    Juventus lose Bonucci for Chievo clash

    Juventus will be without defender Leonardo Bonucci for Sunday’s trip to Chievo. The Italian international has picked up a thigh injury and his condition is being monitored on a daily basis. Midfielder Claudio Marchiso also missed training today due in influenza but is expected to be available for the weekend. 
    After a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to Lyon in the Champions League on Wednesday night, the bianconeri will be anxious to maintain their four point lead at the top of Serie A over second-placed Roma who entertain Bologna at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday evening.
    Coach Massimo Allegri will be looking for maximum points out of the next three games that the Old Lady will be expected to win; after Sunday they host Pescara in Turin followed by a trip to Genoa which will complete their November programme. December holds a much stiffer test with the derby against Torino and a fixture against Roma.
