Juventus have confirmed that Stefano Sturaro and Medhi Benatia did not train with the squad on Friday.
A statement on Juve’s official website explained Benatia had “a knock to his left ankle” from Wednesday’s 2-1 win against Sporting CP, while Sturaro had “a problem in his left thigh.”
The defender’s absence should see Daniele Rugani enter the Bianconeri’s line-up for the match against Udinese on Sunday, while Sturaro had been filling in at right-back.
Benedikt Howedes is still out with an ankle injury, but Mattia De Sciglio is closing in on a return as he joined Marko Pjaca in training ‘partially’.
