Andrea Pirlo will reportedly be fit to return for Juventus in Wednesday’s Champions League second leg.
It was revealed this week that the midfielder, who is battling a thigh injury, would undergo tests to see whether he’d be able to make the trip to Germany to face Borussia Dortmund.
This morning La Stampa reports that the Italian international has come through those tests, and should be in contention to play at Westfalenstadion.
The newspaper reports that Pirlo has no pain from his injury, and is now just attempting to demonstrate that his fitness is at the proper level to play in the match.
It’s not thought that the former Milan man will play any part in tomorrow’s trip to Palermo, but it looks increasingly likely the regista will play some part in the Champions League Last 16 clash.
Tuttosport echoes these reports, claiming that Pirlo told his teammates, ‘I’ll be there’ in regard to the Dortmund game.
