Juventus injury update ahead of Porto clash

Andrea Pirlo hopes Giorgio Chiellini and Matthijs de Ligt will recover in time to face Porto on Tuesday, while Leonardo Bonucci and Arthur could start the game.

Juventus are facing an injury crisis with Giorgio Chiellini, Matthijs de Ligt and Paulo Dybala injured, while Rodrigo Bentancur tested positive for COVID.

Leonardo Bonucci and Arthur are recovering their best fitness and both came off the bench in the second half of Saturday’s Allianz Stadium clash against Lazio.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, they are both expected to start against Porto on Tuesday.

Pirlo hopes Chiellini and De Ligt will also be available, while Danilo will miss the game, serving a one-match ban.

Alvaro Morata and Cristiano Ronaldo are expected to start upfront against the Portuguese side.

The Spaniard scored a brace in Juventus’ 3-1 win over Lazio last night.

The Old Lady lost the first leg 2-1 at the Stadio Do Dragao two weeks ago.
