Medhi Benatia is reportedly a doubt for Juventus’ visit of Udinese in Serie A on Sunday with an ankle problem.
According to Premium Sport, Benatia took a blow to the ankle during Juve’s 2-1 win at Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League on Wednesday.
The issue forced him to leave the game in the second half, but while the broadcaster notes the defender will be assessed “in the coming hours”, it expects him to still be called up for the match this weekend.
However, the Moroccan may be rested with the Bianconeri’s forthcoming commitments in mind, possibly opening the door to Daniele Rugani.
