Vincenzo Iaquinta will be out for at least three weeks after suffering a knee injury, confirmed Juventus medics.
The striker has had numerous fitness problems in the last couple of years and spent much of the season on the treatment table.
Juve have only just started pre-season training, but Iaquinta already pulled up with a sprained right knee.
He underwent tests this morning that showed no lesions, but there was trauma to the meniscus ligament and cartilage.
“In three days there will be another test to determine the prognosis more precisely, but it will not in any case be inferior to 20 days.”
