Juventus will be missing midfield playmaker Diego when they travel to Udinese at the weekend.
The 25-year-old Brazilian had to come off in the first half against Atalanta yesterday as the Bianconeri carved out a hard-fought 2-1 win.
Diego underwent a series of tests this morning, which revealed he has injured his right thigh muscle.
He will now certainly miss Saturday evening’s trip to Udine, which could prove decisive in Juventus’s quest to finish fourth in Serie A this season.
To make matters worse, Giorgio Chiellini also faces a battle to be fit in time after complaining of an injury to his left thigh muscle.
The Bianconeri cannot afford any more slip-ups this season having already suffering 11 defeats in Serie A.
They currently lie seventh in the table, three points adrift of the final Champions League place.
