Juventus defender Matthijs De Ligt is working hard to be fit for this weekend’s league clash against Lazio.
However, after carrying out medical tests today, it has been confirmed that De Ligt has not suffered a muscle injury. The 21-year-old Dutch centre back’s condition will be monitored daily, but it seems likely that he will start on Saturday in this very important Serie A clash.
The former Ajax man has made 21 appearances across all competitions so far this season for the Bianconeri, for a total of 1726 minutes. In that time, he has picked up five yellow cards and helped the side keep nine clean sheets.
Juventus are currently third in the Serie A table after 24 games, sitting on 49 points, seven behind league leaders Inter.
