Juventus team news: injury, suspension list vs Napoli

Sports Mole rounds up Juventus' latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Serie A showdown with Napoli.

Although he was not there to witness it, Maurizio Sarri got his first league win as Juventus boss on Saturday as his side beat Parma 1-0.

Giorgio Chiellini scored a first-half winner in the Old Lady's opening Serie A game of the season as Cristiano Ronaldo had a goal ruled out by VAR.

The former Chelsea manager did not travel to Parma as he is still recovering from a bout of pneumonia which will also see him miss this Saturday's game at the Allianz Stadium against Napoli, their closest title challengers for the past two seasons.

Carlo Ancelotti's team started the season in much more dramatic fashion, recording a 4-3 win over Fiorentina in Florence.

The game in Turin would have marked Sarri's first meeting with the Blues since he left the club to take up the top job at Stamford Bridge last summer.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Juventus' latest injury and suspension news.


Mattia Perin

Status: Out
Type of injury: Shoulder
Possible return date: November 24 (vs. Atalanta)

Perin dislocated his shoulder back in April and is expected to be out of action until mid-November, meaning that Carlo Pinsoglio will once again be the backup to Wojciech Szczesny.


Marko Pjaca

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

Croat winger Pjaca suffered his second long-term ligament problem in as many years when training with Fiorentina last season and is unlikely to be fit enough to feature for at least another six weeks.


JUVENTUS' SUSPENSION LIST

Juventus have no players suspended for this match.
