Allegri: Juventus Can Cope With Dybala Absence
Massimiliano Allegri is confident Juventus can cope with the absences of Paulo Dybala, Giorgio Chiellini and Claudio Marchisio ahead of their Champions League last-16 second-leg tie against Bayern Munich on Wednesday.
Juventus fought back to play a 2-2 draw against Bayern in the first leg at Turin.
And Allegri is certain they can cope with the absence of the trio.
Nevertheless, Allegri is optimistic about his side’s chances of making it through.
“Our squad is capable of dealing with injuries. It’s not important who plays, but how they play,” Allegri said at a news conference on Tuesday.
“Whoever crosses the white line for us will put in a great display. Dybala does not have any torn muscles, but I decided to leave him at home because I didn’t want to risk him.
“We’ll decide [on Wednesday] about Mario Mandzukic. He trained with the team [on Tuesday] and is in good shape.
“‘Alvaro Morata’s condition is improving, he’s in great shape. It would have been tough for me to leave him out.
“I still haven’t decided on my starting XI.”
