Luciano Spalletti has issued the final squad list for the Ukraine game, where Italy will need to avoid losing to finish second and qualify for Euro 2024 directly without going through the playoff. The most notable exclusion is Domenico Berardi, who started against North Macedonia but had an underwhelming performance.
Davide Calabria was set to make his Italy return, but he bowed out after suffering a minor thigh problem against Lecce. Luciano Spalletti has called up two right-backs, Giovanni Di Lorenzo and Matteo Darmian. The former has to serve a disqualification in Friday’s game versus North Macedonia.
Juventus won’t have Adrien Rabiot for the game versus Cagliari. The midfielder picked up his fifth yellow card in the victory over Fiorentina, triggering a one-match suspension. That’ll leave the midfield highly depleted for the next bout. On the other hand, he’ll be available for the pivotal clash with Inter.
Stadio Artemio Franchi is the venue as Fiorentina and Juventus go head-to-head in a tasty-looking Serie A showdown on Sunday evening. Let's look at our match preview for this contest.
Giovanni Bia, the agent of Andrea Cambiaso, confirmed that Milan inquired about his client while they were searching for a deputy left-back last summer: “A pair of Italian teams were after him in the past window. The Rossoneri came forward, and three or four Premier League sides were very interested."
Andrea Cambiaso decided the Verona contest at the death with a tap-in for his first Juventus goal. His agent Giovanni Dia disclosed that the Bianconeri pipped Inter at the post to sign him in 2022 in an interview. “Federico Cherubini and Giovanni Manna believed in him a lot."
Juventus build on a morale-bolstering win at Milan last weekend with a nerve-shredding 1-0 home victory over bottom-half Hellas Verona on Saturday night. It should've been another day in the office for Bianconeri, but it turned out to be a dramatic contest, largely thanks to the visitors' stubborn defensive approach.
Massimiliano Allegri still wants to see his side improve after a last-gasp 1-0 home victory over Hellas Verona took Juventus to the top of Serie A. Saturday's encounter at the Allianz Stadium, highlighted by VAR controversy, witnessed dramatic scenes deep into stoppages.
Juventus left it late to beat a downtrodden Hellas Verona side at the Allianz Stadium on Saturday night. Andrea Cambiaso's last-gasp winner has fired Bianconeri to the top of the Serie A standings, at least until tomorrow.
Andrea Cambiaso convinced the Juventus brass during the friendlies and has very strong chances to stay put unless a suitor comes over the top with a large offer. His agent Giovanni Bia addressed his future in an interview: “The Bianconeri turned down multiple bids for him."
After inquiring about Luca Pellegrini, Milan also asked Juventus about Andrea Cambiaso. However, they were met with a lofty request as the Bianconeri intend to keep the player. They don’t want to loan him out again and demanded €20M. The Rossoneri are looking for a new deputy left-back.
Juventus have laid eyes on Fabiano Parisi, but they need a few pieces to fit into the right places before kicking their chase into high gear. In addition, Empoli already recorded a major profit by selling Guglielmo Vicario to Tottenham and are holding firm on their demands.
