Buffon at risk for Juve-Napoli

Gianluigi Buffon is still at risk for Saturday’s clash with Napoli, but Claudio Marchisio’s shoulder is not a problem for Juventus.

The two players picked up injuries on international duty this week and there are still concerns ahead of the 17.00 BST kick-off, which you can watch LIVE on your computer.

Goalkeeper Buffon missed last night’s 3-1 win over Denmark due to a thigh problem and today the official Juventus website confirmed there is bruising to the left thigh.

“His condition will be monitored day by day.” This suggests Buffon is by no means certain to feature in the Scudetto showdown.

Marchisio underwent tests at the Clinica Fornara and found “no important lesions” to the shoulder, so he will be able to resume training tomorrow.

Elsewhere in the squad, Mirko Vucinic returned from international duty with a slight flu and is undergoing treatment.

Simone Pepe is still training separately after a long lay-off, while Paolo De Ceglie is undergoing a separate training schedule after a left thigh problem.
