Max Allegri could break with tradition and give Juventus youth team player Fabio Miretti his first start against Venezia.



It kicks off at the Allianz Juventus Stadium in Turin on Sunday at 11.30 UK time (10.30 GMT).

The Bianconeri are still in the thick of an injury crisis and are without Mattia De Sciglio, Juan Cuadrado, Manuel Locatelli, Weston McKennie, Kaio Jorge and Federico Chiesa.

Matthijs de Ligt is available again after a slightly issue and could start with Leonardo Bonucci in central defence.

Sky Sport Italia claim Allegri tested Miretti in midfield with Denis Zakaria and Adrien Rabiot, as Arthur Melo is available, but not 100 per cent fit.

Miretti is 18 years old and was added to the senior squad from the Juventus Under-23 team, which plays in Serie C.

He has already made two Serie A appearances for a handful of seconds and one Champions League cameo off the bench.

This would represent his first senior start in the Juventus jersey.

10 thought on “Juventus tipped to give Miretti a chance against Venezia”
  1. I don’t think Allegri is courageous enough to start a youngster. And even if he does Juve have little to play for because third place for them seems all but wrapped up.

  2. Yes mister allegri ..shake it up like you said some weeks ago. Miretti deserves a start in the light of all the midfield injuries.

  3. Arthur shouldn’t play even at 100% fit. Throw on Miretti or the ball boy… Makes little difference.

  4. Oh Dear, it’s Miretti from the first minute. So many false prophets on here. I wish him well because if he doesn’t play well, they’ll blame Max anyway for playing him too soon or out of position.
