Dybala out of Napoli clash?

According to reports in Italy, Juventus forward Paulo Dybala could not even sit on the bench against Napoli today.

Juventus host the Partenopei at the Allianz Stadium in the reverse fixture from matchday 3.

It kicks off at 17.45 GMT.

Paulo Dybala was supposed to return to action for the first time in three months, but Calciomercato.com is now reporting the Argentinean still feels pain in his knee and could miss the match.

The club suspended and fined Dybala after taking part in a party organized by Weston McKennie last week.

However, he had returned to training on Sunday, and Andrea Pirlo said Dybala would be eligible to play today.

“Paulo is fine. He has trained with the group and has resumed kicking the ball,” he said. “He is back at my disposal, and I hope to have him ready to play tomorrow,” the coach said in his pre-match press conference yesterday.

“It’s normal that he doesn’t have 90 minutes in his legs, but having him available for us already means a lot.”

Juventus usually release their squad list hours before the kick-off, but they have failed to announce the available players for the Napoli clash so far today.
