Chiellini unlikely to be fit for Roma

Juventus have confirmed tomorrow's tests will evaluate Giorgio Chiellini's injury, but he's highly unlikely to face Roma this weekend.

The defender pulled up with a muscular problem during the opening minutes of Italy's 2-0 win in Ukraine on Tuesday evening.

Initial reports suggest it may not be as serious as a thigh strain, but still enough to keep him out of Sunday's showdown with Roma.

“The defender will undergo specialist tests tomorrow to evaluate his condition,” read a statement on the Juventus website.

Chiellini felt a pull on the back of his right thigh in Kiev.
