Claudio Marchisio and Juventus breathe a sigh of relief, as tests show “no lesions” to knee ligaments.
The midfielder bravely continued for at least 10 minutes after suffering a knock to the right knee, as there were no more substitutions in today’s 2-1 defeat to Sampdoria. 
He eventually had to be stretchered off, but Juventus announced this evening that tests “showed no lesions.
“There is only a heavy bruise to the knee.”
It is great news for Marchisio, as ligament damage or even a sprain could have kept him out for weeks or months.
