Massimiliano Allegri ahead of Monaco, says Vidal is fit to start


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says midfielder Arturo Vidal is fit to start in tomorrow's Champions League game against Monaco.

The Chile international was a major doubt after suffering acute tonsillitis according to the Italian club but will be in the squad to face the French giants on Wednesday night.

"Anything can happen [tomorrow], we have a small advantage but to qualify we have to score," Allegri said.

"We have to be careful, we know Monaco, we know their characteristics, they are complicated to play against, they defend well and possess strong players in the offensive department.

"It will be a difficult game and small details could make a difference tomorrow.

"I'm yet to decide the starting line-up and formation. I still have a full morning [on Wednesday] to assess the situation. The players who will be sitting on the bench will play an important role.

"[Simone] Pepe is fit, he is available, I don't think he will be a regular tomorrow but he is an important player for Juventus.

"[Arturo] Vidal is also fit, he trained with the rest of the squad today and is available to play."
