Pepe could miss Bologna too

League leaders Juventus could be without Simone Pepe for this weekend’s Serie A game against Bologna.

The wide attacker is definitely out of Wednesday’s Coppa Italia semi-final match with Milan, but he’s also a doubt for the Dall’Ara tie.

The Italian international picked up an ankle injury in the 0-0 draw with Siena on Sunday and will require up to four days’ rest.

Although not thought to be too serious, it’s unclear whether he will be fit enough to take part in the game at the weekend.

Pepe, 28, has five goals in 21 League appearances for the Old Lady so far this season.

Meanwhile, there are suggestions that the Bologna-Juve tie could be moved to Sunday afternoon because of the weather in Italy. It is currently scheduled as the evening game.
