Chiellini and Amauri recover

There is good news for Juventus as Giorgio Chiellini and Amauri could both be available for the trip to Brescia this week.

The pair trained earlier today after they missed the 3-1 defeat of Cesena at the weekend.

Chiellini has been sidelined with a muscle problem since he pulled up in the warm-up ahead of the 2-1 win at Milan. Amauri missed Sunday's match with the flu.

Should there be no further problems over the next few days then the duo will be available for the Rigamonti game on Wednesday.

Chiellini is all set to replace young Dane Frederik Sorensen, just 18, who played alongside Leonardo Bonucci in defence yesterday.

Former Arsenal full-back Armand Traore also trained with the squad today and could be named in Gigi Del Neri's squad.

Felipe Melo is likely to miss the game though after he limped out of the Cesena tie less than 15 minutes after coming on as a substitute.

Although tests have ruled out any muscle tear for the Brazilian, he could be rested ahead of the weekend's home game against Roma.
