Andrea Barzagli looks set to start for Juventus in tomorrow’s Supercoppa Italiana, as Coach Max Allegri deploys a 3-5-2 shape.
The Bianconeri will take on Coppa Italia runners-up Lazio in China tomorrow, in the first competitive match of the Italian season.
The central defender had been an injury doubt in the build-up to the match, but has assured fans that he is fully recovered.
Following today’s final training session in Shaghai, it appears Allegri will revert to a 3-5-2 system, with Barzagli playing alongside Leonardo Bonucci and Martin Caceres.
At the other end of the field, Mario Mandzukic and Paulo Dybala are likely to play in attack, with Alvaro Morata ruled out with injury.
Probable Juventus team to face Lazio: Buffon; Caceres, Bonucci, Barzagli; Lichtsteiner, Pogba, Marchisio, Sturaro; Mandzukic, Dybala
