Pessina available against Juventus

Atalanta announce that Matteo Pessina has recovered from COVID-19 and is available to face Juventus on Sunday.

The showdown for third place is on Sunday afternoon at 14.00 UK time (13.00 GMT).

Pessina was one of several players who contracted the Coronavirus while on international duty with Italy in their games against Bulgaria and Lithuania.

He missed last week’s victory over Fiorentina, but a statement from Atalanta confirms the midfielder tested negative.

Pessina has been released from quarantine restrictions and already underwent his physical test this afternoon.

He is expected to resume training tomorrow, so will be available for Sunday’s match against Juventus.

Leonardo Bonucci was in the same situation and he too has now resumed training.
