Juventus are without Federico Chiesa and their South American players for the trip to Napoli, but Aaron Ramsey is back in the squad.

It kicks off on Saturday at 17.00 UK time (16.00 GMT).

The Bianconeri are decimated by injuries and absentees, as the late return from international duty forced them to leave behind the South American players such as Paulo Dybala, Juan Cuadrado, Alex Sandro, Danilo and Rodrigo Bentancur.

Chiesa picked up an injury while playing for Italy, joining Arthur Melo and Kaio Jorge on the treatment table.

Ramsey does return, but is unlikely to start, as he missed international duty with Wales due to yet another muscular issue.

Moise Kean is the favourite to play in a trident attack with Federico Bernardeschi and Alvaro Morata.

Mattia De Sciglio and Luca Pellegrini could be the full-backs, with Manuel Locatelli starting in midfield.

Juventus squad: Szczesny, Pinsoglio, Perin; De Sciglio, Chiellini, De Ligt, Pellegrini, Bonucci, Rugani, De Winter; Ramsey, McKennie, Bernardeschi, Rabiot, Locatelli, Kulusevski, Miretti; Morata, Kean, Soule

5 thought on “Decimated Juventus squad for Napoli trip”
  1. This should show the disparity in squad depth between Juve and the rest of Serie A. Juve’s “Decimated” squad has 4 Euros winners, the most expensive defender in Serie A as well as other established internationals such as Morata, McKennie, Rabiot..

    They have those players because they were the best run club in Italy over the majority of the last decade. It’s not their fault the other teams in Serie A are a whiny lot who do nothing to improve themselves.
    But Juve have been seriously on the wane for the last 3 years, so maybe we’ll see their domination ended for quite a while.
    This is the worst squad they’ve had for a long, long time.
