Paulo Dybala In Tears After Suffering Injury In Cagliari Win
Juventus forward Paulo Dybala left the pitch in tears last night after he was forced off with an injury.
The Bianconeri won 1-0 away at Cagliari, with Federico Bernardeschi grabbing the winner in the 74th minute.
But they were dealt a blow as their talisman pulled up mere minutes into the second half with a thigh injury.
The Argentine, who has scored 14 goals in Serie A this season, was visibly upset as he left the pitch - even if the injury did not appear to be one that would keep him on the sidelines for a while.
Juventus have since confirmed that Dybala has suffered a tear to his right thigh and he will be assessed again in the next few days.
"The player underwent an MRI scan this morning," a statement on the club's official website read.
"It showed a distractive lesion to the right thigh flexors which, with caveats relating to the earliness of the assessment, can be defined as being mild to medium.
"The player will immediately start rehabilitative care and his prognosis will be better assessed in the coming days."
Initial reports from the media say that Dybala could be out for around a month, but fortunately for Juventus they now have a two-week break from competitive games which could speed up his recovery.
Max Allegri will no doubt be hoping his main man is available for selection for the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 clash with Tottenham.
