Juventus suffer fresh injury blow ahead of two crucial Champions League games in a week as Giorgio Chiellini limps off in training.
Juventus have suffered a fresh injury blow, reports Goal’s Romeo Agresti, with the Serie A champions having a busy week ahead.
Andrea Pirlo’s side, having been defeated by Barcelona in Turin, can scarcely afford to drop any more points if they want to have any chance of topping their Champions League group.
A win over Dynamo Kiev tomorrow is a must. But with all honesty, they will need to be beat Barcelona at the Camp Nou, potentially with a higher score-line than their previous defeat, if they want to qualify for the knockout stages as group winners. Barcelona currently sits first with 12 points while Juventus sits second with 9 points.
Goal reporter Romeo Agresti has revealed that Giorgio Chiellini, a Champions League veteran, has picked up an injury in training.
According to Romeo Agresti, the injury maybe alarming and Chiellini may not be able to compete in Juventus’ Champions League clash tomorrow. You have to think it’s touch and go whether he’ll be available for the game in Barcelona, too.
While his importance atleast in playing position is not what it once was, Chiellini will still be missed for such important games. He is a true leader, a true Juventus icon, a motivational icon even while at the bench.
