Chiellini hopes to face Milan

Juventus stopper Giorgio Chiellini is keeping his fingers crossed that he’ll be fit enough to take on Milan on Sunday.

The defender has had an injury-plagued campaign and he missed the 2-0 win at Lazio on Monday with ankle problems.

“I’m felling better,” he stated. “And I’m certainly hoping that I will be available to face Milan. We’ll just have to see what happens.”

The 28-year-old has appeared in just 18 League games for the Old Lady so far this season. He missed only four Serie A games last term.

Juventus need just seven points from their last six games to win their second consecutive championship.
