The Argentine Paulo Dybala Spain’s Álvaro Morata, Juventus Turin strikers, will be out until mid-October due to muscle injuries suffered in the last league match against Sampdoria, the Turin team reported this Monday in an official statement.
Both Dybala and Morata underwent medical examinations on Monday’s Italian morning at J Medical, the Juventus-owned medical center, which confirmed their withdrawal from the club’s next two games, against Chelsea and Torino.
Morata, who scored three goals this season with Juventus, will also miss the duel against Italy on October 6 in Milan, corresponding to the semi-finals of the Uefa Nations League, if the verdict of the Turin team’s doctors is confirmed.
Juventus reported that “Morata suffers a low-level muscle injury in the biceps femoris of the right thigh, while Dybala” suffers an elongation “in the left thigh.”
Dybala, who had scored the 1-0 goal at 10 minutes, noticed some discomfort at 22 minutes and immediately asked coach Massimiliano Allegri for the change.
He left the pitch crying, although walking without the help of doctors, and was replaced by the Swede Dejan Kulusevski.
La “Joya”, who was only able to play twenty games last year due to a series of injuries, had scored his second goal of the season, after the first match against Udinese.
The Argentine was injured three days before the Champions League match against Chelsea, current European champions.
