The break for the national teams gives the opportunity to recover those who were stopped. Locatelli, Rabiot and Alex Sandro expected in the group. And for Szczesny it’s time to take back the posts
Today Juventus returns to training at Continassa, without the 14 players called up in the various national teams, from the Italians Bonucci and Gatti to the Brazilians Danilo and Bremer (at the first call with the Seleçao). Max Allegri will thus find himself with few close friends, also because among those who have not left for retreats around the world there is a large number of injured players. Leaving aside the long-term patients Kaio Jorge, Aké, Pogba and Chiesa, the break will be an opportunity to recover Manuel Locatelli, Adrien Rabiot and Alex Sandro. For all three, the goal is to be skilled and enlisted on Sunday 2 October for the match against Bologna, at the return of the championship. An appointment that Juve absolutely cannot fail, net of absences, including the suspended Di Maria. Locatelli missed Salernitana, Benfica and Monza due to muscle fatigue and his recovery seems obvious. Situation similar to that of Alex Sandro, who had stopped due to a problem with his left thigh flexor. Rabiot, on the other hand, is plagued by a pain in his calf, which will hopefully go away during the break.
Compared to the away match in Monza, Allegri should still have a larger group of players available. In addition to the possible return of Locatelli, Rabiot and Alex Sandro, Juan Cuadrado and Arek Milik will return, disqualified in the last match before the break. Wojciech Szczesny could also be seen in goal against Bologna: the goalkeeper only returned to the bench at Monza, also to reward Mattia Perin’s excellent start to the season, but it is likely that on his return from Poland, where he joined his national team , can get back the holder’s gallons. Szczesny has just played 133 minutes this season, but it must also be said that the goalkeeper has been the least of Juve’s problems so far. Indeed, Perin was an added value at the start of the championship.
All of this, of course, making the best wishes for any stop in the national team. In this regard, the situation of Gleison Bremer should be monitored, who yesterday spoke for the first time as a defender of Brazil, alongside coach Tite in the conference: “Danilo and Alex Sandro introduced me to Juventus – he said -, but even here for me it is the first time. I want to win a place for the World Championship in Qatar and I have 50 days to do so ». Bremer has gritted his teeth in recent weeks, despite a discomfort below his left knee which has inevitably limited his recent performances. The appeal of the Seleçao, however, was too strong to give up and Juve hopes that with the enthusiasm for the first call-up in verdeoro the small physical problem of the Brazilian central will disappear. Up to now Bremer has been the only Juventus player starting from 1 ‘.
