Juventus Striker Set to Miss Decisive Cup Clash With Lazio

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri will likely have to do without one of his strikers for the upcoming Coppa Italia semi-final clash with Lazio.

The Bianconeri picked up a possibly key 2-0 aggregate lead over the Biancocelesti after their success in the first leg, one of the few bright spots for Allegri’s side over the last few months. In Serie A, the Old Lady have won just two of their last 12 matches.

Lazio have started to find a rhythm under new coach Igor Tudor, winning their last two matches against Cagliari and Salernitana, and will be keen to take revenge on Juventus in the second leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final tie on Tuesday evening.

As reported by TuttoJuve, Moise Kean did not train with his Juventus teammates at Continassa this morning and is now expected to miss Tuesday’s Coppa Italia clash with Lazio, reducing Allegri’s options up front. Arkadiusz Milik is still working back to full fitness and seems unlikely to start.

Fabio Miretti may return but is still in doubt due to a foot issue, which has kept him out of the draw with Cagliari.
