No serious injury for De Sciglio

Juventus have announced that Mattia De Sciglio suffered no “serious injuries” against Barcelona, but he’ll be monitored in the coming days.

The full-back went off injured during last night’s Champions League defeat, and it was initially feared he had sprained his ankle.

However, the club has today confirmed that the Italian international has avoided any serious injury.

“Mattia De Sciglio had medical tests today to determine the extent of the injury he suffered last night against Barcelona,” the Bianconeri announced on their official website.

“The tests at J-Medical excluded any serious injuries in the affected area (the third distal of the right leg).

“However, in view of the short time since the injury, additional daily clinical monitoring, as well as additional checks will be required in the coming days.”
