Juventus coach Allegri: "Dybala & Rugani will play, Matuidi is out"

Juventus coach Max Allegri held a press conference ahead of tomorrow's Serie A fixture against Udinese.

“Whenever we’ve faced Udinese in the past, it’s almost always come at crucial moments in the season. Tomorrow’s match is no different: Udinese are on the hunt for points, while we need to win and make sure that we play in a far more careful manner than usual. We’ve been scoring more goals this term, but also conceding more often, so that is something we must improve on. Udinese, meanwhile, are a physical side, who also have some very technical and talented individuals in the team.”

"Dybala is in good shape, both physically and mentally, and he will play tomorrow. The same goes for Buffon, whilst Chiellini is 99% certain to play too. Rugani comes back into my line-up, Marchisio is called up to the squad, and I’ll decide on Douglas Costa’s involvement tomorrow" Allegri continued.

The Bianconeri coach confirmed that Matuidi "is out after picking up a strain in his flexor muscles during today’s training session. Meanwhile, I don’t believe that Sturaro has anything serious, but we’ll evaluate his condition over the next days. De Sciglio will be back training with the team on Monday, Howedes is making good progress too, and Pjaca will be able to get minutes under his belt with the Primavera over the coming weeks."

Allegri then shifted attention to tonight's big match clash at the Stadio San Paolo in Naples when Napoli host Inter stating that both teams "are ahead of us, and are playing excellently at the moment. I hope that they play out a draw tonight, even if the most important thing is that we make sure we win our own match this weekend."

"We have to watch out for Roma, Milan and Lazio too, even if I believe that it will ultimately be a three-horse race for the Scudetto between ourselves, Napoli and Inter" Allegri concluded.
