Juventus Handed Major Fitness Boost Ahead of Milan Game

Juventus have been handed a massive fitness boost ahead of their mouth-watering Serie A clash against leaders Milan on Sunday night. According to Tuttomercatoweb, Federico Chiesa has returned to training after a fortnight on the sidelines and could make the matchday squad. 

Chiesa had to skip the Derby di Torino before the international break due to injury, with Juventus running out 2-0 victors in his absence. The 25-year-old forward received the national team call-up. But he had to withdraw from the Italy squad before the Malta game to accelerate his recovery. 

Although initial predictions were not encouraging, Chiesa could return to the fold this weekend. He has trained separately from the rest of the group to improve his fitness these past few days. After welcoming Dusan Vlahovic back to the team, the Italian’s potential comeback would be a huge plus for Juventus. 

Massimiliano Allegri’s men have a score to settle at the San Siro. Juventus lost both Serie A matches against Milan last season without scoring. In fact, they’ve drawn a blank in three consecutive league encounters against Rossoneri. That highlights the importance of having their star forwards fit for this contest.

Chiesa and Vlahovic have been in scintillating form this season. They’ve scored four goals apiece, accounting for 57% of Juve’s Serie A total (8/14). If Juventus were to stand a chance against high-flying Milan, Allegri’s formidable attacking tandem must beat the clock.
