Barzagli out of Italian Super Cup

Andrea Barzagli ruled out for three weeks by a thigh strain, so will miss the Italian Super Cup Juventus v Lazio.

The centre-back suffered the muscular problem in his right thigh during the friendly defeat to Borussia Dortmund.

Today tests showed a first degree lesion to the adductor.

It will require at least 20 days to get Barzagli back in the squad.

This means he won’t be ready for the Italian Super Cup against Juventus in Shanghai on August 8.

Fernando Llorente is also a massive doubt for that fixture, as he's out of action for 10 days with a sprained ankle.

However, Sami Khedira is back in training after skipping the Dortmund game.
