Juventus must meet with bad news, Paulo Dybala, the center forward, hopes to have a muscle problem. Unable to help Argentina face Brazil in their World Cup qualifiers and will return to Turin tomorrow (Wed).
Dybala was injured in a collision with defender Jokin Piquerez. Uruguay and had to be substituted at half-time. Of the 1-0 win game on Saturday last.
News reports from Sky Sport Italia revealed that the striker shied away from the coneri. The pain has not improved and is not ready for the important match against Brazil this Wednesday morning. And will return to Turin immediately in the evening of that day.
Dybala will be assessed by the club’s medical team again. How severe was the pain this time? will be able to return to fit in time to meet Lazio League games this weekend?
It wouldn’t be an international break if we didn’t have to have one. Or two anxiety spikes because of a Juventus player potentially getting hurt while playing for his country, right?
And of course it had to involve Paulo Dybala because that’s just how things work.
Thankfully, it doesn’t sound like our anxiety will last all that long.
According to Goal Italia’s Romeo Agresti and Giovanni Albanese of La Gazzetta dello Sport. Dybala suffered what is being described as “a muscle overload in the calf”. And was subbed off at halftime of Argentina’s World Cup qualifier against Uruguay on Friday night as a precaution. Later in the same game, Juve midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur came off in the second half after taking a knock to his knee. But, like Dybala, it’s reported to be not as serious as maybe initially thought.
As Agresti ends the tweet below, “Both are of no concern.”
