Massimiliano Allegri reveals that Denis Zakaria and Giorgio Chiellini sustained injuries during Juventus‘ 2-0 win over Hellas Verona.

The Swiss international made his senior debut with the Old Lady, scoring the second goal of the night for the Bianconeri.

However, he was forced off the pitch shortly afterwards due to a slight injury.

The same goes for Giorgio Chiellini who was replaced after 30 minutes in the second half by Daniele Rugani.

“Zakaria picked up a knock at the lumbar, while Chiellini has calf issues,” Allegri said at a post-match press conference attended by Football Italia.

Both players are expected to undergo medical examinations at the J Medical this morning.

Zakaria joined Juventus in a €4.5m deal from Borussia Monchengladbach in January.

Juventus return to the pitch on Thursday hosting Sassuolo in a Coppa Italia quarter-final clash at the Allianz Stadium.

Their next Serie A match is away at Atalanta in a crucial fixture for a Champions League spot.
