Max Allegri has confirmed that Paulo Dybala will start Juventus’ match against Lazio and is ‘optimistic’ Gonzalo Higuain will be fit for Tottenham Hotspur.

Dybala is set to start his first Juve game in two months when Juve travel to the Olimpico on Saturday, but there will be no Higuain, who is still struggling with an ankle injury.

“Higuain won’t be in the squad, but Dybala and Buffon will start. Chiellini could rest,” the Coach said at a Press conference.

Max Allegri has confirmed that Paulo Dybala will start Juventus’ match against Lazio and is ‘optimistic’ Gonzalo Higuain will be fit for Tottenham Hotspur.

Dybala is set to start his first Juve game in two months when Juve travel to the Olimpico on Saturday, but there will be no Higuain, who is still struggling with an ankle injury.

“Higuain won’t be in the squad, but Dybala and Buffon will start. Chiellini could rest,” the Coach said at a Press conference.

“Higuain trained, but for London it’s too early to say, although we’re confident and optimistic.

“He’s in pain, otherwise he would’ve come to Roma with us. We’re not thinking about Tottenham. Lazio are the priority.

“It’s a game from which we want to go out with a positive result. Lazio in extra time against Milan? That won’t affect them.

“This game gives so much motivation. It’ll be very tactical. Attention and detail will make the difference.

“The best team must be put out. We’ve lost twice to Lazio due to making mistakes, they’ve grown a lot and Inzaghi is doing a great job.

“His team have physical and technical qualities and deserve to be the position they’re in.

“It’s always difficult to play against them, they give little away and are very good off the ball.

“My contract? I’m tied until 2020, I’m happy here and I don’t see why I should leave, unless a catastrophe happens between now and the end of the season.”
