Pessina won't be back in time for Juve

Atalanta forward Matteo Pessina will almost certainly miss the Serie A game against Juventus on Sunday.

L’Eco di Bergamo reports the attacking midfielder will not be back in time to face the Bianconeri this weekend.

The Italy international tested positive for coronavirus and the quarantine, in the event of two negative tests, would end the night before the big game this weekend.

The newspaper claims it would be too late for Pessina, who missed the 3-2 win over Fiorentina last time.

Atalanta are still without injured Hans Hateboer and Cristian Romero, on loan from the Old Lady, will not be able to face his former club.

The centre-back was booked for the 10th time in Serie A during the match against the Viola and must sit out this weekend.
