thumbnail Hello,

Both players will travel with the squad to Beijing to face Napoli despite the prosecutor in the ongoing Scommessopoli case calling for them to receive lengthy bans

Juventus have announced their 27-man squad for their Supercoppa Italiana clash with Napoli in Beijing on Saturday, with both Leonardo Bonnuci and Simone Pepe both included.

Despite the prosecutor in the ongoing Scommessopoli case calling for the duo to receive lengthy bans, the Italian champions are hoping to field them against the Partenopei.

Bianconeri coach Antonio Conte has also been implicated in the match-fixing scandal, and could be barred from appearing on the touchline for 15 months for failing to report match-fixing acitvities.

The Serie A champions completed their preparations for the event with a 2-0 victory over Malaga on August 5, and will travel to China on Sunday.

Paul Pogba, who completed his long-awaited switch from Manchester United on Friday, will also travel with the squad while Michele Pazienza, who featured as a substitute against Malaga, has not been included.

Kick off on Saturday is scheduled for 13:00CET.
