Pirlo back early for Juventus

Andrea Pirlo has cut short his Christmas holidays in order to prove his fitness for the Juventus-Roma showdown.

The Italian international has been out of action since picking up a knee problem at the start of this month against Udinese.

According to Tuttosport, the former Milan playmaker will be at the Vinovo training centre on Friday – two days before the rest of his teammates are set to report back to Turin.

Juventus, five points clear at the top of the table, will entertain the second-placed Giallorossi on January 5.
