Juve face Napoli in Beijing in two weeks' time.

“It’s a shame that we are not playing the game in Italy,” the Azzurri midfielder wrote on his official Facebook page.

“However, I’m certain that even in Beijing there will be a lot of our fans who will charge us up with their affection.”

Juventus will warm up for that match with a friendly against Benfica on Wednesday. “We have to keep working to make sure that we are in the best shape for the Napoli game.”
