Gianluigi Buffon will miss Juventus-Parma on Saturday after he was diagnosed with a thigh problem.
The goalkeeper has been struggling with the muscular twinge over the last few weeks and also missed last weekend’s Trofeo Berlusconi against Milan.
He has now been diagnosed with the extension of a muscle in his right thigh, announced the official club website.
It is not thought to be a serious injury, but it is enough to rule him out of Saturday’s Serie A opener against Parma.
