Argentine Paulo Dybala, forward for Juventus Turin, was left out of coach Andrea Pirlo’s list for Tuesday’s league game against Spezia, after still not recovering from an injury to the medial collateral ligament of the left knee suffered on January 10.
Dybala will miss the eighth consecutive game in Serie A, which was joined by four from the Italian Cup, the Italian Super Cup and the first leg of the knockout stages of the Champions League lost against Porto, in which he entered the list, but did not play.
The Argentine forward has not been able to compete since January 10, when the league game against Sassuolo was withdrawn. At first Juventus hoped to recover him in fifteen or twenty days, but the injury was more serious than expected, despite the fact that his coach Pirlo already stated that it will not be necessary to operate on him.
In this campaign, Dybala only played 16 games and scored three goals, which created notable offensive problems for Juventus.
Of course, Pirlo recovered for the game on Tuesday against Spezia the Spanish Álvaro Morata, who missed the Verona-Juventus last Saturday because he was weakened by a virus (it is not about coronavirus).
The Turin team is fourth in the table, ten points behind the leader Inter Milan.
