Tottenham handed huge boost ahead of Juventus clash

Juventus ace Paulo Dybala could be set to miss his team’s Champions League last 16 clash with Tottenham through injury.

“Paulo Dybala underwent an MRI this morning which showed a mild to medium strain to his right thigh flexor,” the Serie A champions said in a statement.

“He will immediately start rehabilitation with the prognosis for return better evaluated in the coming days.”

The forward had to leave the field during his clubs 1-0 win over Cagliari on Saturday while in distress and coach Massimilano Allegri has admitted that they are uncertain about the severity of the problem.

Juve are so far unwilling to give an estimation as to how long it could take the player to recover but this could be in the region of 40 days which could effectively rule in him out of Spurs first game of the Champions League last 16 clash with Juve.
