The Argentine striker comes from suffering back discomfort on Monday, before the duel against Lazio, and he will not be able to play against Udinese on Thursday.
Gonzalo Higuain was left out of the call for Juventus, for the game this Thursday at the home of Udinese that can consecrate the Bianconero in case of victory.
Wednesday’s tie for Inter Milan opened the door for Vecchia Signora to their ninth consecutive Scudetto and this will be achieved if they win at Stadio Friuli, for the 36th date of the A series.
Atalanta is Juve’s immediate pursuer, but a victory for the leader will raise the difference to nine points with the same amount to play. And since the advantage for the crossings between the two in the season belongs to those of Turin (triumph 3-1 in Bergamo and draw in Juventus Stadium), a triumph in Udine would make them unattainable.
The Argentine striker suffered back pain during warm-up in last Monday’s match against Lazio and does not appear to be in good condition after being left out of consideration by Maurizio Sarri.
Pipita scored seven goals in Serie A for Juve this season, with 11 of his 29 appearances from the bench. Thus, Paulo Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo is shaping up to be the offensive duo against the Zebras.
