Massimiliano Allegri ahead of Empoli, gives full injury update


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says midfielder Andrea Pirlo will miss games against Empoli and Fiorentina in mid-week.

The 35-year-old suffered a calf injury last month that kept him out of action since February 24 but could be back in the squad to face Parma, away from home, next week.

Midfielders Paul Pogba and Claudio Marchisio are also out of tomorrow's game against Empoli.

"Empoli is doing well [this season]," Allegri said.

"They registered eight consecutive positive results so we have to be focused ahead of the first game [after the international break]. There are ten games to go so we still need points to be win the title.

"There are a number of doubts over the starting line-up.

"The last two to come back from international duty, [Carlos] Tevez and [Roberto] Pereyra, arrived yesterday so today I will assess the fitness level of the two.

"We only have one training session before the game and that will help me understand the fitness level of all the players.

"[As for injuries, Andrea] Pirlo will not be available for tomorrow's game and will probably also miss Tuesday's game [against Fiorentina].

"[Paul] Pogba will be out for some time. But he's only 22 so hopefully he can recover earlier than expected.

"[Kwadwo] Asamoah is responding well to treatment, he could be an asset towards the end of the season.

"Romulo will be back from Brazil next week, we hope to have him available although he's been out for a very long time.

"[Martin] Caceres is out and will not be available before next season. He underwent two surgeries, shoulder and ankle, so it would be very optimistic to expect him back this season.

"[Claudio] Marchisio will be back next week."
