Juventus to rest Tevez

Juventus Coach Massimiliano Allegri will rest Carlos Tevez for the Bianconeri’s trip to Empoli, according to reports.

The Argentinean has been in top form for the Old Lady this season, with eight goals in 12 games.

However, The Apache hasn't found the back of the net since the win over Roma on October 5 and Tuttosport believes that the striker will be rested ahead of a Champions League clash with Olympiacos.

The former Manchester United man hasn’t been rested since Cesena visited Juventus Stadium on September 24, and the newspaper believes that Allegri is keen to have Tevez in top condition when the Greeks visit Turin for what is a do-or-die game for the Bianconeri after back-to-back Champions League defeats.

The Turin-based sports daily reports that Sebastian Giovinco is the man being lined-up to replace Tevez for Old Lady’s trip to Tuscany this weekend.

With the ‘Atomic Ant’ having played only 110 minutes in all competitions this season, the diminutive forward is seen as fresher and will be handed a starting berth as he faces his former side.
