Brescia’s promotion hopes have been dealt a blow after they lost Juventus-owned midfielder Ouasim Bouy for the rest of the season.
The Dutchman picked up an injury in a friendly on Wednesday and an MRI scan has confirmed the rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
Bouy joined the Serie B club, presently eighth in the standings, on loan for the 2012-13 campaign.
The 19-year-old was signed by the Old Lady in January 2012 after catching the eye in the Ajax youth system.
