Chiesa Called Up for the First Time in Nine Months

Federico Chiesa has been inserted in the squad list to face PSG Wednesday and could potentially make his return after nearly ten months on the shelf because of an ACL tear. Coach Massimiliano Allegri voiced concerns about his readiness in the pre-game presser, but he reversed course afterward. The winger took part in the final practice along with his teammates.

The decision might come from the fact that Juventus lost another offensive player. Moise Kean will be unavailable for their final Champions League game of the season due to discomfort in his right thigh. The tests revealed an inflammation on a previous scar on the rectus femoris muscle. He will be in doubt for the fixture versus Inter Sunday as well, TuttoSport relays.

With Dusan Vlahovic, Angel Di Maria, and Samuel Iling-Junior all sidelined, Chiesa will be the only attacker on the bench besides Matias Soulé. He originally got hurt on January 9th during a game against Roma. He had reconstructive knee surgery in Innsbruck two weeks later. According to the publication, the Italian star might make just a token appearance on the bench without featuring.

With just one pure center-forward available, Arkadiusz Milik, the Bianconeri will likely tweak their scheme and go with a 3-5-1-1, with Fabio Miretti as a no.10 and Nicolò Fagioli in the midfield. Federico Gatti and Daniele Rugani are dueling to replace Danilo and complete the backline. Gleison Bremer and Di Maria are out for this one but should return versus the Nerazzurri, having resumed training fully.
