It is a matter of waiting if Paulo Dybala will be available for the biggest game of the season of Juventus next Friday against Lyon in the return match of the Champions League at 16.
Waiting for a week, with a positive or negative game, will be one of the most important things that Juventus fans will follow before the kick-off next week in Turin.
But there may be cause for some optimism while we are on the eve of Juventus’ Serie A final against Roma this weekend. This is thanks to a report by Corriere Torino (via VecchiaSignora) which states that the Juventus management team is cautiously optimistic that Dybala – who was stolen injured due to a thigh injury in Juve’s victory over the Scudetto against Sampdoria – has been listed as a present day, which obviously isn’t a great indicator of when he might actually be back on the field and available for Maurizio Sarri.
Sarri said on Friday during his pre-game that “Dybala is with the medical staff. They told me that the recovery process is going well, but I don’t know when it will return. “
This is basically the only thing we know that is outside of the “daily” diagnosis we received the day after Dybala’s injury. Maybe Sarri is pulling a Max Allegri and is very, very shy with what is actually the state of an injured player. You have to think that there is at least some skill in the game knowing that we are now a week away from the second leg of round 16.
But until we know for sure that Dybala is back to training, we can’t really assume he’ll be ready on time. For now, the only real option is to wait. And hope. Having any hope that one of Juventus’ most important players will be healthy for the biggest game of the season would be nice. This means that Juve probably has a better chance of moving forward. That would be nice too.
