Going into the first game of the season, Massimiliano Allegri has decided to call up twenty-two players for Juventus’ clash against Udinese. Here is the latest news surrounding the team.

The twenty-two players that have been called up are as follows:

Goalkeepers: 

1- Gianlugi Buffon

25- Neto

34- Rubinho

Defenders: 

2- Mauricio Isla

3- Giorgio Chiellini

4- Martin Caceres

12- Alex Sandro

15- Andrea Barzagli

19- Leonardo Bonucci

24- Daniele Rugani

26- Stephan Lichtsteiner

33- Patrice Evra

Midfielders: 

10- Paul Pogba

20- Simone Padoin

27- Stefano Sturaro

34- Roberto Pereyra

40- Mattia Vitale

Forwards: 

7- Simone Zaza

11- Kingsley Coman

14- Fernando Llorente

17- Mario Mandzukic

21-Paulo Dybala

Suspensions: n/a

Injuries: Alvaro Morata, Claudio Marchisio, Sami Khedira, Kwadwo Asamoah.

Giorgio Chiellini is a major doubt going into tomorrow’s game as he has just returned from injury. In all likelihood, he will not feature in tomorrow’s game because he is still struggling with a knock.

Probable lineup: 

Due to the many injuries in the midfield, Massimiliano Allegri will likely opt for the 3-5-2 formation. The reliable Simone Padoin is expected to act as the side’s regista while being flanked by Paul Pogba and Stefano Sturaro. In defense, the same trio that started in the Supercoppa against Lazio are currently favorites to start. As it was stated previously, Chiellini is not expected to play a part. In attack, the former Milan boss has decided to go with a new-look partnership as Dybala and Mandzukic will get the nod. The duo previously played together in the Supercoppa earlier in the month and both got their names on the score-sheet.
