Juventus have confirmed the extent of injuries to Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata as the Bianconeri prepare to face Chelsea on Wednesday.

Both Dybala and Morata had sustained injuries against Sampdoria yesterday and underwent medical tests at the J Medical today.

Morata has suffered a “low-grade muscle injury of the hamstring in the right thigh”, while Dybala has been diagnosed with “an elongation of the semitendinosus muscle in the left thigh.”

Both players will return to action after the break, missing the next two games against Chelsea and Torino.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Morata could remain out of action for over a month, missing the games against Roma and Zenit, while Dybala could be available against the Giallorossi on October 17.

Dybala and Morata are Juventus’ best scorers this season with three goals each.

Former Everton striker Moise Kean is expected to start against the Premier League giants on Wednesday when they meet at the Allianz Stadium in their second Champions League group stage game.

Through their official website, Juventus released a report after this morning’s training session at Continassa.

“A new important week has begun for the Bianconeri, who, in a few days time, will take part in their second match of the Champions League group stage against reigning champions Chelsea on Wednesday at the Allianz Stadium. That will be followed by the Derby della Mole (Saturday at the Olimpico ).

“In light of this, the team met again this morning at the Training Center: recovery took place for those who played yesterday, while the rest of the group took place in fieldwork.”


Diagnostic tests were carried out this morning at J|Medical, and the results showed:

   For Alvaro Morata a low-grade muscle injury of the hamstring in the right thigh.
For Paulo Dybala an elongation of the semitendinosus muscle in the left thigh.

Both will be available after the international break.
