Juventus lose Barzagli and Chiellini

Juventus will be without Andrea Barzagli and Giorgio Chiellini for Wednesday’s Serie A game at Bologna.

Both centre-backs picked up injuries in Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Chievo which will leave boss Antonio Conte short of options.

Barzagli, who had played in every minute of the campaign, was taken off before half-time with a calf complaint.

Chiellini, meanwhile, finished the game with a calf problem but only because the Old Lady had already used all of their substitutes.

The duo will undergo tests on Monday, but La Stampa is suggesting that Barzagli will be out for around a week, while Chiellini could be sidelined for three.

Conte will now use Leonardo Bonucci and January arrival Martin Caceres in the middle at the Stadio Dall’Ara.
