Pirlo's Juventus revert to three?

Andrea Pirlo is reportedly planning a return to the three-man defence at Juventus, potentially with Alex Sandro and Danilo in more central roles.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Pirlo is open to switching back to the system that had proved so successful under Antonio Conte and at times also Max Allegri.

Maurizio Sarri’s 4-3-3 system didn’t work as well as it could’ve done, especially at the back, where the Bianconeri conceded a massive 43 Serie A goals.

Demiral back for Juve

Juventus defender Merih Demiral has been called up for the first time in six months to face former club Sassuolo.

Demiral damaged his ACL during Juve’s 2-1 win at Roma in January, which also saw Nicolo Zaniolo suffer the same injury.

However, the 22-year-old has been passed fit to make his comeback against Sassuolo, where he spent the second half of last season.

Despite that and Leonardo Bonucci struggling with a heel problem, it is unlikely the Turk will be thrown straight back into the fold.
