With just three points left in fifth-placed Napoli, Juventus have yet to secure a place in the Champions League, the only goal left for the Old Lady this season, with the exception of the Coppa Italia Final and Andrea Pirlo's crucial men's game coming on Sunday: A match against Atalanta, a point behind Juventus.
Of particular concern to the Italian strategist is that Cristiano Ronaldo will not be ready for the game and Federico Bernardeschi who came out with Covid-19, Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata are the only key players to be available for Pirlo on Sunday.
“We have an important person who is not at work. Cristiano will not be taking part in the match due to a lack of flexibility. It would be very dangerous for us to bring him to Bergamo. We hope he recovers on Wednesday. Cristiano's problem arose after the last game. He could not 'push' the way he wanted in training this week and we prefer not to risk it. The international community didn't help, he was playing a lot lately. Dybala will start, ”said Pirlo.
