clash with Trabzonspor as they continue recovery from respective calf injuries.
However, Chiellini, who picked his up 10 days ago against Verona and Barzagli, in suffering his a week before that, are both seen as by no means guaranteed to return in time for the weekend match at home to Torino.
Tuttosport suggest that both defenders are currently a doubt to make the derby and that, in their place, the back-line likely to start against Il Toro will be Leonardo Bonucci, Angelo Ogbonna and Martin Caceres.
