"Far behind Morata" Allegri provides injury update on Dybala

Sat 16 October 2021 | 11:41

The Bianconeri forward was injured in his side’s game against Sampdoria earlier this month.

Juventus are preparing themselves to face Roma in their next Serie A game on Sunday. The Bianconeri managed to bounce back from their underwhelming start to the season by winning three matches in a row before the international break. Massimiliano Allegri’s side are hoping to continue their good form in the coming weeks. However, with his South American players arriving a day before the game, the Italian coach admits he is not sure about the lineup yet.

“Clear ideas are big words,”

Allegri told a press conference.

“Today, for the first time, I see the whole team together.

“The Europeans returned between Wednesday and Thursday, while the South Americans arrived yesterday. Let’s see what we’ll do. I’ll decide in the morning.

“Juventus vs. Roma is always a great match where there has often been controversy. There’s [Jose] Mourinho, who has given them character. They are ahead of us, and we must score points to not fall behind the best in the championship.

“We need to prepare well and turn the switch back on immediately after the break.”

Asked about the injuries of Alvaro Morata and Paulo Dybala, Allegri responded:

“Morata will train with the team today, but it depends on the risks we can take with his availability,

“If not, we risk nullifying the work done by the doctors.

“Dybala, absolutely not. He’s far behind Morata. During the week I was reading that Dybala can play against Roma… Maybe the return leg.

“I think he will be available within a week, no more than 10 days.”

The injuries of Morata and Dybala will provide Moise Kean with a chance to appear in Juve’s attacking line for their upcoming game. 

After their match against the Giallorossi, Juventus will face Zenit Saint Petersburg in their next Champions League game on Wednesday.
