Juventus' injury crisis continues

Juventus forward Alvaro Morata didn’t train yesterday, as the injury crisis continues for Andrea Pirlo.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reports Juan Cuadrado hopes to be back against Spezia, while Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini aim for the big game against Lazio.

Paulo Dybala reportedly travelled to Barcelona for a consultation with knee specialist Ramon Cugat and his return is still uncertain.

Juventus are trying to avoid an intervention for Arthur Melo too, as the Brazilian midfielder struggles with a leg injury and will carry out conservative therapy until the beginning of next week.

The news of Morata skipping training yesterday was a further blow for Pirlo, but the Spanish striker has been struggling in recent weeks and still needs time to recover fully.

La Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Luca Bianchin confirmed he will be re-evaluated but is ‘not expected to play’ against Hellas Verona this weekend.
