Massimiliano Allegri on Internazionale and injuries


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says a number of key players will not feature against Internazionale on Saturday.

Having reached the final of the Champions League and with a key game against Lazio coming up in the Italian Cup, Allegri confirmed that Carlos Tevez, Andrea Pirlo, Gianluigi Buffon, Patrice Evra and Arturo Vidal will all be rested.

"Tomorrow at the San Siro stadium we will have an almost-full squad," Allegri said.

"At the moment we only have [Martin] Caceres on the sidelines, all other players are available.

"It's true that right now the morale is very high but let's not forget that we have another very important objective to play for on Wednesday against Lazio, a trophy Juventus last won twenty years ago.

"[Claudio] Marchisio and [Alvaro] Morata are suspended but tomorrow's game is still important because it's always Juventus-Internazionale after all.

"[Carlos] Tevez, [Andrea] Pirlo, [Gianluigi] Buffon, [Patrice] Evra and [Arturo] Vidal will not travel.

"[But] now that all players are available, there will be a possibility for those who didn't feature regularly to play more.

"[Kwadwo] Asamoah will be back tomorrow even if he's not in the Champions League squad. It's important to assess his fitness level.

"Same goes for Romulo. We have a number of players who were sidelined for a long time so these are the games where they can feature.

"We then have Wednesday's game [against Lazio] and two more [in the Serie A], all important games ahead of [the Champions League final on June 6]."
