Following tests on Matthijs de Ligt, an injury has been ruled out, giving Juventus a big boost. During the warm-up for Juventus’ match against Spezia yesterday, the Dutchman complained of pain. He chose to sit out the game, forcing the club to make a last-minute lineup change.
In his absence, they brought in Alex Sandro to partner Merih Demiral, and both players contributed to Bianconeri’s clean sheet.
With Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini both out with injuries, he is one of the club’s main players and arguably the best defender available at the moment.
The Bianconeri’s next two games are against Lazio and FC Porto, both of which they must win to keep their Serie A and Champions League hopes alive.
Calciomercato obtained a statement from the club about his fitness, which reads:
“After a 3-0 victory over Spezia in which Alvaro Morata, Federico Chiesa, and Cristiano Ronaldo scored goals, the Bianconeri are back on the field this morning to begin preparations for the next match.
Juventus will host Simone Inzaghi’s Lazio in the match true for the twenty-sixth matchday at the Allianz Stadium (kick-off at 20.45) and thus close another mini-cycle of three games in a week before concentrating on the return of the second round of the Champions League final against Porto.
The squad, therefore, met this morning at the Training Center under the instructions of Coach Andrea Pirlo to better prepare for the match against the Biancocelesti, and the session was differentiated, as is customary on the day of the post-match, with unloading for those who had played the night before, physical practice, and technical-tactical exercises for the rest of the party.
The bianconeri will reconvene at the JTC in the morning for a new day of work tomorrow. Matthijs De Ligt’s condition will be tracked day by day following today’s tests at J | Medical, which ruled out muscle injuries.”
