The Bianconeri were worried about duo after the 3-3 draw with Sassuolo on Wednesday, but Maurizio Sarri can breathe after learning that none of them had suffered a serious setback.

Chiellini, who suffered a knee injury in the first game of the season, had to come off at half-time against the Neroverdi.

“The Bianconeri immediately started to work again, in view of Monday’s match at the Allianz Stadium against Lazio,” Juventus wrote in their official report.

“The menu, as always in a ‘day after, provided for recovery and restitution for the players who played last night, while the rest of the team faced personalised work.

“Bentancur and Chiellini underwent scans at the J Medical this morning, that excluded muscle injuries. Tomorrow, the team will rest. They will return to the pitch for a training session at Saturday afternoon.”
