Buffon back for Juve after three months out

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is one of several first team players back to full fitness after being out for three months with a muscle tear in his right leg.

"Buffon, (Cristiano) Zanetti, (Christian) Poulsen and Hasan Salihamidzic are fully recovered. Tiago is on the way to being fit while (David) Trezeguet is ahead of schedule but will return to the group only when the surgeon gives the okay," coach Claudio Ranieri told reporters.

Trezeguet, who had knee surgery in September, will therefore miss Tuesday's friendly with Monaco in Messina and Sunday's home league game with Siena when Serie A gets back underway after a three-week midseason break.
