Lucas Hernandez could miss Juventus

Atletico Madrid could be without defender Lucas Hernandez for the Champions League clash with Juventus after a knee injury.

The first leg of the Round of 16 is to be played on February 20 in Spain, with the return in Turin on March 12.

A statement from Atleti confirmed Lucas Hernandez underwent tests today that showed a strain to ligaments in the right knee.

It is not yet clear how long he’ll be out for, but it is a blow so close to the Champions League showdown.

He joins Stefan Savic, Koke and Diego Costa on the treatment table.
