Juve also lose Anelka

Juventus face Pescara without Andrea Barzagli, Giorgio Chiellini or Nicolas Anelka, while Gigi Buffon is benched due to illness.

The Serie A leaders are expected to completely rotate their squad for tomorrow’s match against bottom of the table Pescara.

Barzagli and Chiellini sit out bans, while Anelka has been given permission to leave the training camp “to attend to a family issue.”

Coach Antonio Conte already warned in today’s Press conference that Buffon will be on the bench because he is suffering from flu symptoms and a fever.

Marco Storari takes the gloves instead on Saturday at 17.00 UK time.

Arturo Vidal and Stephan Lichtsteiner are expected to start, as they are suspended for the Champions League quarter-final against Bayern Munich.

Juventus squad for Pescara: Buffon, Pogba, Marchisio, Vucinic, De Ceglie, Giovinco, Peluso, Bonucci, Padoin, Pirlo, Asamoah, Vidal, Giaccherini, Lichtsteiner, Quagliarella, Storari, Matri, Isla, Rubinho, Rugani, Marrone
