Juventus forward Federico Chiesa will be sidelined for the Coppa Italia quarterfinal against Frosinone due to a knee injury, but manager Massimiliano Allegri anticipates his return for the upcoming league clash with Sassuolo.
While Chiesa's knee condition is not a cause for concern, Allegri confirmed the unavailability of Adrien Rabiot, Mattia De Sciglio, and Moise Kean. Andrea Cambiaso, recovering from illness, is set to be on the bench against Frosinone, and Allegri faces a choice between Daniele Rugani and Danilo for the third defender slot.
Manuel Locatelli, suspended in the previous game, is set to return to the midfield, while the attacking lineup remains undecided among Dusan Vlahovic, Kenan Yildiz, and Arkadiusz Milik. Allegri, reaching his 400th match on the bench, emphasized the importance of securing a victory against Frosinone to advance to the semifinals in the Coppa Italia.
Frosinone, who eliminated Napoli in the last round, poses a challenge with their goal-scoring prowess, and Allegri acknowledges the need for Juventus to deliver a high-level performance.
The winner of the quarterfinal clash will face either Lazio or AS Roma in the subsequent round of the competition.
