Paulo Dybala trained with his Juventus teammates today, for the first time since his injury.

The Bianconeri are set to host Tottenham Hotspur tomorrow night in one of the most talked about ties of the Round of 16.

There is talk Dybala could be on the bench for tomorrow’s match as he has now starting training with his squad again. This would give Max Allegri a viable option on his bench for the latter stages of the match.

Benedikt Howedes also took part in some team training sessions for the first time in months.

According to TuttoJuve, Uruguayan midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur could be the injury replacement for Blaise Matuidi who was injured in Juve’s 7-0 victory against Sassuolo last week.

Claudio Marchisio took over for Matuidi against Sassuolo and started Friday’s match against Fiorentina but Max is rumoured to want more of a physical presence against the English side.

Possible Juventus XI: Buffon; Lichtsteiner, Benatia, Chiellini, Alex Sandro; Khedira, Pjanic, Bentancur; Douglas Costa, Higuain, Mandzukic
