Juventus have revealed they will be without influential midfield star Paul Pogba will be out for around seven weeks with a hamstring injury he sustained during Wednesday’s 3-0 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, The Guardian reports.
The former Man United man went off in the 26th minute of the victory over Dortmund, and now looks as though he will miss the side’s quarter final clash – and should they make it, their semi final date, too.
A club statement read: “Paul Pogba this afternoon underwent an MRI scan after coming off midway through the first half of last night’s Champions League match with Borussia Dortmund in Germany.
“The scan revealed a grade two myotendinous junction tear of his biceps femoris. He is expected to return to competitive action within the next 50 days.”
This could lead coach Massimiliano Allegri to switch to a three-man defence in Pogba’s absence – though with a 14-point lead at the top of the Serie A table they will feel they are adequately covered to deal with Pogba’s absence.
