Juventus and Poland goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has a suspected fractured nose following a collision in the 0-0 draw with Torino.

The shot-stopper went up to punch away a cross during the Derby della Mole when Adam Masina landed on him elbow-first in an accidental coming together.

Play was halted for several minutes while Szczesny received treatment and he was clearly bleeding from the nose.

Reports suggest that Juve medics believe there is probably a fracture and Szczesny will be taken to hospital for X-Rays this evening.

If the veteran is ruled out, then Mattia Perin is ready to take over the gloves for the Bianconeri.

It would not be a great build-up to his birthday, as Szczesny is set to turn 34 on Thursday.

Striker Dusan Vlahovic was also spotted with an ice pack strapped to his shoulder after his substitution in the goalless stalemate at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino this evening.
