CR7 and Juventus seek to beat Lecce to press more

There was talk of a black and white crisis when Juventus lost the Coppa Italia final against Napoli on penalties, but in Serie A the 'vecchia Signora' has now gone on to have a 4-point advantage over Lazio, from which they were one at a time. Series A resumed and appeared as the team most willing to stand up to the end in the fight for the 'scudetto'. But the ‘Laziale’ lost on Wednesday in the great duel against Atalanta (3-2). This Friday Cristiano Ronaldo's Juve also faces Lecce in Serie A and the great novelty is Gonzalo Higuaín, who may reappear. Lecce are third in line and the game presents itself to the Turinese as a good opportunity to put more pressure on their rivals.

Higuaín could reappear throughout the match

Everything indicates that Maurizio Sarri, with problems due to injuries to his left sides, will line up Blaise Matuidi as an emergency solution in said demarcation. The 'Pipita' Higuaín, absent in recent weeks due to muscle problems that made him miss the last games against Milan, Naples and Bologna, returned to training at the same rate as the rest of his teammates and could reappear throughout of the match against Lecce this Friday.

Sarri will put an attacking trident formed by Bernardeschi, Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo to the test to test Lecce, who is none other than the team that has conceded the most goals so far in Serie A, 60.

The 0-2 victory against Bologna and the defeat suffered by Lazio against Atalanta (3-2) have changed the picture in a Juventus in which it was said that their coach, Maurizio Sarri, was in danger.

The one who also stumbled on Wednesday was Inter (he let go against Sassuolo) and also lost 3 games to his defense Milan Skriniar, sent off against Sassuolo. The coach of the Black and Blue, Antonio Conte, is suspended for Sunday against Parma. Inter, 3rd, is 8 points away from that Juve looking for its ninth ‘scudetto’ in a row.
