Juventus, Dybala’s injury less serious than feared

Exams carried out and the results show a mild injury to the right thigh. 

Paulo Dybala limped off for Juventus in their 1-0 win over Cagliari last night but the injury sustained by the striker  is only a mild pull, according to the medical bulletin published on the club’s website.

After undergoing tests last night the injury is not as severe as the player and club initially thought and Dybala will only be out of action for a month at most, meaning he will be able to return on February 13 against Tottenham; the first leg of the Last 16 Champions League tie.

The injury Dybala suffered is similar to the one he sustained earlier in the season against Milan in October 2017, the injury then was to his hamstring whereas this time he has suffered an injury to his flexors on the same leg.

Dybala will certainly miss Juventus’ next matches against Genoa and Chievo after the two-week winter break. In addition to this Dybala will also miss the first leg of the Italian Cup semi-final away to Atalanta, Sassuolo at home and the Fiorentina game at the Stadio Artemio Franchi. The objective for Dybala is to return precisely for the Tottenham game on February 13, whilst maybe making a cameo against either Sassuolo or Fiorentina.

Dybala has been in fine form for Juventus this season scoring 17 goals in 28 games and providing 3 assists.
