Mattia Perin is expected to receive his season debut in goal for Juventus against Sampdoria, resting Wojciech Szczesny.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport and Goal.com, Max Allegri has decided the time is right to rotate his squad and that includes the goalkeepers.
He probably would’ve made the switch earlier, but wanted to protect Szczesny after criticism for his recent poor performances.
There were serious errors at fault for costly goals against Udinese and Napoli, prompting a backlash from fans.
Szczesny improved and made a decisive last-gasp save in the 1-1 draw with Milan on Pierre Kalulu, while he was beaten against Spezia by two deflected efforts.
It seems that the pressure is sufficiently off the Poland international, so now Perin can step in and take over the gloves this weekend against Sampdoria.
That will then allow Szczesny to rest and recuperate ahead of the Champions League showdown with Chelsea next Wednesday.
