‘Buffon out for Roma’

It’s “almost impossible” for Gianluigi Buffon to face Roma on Saturday, admits Juventus Coach Massimiliano Allegri.

The goalkeeper has missed the last three matches with a muscular problem, and hasn’t been called-up for tomorrow’s Coppa Italia match with Genoa.

“We’re evaluating [Juan] Cuadrado day-by-day,” Allegri explained in his pre-match Press conference.

“Buffon definitely won’t train this week and it’s difficult - almost impossible - for him to be available for Roma.

“[Giorgio] Chiellini is available, he’s trained well so he could play tomorrow. I need to decide whether to play him or [Andrea] Barzagli.

“[Stephan] Lichtsteiner is back, he’s available, and I think he’ll play tomorrow.

“Could Carlo Pinsoglio play tomorrow? No, [Wojciech] Szczesny will play.”
