According to reports by Sky Sports, Stefano Sturaro is the favourite over Rodrigo Bentancur to replace the injured Blaise Matuidi in tomorrow’s match against Tottenham.

When talking to the press today ahead of the highly anticipated Champions League Round of 16 tie against English outfit Tottenham, Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri admitted that Stefano Sturaro has more features that are similar to those Blaise Matuidi possesses than Rodrigo Bentancur does. As a result of Allegri saying this, it has since been reported by Sky Sports that Sturaro will start in place of the injured French International in tomorrow’s huge game.

Sturaro will have big boots to fill if the Italian International does start as Matuidi has been one of Juventus’ stand out performers this season and the former Paris Saint-Germain midfielder has been a driving force in Juventus’ midfield alongside Miralem Pjanić.
