Massimiliano Allegri: Injury update on Pirlo, Evra, Ogbonna and Barzagli


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says his players should not underestimate Lazio ahead of Saturday's game at the Olimpico Stadium.

The Bianconeri face Stefano Pioli's side as Serie A leaders but Allegri says the Biancocelesti are strong enough to fight for a top-three finish this season.

"Lazio is a strong team," Allegri said on Friday.

"First of all they are very well coached, they are organised, physical and angry after they lost their last game [against Empoli].

"They can aim for the third place so for us it will be a very difficult game. They also possess a number of quality players like Candreva, Mauri, Keita, Dordjevic, Klose, so we have to be ready because it will not be easy, it will not be easy at all."

Asked to give a full update on injuries, Allegri added: "Romulo has to deal with a groin injury on a regular basis, there are days where the problem causes more discomfort.

"We will assess him today to understand if he's fit for the game.

"As for the rest, Evra is almost recovered, he will be back in the group on Sunday so he will surely - together with Asamoah - be available for Wednesday's game [against Malmo].

"We also hope to have Caceres back after the game against Torino [on November 30].

"Ogbonna will join the group in mid-week but Barzagli is still not training with the rest of the group. Pirlo is training with the group and is available for tomorrow's game.

"Vidal came back [from international duty] on Thursday night, he's fit and available. Marrone will join the group after the game against Torino."
