Caceres and Anelka sidelined

Martin Caceres and Nicolas Anelka are doubts for Juventus’ game at Napoli on Friday because of fitness issues.

The two players skipped training at Vinovo on Wednesday as they continue to struggle with persistent back pain problems.

Training will resume on Thursday afternoon after boss Antonio Conte has spoken to journalists ahead of the big Scudetto tie.

Defender Caceres has appeared in 14 League games this season and has stood in for Giorgio Chiellini while he has been absent. The latter should be available for the San Paolo showdown.

Anelka, a striker, joined the club in January from Shanghai Shenhua. The 33-year-old has only made one 23-minute substitute appearance in Serie A so far.
