Bayer Leverkusen confirmed star winger Leon Bailey won’t face Juventus in the Champions League due to a muscle tear.
The club released a statement explaining the extent of the injury that he sustained during last night’s 2-1 defeat to Lokomotiv Moscow.
The Jamaica international went off at half-time and tests showed a muscle tear that will keep him out for “several weeks.”
It is therefore safe to say Bailey won’t be ready to take on Juventus on October 1.
Juve drew their opening Champions League group game, 2-2 away to Atletico Madrid.
