After being held at bay for nearly month, the Juventus midfield ace Denis Zakaria is set to make his official return to the pitch and be involved within Sunday evening’s Derby D’Italia.
In the Bianconeri’s 1-1 draw in a friendly match this week against Pro Sesto, the Switzerland international showed positive results on the pitch, indicating that he has recovered quickly from his muscular injury and is set to resume action potentially within the starting eleven of the Old Lady.
The Italian tactician is thrilled to have the 24 year-old holding midfielder back on the pitch as his current squad is currently down to the bare bones. As it stands, promising stars Federico Chiesa, Weston Mckennie, Kaio Jorge, and Luca Pellegrini are all unavailable for the huge blockbuster fixture against Inter.
A victory over the Nerazzurri would see the black and white of Turin climb into third above the defending Serie A champions with a total of 62 points, having played one game more than Inzaghi’s side. Obtaining all three points would permit them to be only seven points away from the league-leaders Milan, allowing the Serie A title to be well within their reach after a difficult start to this year’s Serie A campaign.
