Juventus confirm Alex Sandro suffered a thigh injury while on international duty, but don’t offer a recovery time.
The left-back pulled up while training with Brazil, and was sent back to Turin for scans this morning.
There were immediately fears that he could miss the games with Milan and Real Madrid, and the Bianconeri haven’t offered a timescale for his return to the pitch.
“After having returned from the Brazilian national team training camp, Alex Sandro was given further medical examinations, which confirmed the extent of the injury,” a statement on the club’s website reads.
“The player has a muscular issue with his right thigh and will begin physiotherapy today.”
