Allegri: “Dybala Could Start Against Atalanta”

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri said that Paulo Dybala could start in the club’s Serie A fixture against Atalanta tomorrow.

The Argentine international missed the Bianconeri’s match against Lazio last weekend but played a few minutes in their 4-0 defeat against Chelsea. Allegri said that Dybala could start against Atalanta while Giorgio Chiellini and Federico Bernardeschi are available for the fixture.

The Juve boss told in his pre-match press conference: “Giorgio Chiellini and Federico Bernardeschi will be available tomorrow, Mattia De Sciglio will only be available on Tuesday, while Aaron Ramsey still has a problem with his flexor. Tomorrow I will make my choices, at this moment we are going ahead with a four-man defense.

“Paulo Dybala is in good condition, and I think he may start tomorrow. Dejan Kulusevski is a little better, he was bothered by some pain in his tooth, we will see how he is.

Dybala has had a decent start to the season, amassing six goals and four assists in 12 matches across all competitions so far. The Argentine’s absence was felt against Chelsea and him starting against Atalanta is a big boost for Juve.

The Bianconeri are currently eighth in the Serie A table but a victory over La Dea would narrow the gap between them and the top four.
