Both sides have been put through their paces on the training field ahead of the game, but are hoping to avoid any untimely loss of talent.
Juve’s playing staff have suffered no knocks as yet, but their manager did pick up a muscular injury during ‘La Partita del Cuore’, a benefit sporting event.
He left the field holding his right thigh and told Rai1: “Is this a joke? Absolutely no, I was having fun and I was injured, it's just muscular.
“You can try to challenge everything ... but not age!”
He is, however, now 49 years of age and more accustomed to donning a suit on the touchline than a jersey on the field.Allegri has shown himself to be particularly successful in a coaching capacity, with a Serie A title at Milan followed by seven major trophies in Turin and a second Champions League final appearance.
