Buffon to miss Pescara match with flu

Serie A leaders Juventus will be without goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon on Saturday for the team's match with last-place Pescara as the Italy international battles the flu.

Buffon felt ill last weekend after Juve's 2-1 win over Inter Milan and he will be replaced by Marco Storari for Saturday's match with Juve entering the weekend nine points clear of second-place Napoli.

The 35-year-old has started 28 of Juve's 30 games in Serie A this season, with Storari set for his third league start of the campaign on Saturday.
