Juventus confirmed that they need to cope without Danilo against Napoli and Fiorentina, as tests have revealed a hamstring injury in the right thigh.
Danilo was injured during the 3-1 win against Roma in the quarter-final of the Coppa Italia on Wednesday and had to go off after 41 minutes.
Today the Brazillian has been through some tests and revealed a “low-grade lesion to the semimembranosus muscle of the right thigh”, as stated in the medical report published on Juventus’ official website.
“In 10 days, the exams will be repeated to define a precise time of recovery.”
The hamstring problem will keep the right-back, who has filled in at the left lately, out of the next two games.
