Cape Town - Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal was reportedly dropped for Sunday's crunch Serie A clash against Roma after partying into the early hours of Friday morning.
The Chile international was photographed on the streets of Turin around 5am, with the image, which was published in La Gazzetta dello Sport, showing him involved in an altercation.
Vidal then arrived late for training and was subsequently fined by the Bianconeri, who axed the 27-year-old from the matchday squad for the visit of the Giallorossi once they learned what he had been up to, according to the Italian newspaper.
Andrea Pirlo stepped in for his Juve team-mate and created the opener in the 3-2 win, with his free-kick leading to the first of two penalties converted by Carlos Tevez, following a handball by Maicon.
It was Pirlo's first outing since recovering from a hip injury, with suggestions that Vidal was being rested as a reason for his absence.
The Santiago native has previously been reprimanded for such behaviour, after being suspended by the Chilean Football Association in 2011 for 10 matches after breaking a curfew, while he also became embroiled in a tussle outside a local nightclub that same year.
