Juventus coach Pirlo wary facing Udinese - and Pereyra

Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo is wary facing Udinese today.

Pirlo expects Udinese winger Roberto Pereyra, for one, to be up for the game.

“We got back together for training on Monday and I saw a team eager to get back out there after a bad performance," Pirlo told JTV.

“It's a difficult game coming up, as Udinese are in a good period of form, are physical, organised and dangerous on the counter-attack. We've got to focus the preventative marking on their strikers and the midfielders who push up.

“We already know Roberto Pereyra well, as he was part of our squad here, so it's going to be a very difficult match."
