Massimiliano Allegri: Paul Pogba to be assessed ahead of Real game


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says midfielder Paul Pogba will be assessed in the coming days ahead of Wednesday's Champions League game against Real Madrid.

The Frenchman made his return after almost two months on the sidelines and scored against Cagliari in today's 1-1 draw.

And the Italian says there is a possibility for the 22-year-old to be in the starting line-up at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

"It's a shame for the way we conceded and the fact we didn't win," Allegri told Sky Sport Italy.

"But it wasn't easy, many players were out for a long time like [Paul] Pogba who was out for 55 days. He did well, in all fairness everyone did well, it's just a shame that we failed to win.

"We will now assess him [Pogba] ahead of Wednesday's game [against Real Madrid]. But he worked well in mid-week, he's young and extremely strong.

"We will also assess the rest of the squad because there's always the possibility of extra time.

"I don't know what formation [Carlo] Ancelotti will opt for, for sure is that it will be a very difficult game. We have to score else it will be very difficult [to qualify for the final]."
