Bentancur can play for Juventus

Rodrigo Bentancur is in the Juventus squad against Cagliari this evening, despite the COVID-19 outbreak in Uruguay.

It kicks off at 19.45 GMT, click here for a match preview.

The Sardinians have lost Diego Godin to Coronavirus and left his Uruguay teammate Nahitan Nandez at home as a precaution.

However, Bentancur has had three swabs all test negative, so he is given the all-clear to play for Juventus.

Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini and Aaron Ramsey are injured, so Matthijs de Ligt is expected to make his first appearance since shoulder surgery in August.

Alex Sandro is also in the squad for the first time this season, but coach Andrea Pirlo added another new name to the side, 21-year-old right-back Alessandro Di Pardo.

Juventus squad for Cagliari: Szczesny, Buffon, Pinsoglio; De Ligt, Alex Sandro, Danilo, Cuadrado, Demiral, Di Pardo, Frabotta; Chiesa, Rabiot, McKennie, Arthur, Bentancur, Bernardeschi, Portanova, Kulusevski; Ronaldo, Dybala, Morata, Vrioni
