Juventus, Pjanic in group: with Atalanta there will be. Ronaldo trains apart


TURIN – The good news is that in all likelihood the 'control unit' of Sarri's Juventus will be, even against Atalanta, Miralem Pjanic. The good news coming from the Continassa infirmary bodes well for Sarri: the Bosnian director, stopped during Bosnia-Italy, has partially trained with the group, as announced by the same company. Three days after the match at the Gewiss Stadium, the hopes of seeing Pjanic on the pitch are many: swept away the doubts of the first hour.

Midfield in progress

Within a training session the 'borsino' of the midfield has radically changed: Matuidi's recovery is now complete, the cartilaginous fracture at the tenth rib remedied by Milan is behind him and the Frenchman has trained for the whole session together with his team-mates. No doubt about his presence on the pitch against Atalanta, especially as his main competitor, Adrien Rabiot, was forced to slow down due to a slight fatigue in his left adductor. The midfielder who arrived in the summer still does not prove to be very lucky: what seemed like an almost titular jersey, given Matuidi's problem and the possibility of working for ten days at the Continassa, has turned into a big question mark. His presence in Bergamo is in strong doubt and even if he manages to recover, he will hardly play from the first minute.

Alex Sandro under observation

Alex Sandro's injury, remedied in the challenge between Brazil and Argentina, is less serious than expected. The exams to which the Brazilian was subjected on his return from commitments with the Selecao showed a significant improvement in the problem to the left adductor. Difficult to imagine Alex Sandro on the pitch on Saturday at 3pm in Bergamo, more likely to try everything to have him available on Tuesday at the Juventus Stadium with Atletico Madrid, a challenge worth the first place in the Champions League group stage.

Ronaldo aside

Cristiano Ronaldo instead trained separately, carrying out a personalized program to avoid overloading the knee that has plagued him in recent weeks and from which, according to official reconstructions, nervousness resulted in protest after the replacement. Controversies which, in any case, are now behind them, weakened by time, by the dialogue that took place yesterday with Sarri and which will be definitively swept away by the dinner that the Portuguese attacker intends to offer to his companions. A tombstone on a case that has in any case highlighted the character of Sarri and recharged Ronaldo: on Saturday there will be a field trial against one of the teams in the best shape of this championship start.
