Team news

Only Moise Kean and long-term absentee Mattia De Sciglio are set to miss Sunday’s season opener for Juventus, who have seen midfield duo Nicolo Fagioli and Paul Pogba passed fit.

In a familiar lineup, only wing-back Tim Weah is expected to make his Serie A debut for the visitors, with Dusan Vlahovic and Federico Chiesa likely to be paired up front.

The latter has been involved in five league goals against Udinese to date and scored the winner in June’s 1-0 win at the Dacia Arena; meanwhile, Vlahovic netted one goal every 88 minutes last August, including a brace on matchday one of the 2022-23 season.

Though Destiny Udogie has joined Tottenham Hotspur, Christian Kabasele and Jordan Zemura both moved from England to Udine this summer and could play for the hosts against Juventus.

Despite intense speculation, Udinese have retained Beto and Lazar Samardzic, and the former scored in last week’s cup win over Catanzaro.

Brazilian forward Brenner, who bagged 27 goals during two years in Major League Soccer, joins them in Andrea Sottil’s squad after switching from FC Cincinnati.

The Fruilani are still without three men who suffered serious knee injuries last term: Gerard Deulofeu is set to return in mid-September, Kingsley Ehizibue will be back later this year, but Enzo Ebosse could complete his recovery from a cruciate ligament rupture in the next couple of weeks.
