Vucinic faces thigh scan

Mirko Vucinic will undergo tests on Tuesday after picking up a slight muscle problem for Juventus on Sunday.

The Montenegro international was replaced by Alessandro Del Piero in the 2-0 win over Cesena yesterday afternoon.

The striker, who is being used in a wide left position by boss Antonio Conte, is complaining of an issue in his left thigh.

Vucinic will have scans on the area tomorrow in an effort to understand how serious the problem is and whether he’ll be available for the Week 15 tie.

Juve’s next game is at Roma on Monday night – an encounter of significance to the 28-year-old former Lecce man.

Vucinic spent five years at Roma before he joined the Old Lady in the summer after a €15m transfer fee was agreed.
