No Giovinco lesions

Tests have shown Sebastian Giovinco did not suffer knee ligament damage, but there is bruising and a tendon problem.

The Juventus talent was stretchered off in pain during Saturday’s 2-1 victory over Pescara.

Today the official Juve website confirmed tests had shown heavy bruising to the right knee and the collateral medial ligament, but no lesions.

Medics also found a small strain to the tendon of the femoral bicep.

“His condition will be evaluated over the next few days,” but Giovinco looks to be out of Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final against Bayern Munich.
