Paul Pogba and Federico Chiesa have been forced to watch Juventus’ poor start to the season from the sidelines but they’re reportedly hoping to return in time to face Benfica.
The Bianconeri have had a rough start to the season under Massimiliano Allegri, losing their opening two Champions League matches and languishing in 8th in the Serie A table after securing just two wins in their first seven Serie A outings of the season. Juventus are in the midst of a slight injury crisis, having seven members of their squad sidelined, but things are starting to look up.
As reported by Tuttosport, Pogba and Chiesa are both working hard to get fit and are hoping to return in around a month’s time, when Juventus will face Benfica in the Champions League on October 25.
Their return would give Allegri’s squad a huge boost and injection of life following their sluggish start, and the club are hopeful to recover them just before the World Cup break in November.
