Juventus forward Gonzalo Higuain is required to miss the Series A restart opening games after getting a physical issue in training, while Milan got an update on Zlatan Ibrahimovic ‘s progress after enduring an issue with the calf.
The 2019-20 Series A campaign is about to start again after the coronavirus pandemic, with the principal matches planned for June 20 in the Italian top-flight.
It’s shaping up to be a fascinating end to Italy’s season, with Juventus and Lazio practically in a dead heat securing the Scudetto. Perennial champions Juve lead the table on 63 focuses, however, the Rome club-which has n’t won the league under Sven-Goran Eriksson since 2000-is only one point behind.
Be that as it may, without a key man, Juve could be compelled to battle for the title after Higuain endured a thump in Thursday’s training.
Argentina’s international Higuain had a muscle injury pulled up. On Twitter, Juventus said his physical issue didn’t appear to be too genuine, yet it would be monitored throughout the end of the week.
They said: “Gonzalo Higuain endured a muscle strain in the back of his correct thigh during today’s training meeting. J Medical ‘s tests have precluded any sores, and his condition will be monitored in the coming days.”
Higuain, who went through the second half of last season on loan at Chelsea yet came back to the primary team picture following the move of ex-Blues manager Maurizio Sarri to Turin, scored five goals this season in 23 Serie An appearances.
Title rivals Lazio was also scared on Thursday, key midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic was getting a knee injury-however reports in Italy to say it’s only a blow and he simply needs to rest for two or three days.
