Trofeo TIM Game Time Thread: Juventus vs. Milan, Juventus vs. Sassuolo

Joosep Martinson

Juventus have gone on their preseason tour of Asia and Australia. They've returned to Italy and subsequently a few days off before their traditional family match against the primavera. Now they have one last friendly before the games start counting for real this time next weekend.

Soon, folks, very soon. First there's a little matter to take care of at the Reggio Emilia.

Well, technically two, but let's not sweat the details about a round-robin tournament where games aren't even a full 90 minutes. But, hey, it's a chance to watch Juventus. And Domenico Berardi. He's pretty good, you know. Maybe Juventus should have brought him in this sum...nah, I won't go there. Not right now, at least.

Here is the complete 26-player list Max Allegri has called up for the mini-tournament against Sassuolo and Milan:

1 Buffon
2 Romulo
3 Chiellini
4 Caceres
5 Ogbonna
6 Pogba
7 Pepe
8 Marchisio
10 Tevez
12 Giovinco
14 Llorente
16 Motta
19 Bonucci
20 Padoin
21 Pirlo
22 Asamoah
23 Vidal
24 Vitale
26 Lichtsteiner
30 Storari
33 Evra
34 Rubinho
37 Pereyra
38 Mattiello
39 Marrone
77 Audero

Gigi Buffon, check. Giorgio Chiellini, check. Carlos Tévez, check. Fernando Llorente, check. Simone Padoin, check. Yep, pretty much everybody you would expect to be there — outside of the latest French mohawked man, Kingsley Coman — is in the traveling party. Hey, even Arturo Vidal — which is kinda odd considering he was supposed to be in Manchester a couple weeks ago.

(That last part, yeah, that was sarcasm.)

With two "games" to play in one night, I'll just go out and assume that Allegri will continue to tinker with his formations in this final tuneup before the season starts in seven days. Yes, that's exactly one week from today, folks. We're close.

Lineups for both Juventus vs. Sassuolo and Juventus vs. Milan will be posted RIGHT HERE when they become available. Let there be goals. And, more importantly, let there be nobody wearing a Juventus jersey getting injured.
