Rome, March 30 (IANS) Juventus Coach Massimiliano Allegri on Friday said defender Giorgio Chiellini and winger Juan Guillermo Cuadrado had both recovered from their injuries and were available for the club's Serie A clash against Milan.
Juventus is finishing preparations for Saturday's game against Milan before getting ready to face Real Madrid in the Champions League quarterfinals next week, reports Efe.
"Chiellini is fine and will play, Cuadrado is in good shape and will be on the bench tomorrow night," Allegri said in a press conference.
"Tomorrow we have Milan who in the last 10 games, have won eight times and drawn twice, and have won their last five. It's still Juventus-Milan, a big match that will be balanced," he added.
Chiellini, who suffered a muscle injury on February 17, rejoined the group work on Wednesday and trained normally, just like Cuadrado, who returned to the squad's training sessions this week after being out for three months.
The Italian coach said that the trio Gonzalo Higuain, Mario Mandzukic and Paulo Dybala were performing better when playing together.
"Higuain and Mandzukic are both ready for tomorrow, they along with Dybala are becoming an even stronger strikeforce the more they play together," Allegri said.
Meanwhile, Allegri said that Juventus winger Federico Bernardeschi was to return to the club's training sessions next week.
