Back problem for Higuain

Juventus could be without Gonzalo Higuain for this weekend’s trip to SPAL, as he skipped training today with back pain.

Pipita is suffering from lumbago, a condition that flares up occasionally, and a statement from the Bianconeri medical staff confirmed he will be monitored on a daily basis.

Miralem Pjanic is also a major doubt for the SPAL game after limping off with a muscular injury in the 2-0 victory over Brescia.

Adrien Rabiot is also training separately and goalkeeper Carlo Pinsoglio has flu symptoms.

Sami Khedira and Federico Bernardeschi returned to training this week, but Douglas Costa and Merih Demiral are still long-term absentees, with Leonardo Bonucci suspended.
