Peluso debut Juve call

Federico Peluso could make his Juventus debut against Sampdoria on Sunday, but Kwadwo Asamoah has left for African Cup of Nations duty.

The Bianconeri named their squad for tomorrow’s Serie A game, which includes defender Peluso just days after completing his transfer from Atalanta.

Asamoah is not included, as he is working with Ghana to prepare for the African Cup of Nations.

Giorgio Chiellini, Nicklas Bendtner and Simone Pepe are long-term injury absentees.

Juventus squad for Sampdoria: Buffon, Storari, Branescu; Caceres, De Ceglie, Peluso, Bonucci, Barzagli, Marrone; Pogba, Marchisio, Padoin, Pirlo, Vidal, Giaccherini, Isla; Vucinic, Giovinco, Quagliarella, Matri
