Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri doesn’t seem to be too worried about Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata’s injuries as he says the upcoming match against Chelsea is ‘not decisive.’
The Bianconeri won their first home game of the season against Sampdoria but lost Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata to injuries.
The Argentinean had scored the opener with a shot from the edge of the box in the first half before leaving the pitch due to a muscular injury.
Allegri confirmed that both he and the Spaniard won’t be available for the next two games against Chelsea and Torino and hopes they will return to action after the break.

Speaking at a post-match press conference attended by Football Italia, Allegri failed to release further updates about their injuries but suggested he is not too worried ahead of the game against Chelsea.
“We’ll see how to play against Chelsea without Dybala and Morata,” he said.
“It’s not a decisive game anyway. The key games for the qualification are those against Zenit.”
Both the Serie A giants and Chelsea won their opening game in the Champions League two weeks ago.
Juventus beat Malmo 3-0 in Sweden, while the Blues snatched a 1-0 win against Zenit at Stamford Bridge.
