Matri fit for Lecce trip

Alessandro Matri will be fit in time for Juventus' trip to Lecce after playing with an injury during last night's Derby d'Italia.

The 26-year-old Italy international scored the only goal of the game to give his side a precious win, but didn't exactly come away unscathed.

Matri stayed on the pitch for the entire game despite picking up a rib injury.

He underwent a scan last night, which revealed one of his intercostals to be distracted.

Juventus' medical staff expect Matri to be firing on all cylinders again for next Sunday's lunchtime kick off at the Stadio Via Del Mare.

Matri has made a great start to his Juventus career, scoring three goals in three Serie A appearances.

He joined the club on loan from Cagliari in January with a view to a permanent transfer at the end of the season.
