There's talk of Pirlo being withdrawn after a poor start to the season.

"Pirlo will play and he'll be a protagonist," Juventus 'keeper Coach Claudio Filippi said at Vinovo on Friday. "Andrea is certainly available now and will be available, so I don't see any problems.

"How has he reacted to the rumours? Pirlo is a great professional. He's a really calm kind of guy and there is no problem."
