|Juventus’ injury problems continue to mount, as Stephan Lichtsteiner missed Switzerland training.
The Bianconeri have already lost Andrea Barzagli to injury this week, as he was sent home from Italy duty.
Now RSI is reporting that Lichtsteiner missed training yesterday with a calf injury, and is not expected to be fit to face the Republic of Ireland on Friday.
The Old Lady are not back in action until facing Empoli on April 2, but Coach Massimiliano Allegri has an emergency in defence.
In addition to Barzagli, Martin Caceres has been ruled-out for the rest of the season, and it’s not clear if Giorgio Chiellini will recover from his own calf problem in time for the match.
With Leonardo Bonucci and Alex Sandro suspended for the Empoli match, Allegri is left with Daniele Rugani and Patrice Evra as his only recognised defensive options should Lichtsteiner, Barzagli and Chiellini miss out.
