Unwell Buffon to miss Pescara game
Serie A leaders Juventus will be without flu-hit goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon when they take on bottom-of-the-table Pescara on Saturday.
Juve captain Buffon fell ill after his team's win at Inter Milan last weekend, and will be replaced by Marco Storari after a recurrence of the bug.
Coach Antonio Conte explained: "Storari will play because, after the Inter match, Buffon suffered a debilitating attack of the flu.
"After the [Champions League] match against Bayern [on Tuesday], the flu came back, he wasn't training well and I would prefer that he took care of himself and got better.
"If I didn't have the guarantee of a good 12th man [stand-in goalkeeper], I would have asked Gigi to play."
