Juventus defender Daniele Rugani appears in line to make his first start of the season this evening against Genoa.
Merih Demiral had been tipped to replace Matthijs de Ligt in Juve’s back four, but Calciomercato.com reports Rugani is winning the ballot.
That is because, as per the website, the Italian was tried out by Maurizio Sarri in their final training session on Wednesday.
The former Empoli stopper seemed to be on his way out of Turin over the summer, the signings of De Ligt and Demiral demoting him to fifth choice.
Nonetheless, he could have a rare – but no less important – opportunity to stake his claim in the Bianconeri’s XI tonight.
