Positive injury updates for Sarri

Juventus should have Gonzalo Higuain back in contention ahead of the first leg against Olympique Lyonnais, whilst Douglas Costa could make it for Inter.

The Argentine forward Higuain had to sit out against SPAL in Serie A last weekend but was back in training yesterday and Sky Sport Italia reports that Maurizio Sarri should have him at his disposal ahead of the important fixture in France.

The 31-year-old struggled with pain in his lower back but has trained regularly with his teammates this week.

The broadcaster reveals that Miralem Pjanic has recovered from his muscle injury he picked up against Brescia, whilst Sami Khedira is back after his operation in the knee.

The Brazilian winger Douglas Costa also participated partially in yesterday’s session and will have to sit out against Lyon, but Sky Sport Italia claims he could be in contention for the big match against Inter on Sunday.

The battle between the two title contenders will be carried out behind closed doors, as Serie A announced that the areas affected by the coronavirus outbreak will only be able to carry on without spectators this weekend.
