Pjanic avoids serious injury

Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic has escaped serious injury, and is expected to be back for the club’s Champions League clash with Lyon next week.

The Bosnian came on as a substitute against Brescia yesterday in the second half.

However Pjanic was only on the pitch for seven minutes before falling to the ground holding his groin.

The 29-year-old was immediately replaced by Blaise Matuidi.

It was first thought that the midfielder could’ve suffered a serious injury, and this morning Pjanic underwent medical tests at the J-Medical centre.

The club have now released a statement saying that the former Roma player has avoided any muscle damage, and has “a slight fatigue of the right adductor.”

Furthermore, the club’s statement revealed that Pjanic will be out of Saturday’s clash against SPAL, but that he should be ready to face his former side Lyon in the Round of 16 in the Champions League.
