Knee injury scare for Pirlo

Andrea Pirlo has an injury scare ahead of Sunday's Juventus-Milan match, while Paolo De Ceglie is ruled out.

The official Bianconeri website confirms in the final stages of today's training session, Pirlo “received a knock to the left knee.

“The midfielder's conditions will be evaluated over the next few hours, but his name is included in the squad named by Antonio Conte.”

It would be a huge blow for Juve if Pirlo were to miss out, not to mention on a personal level, as he is set to face his former teammates.

De Ceglie has been left out as a precautionary measure following another knock, while Mirko Vucinic has returned from his ban.

Juventus squad: Buffon, Chiellini, Pazienza, Grosso, Pepe, Marchisio, Del Piero, Vucinic, Barzagli, Elia, Quagliarella, Bonucci, Pirlo, Vidal, Giaccherini, Lichtsteiner, Krasic, Estigarribia, Storari, Matri, Morrone
