The run-up of Andrea Pirlo to the big match against Roma began on 2 December, and continues at a forced pace. After the injury against Udinese (2nd degree injury to the medial collateral ligament), the  Juventus regista has not lost a minute and was immediately put to work with the Juventus medical staff. And now, just to try to be on the field on January 5 against Francesco Totti & C.has spent shorter holidays. Today will be already in Vinovo. 48 hours in advance of the date set for the restart of the whole team (including those that anticipate also Pepe and Vucinic).

The advance recovery will serve to Pirlo to continue the program after injury. Two days of custom full immersion, in case of positive feedback, will allow him to join the group. At that point the chance to see him to take center stage in the championship challenge on January 5, would always be higher. To Conte will serve a couple of workouts to see if the traffic lights will be green or yellow only. Should this occur the second hypothesis (yellow light), the Special One bianconero will rely at trim that has kept Juventus in top of the list last month. Yeah, Arturo Vidal, Claudio Marchisio and Paul Pogba ready to alternate in directing. Plan B possible thanks to the attention of Vidal, who in Bergamo has managed to not get a warning and the consequence to thwart the risk suspension for the first game of 2014.
