Juventus forward Angel Di Maria suffered a thigh muscle injury on his Serie A debut and will out of action for at least 10 days, the Turin-based club said on Tuesday.
The 34-year-old Argentine international opened the scoring and set up another goal in Juve’s 3-0 victory over Sassuolo on Monday before he was withdrawn in the 66th minute.
“Di Maria underwent scans this morning … which revealed a low-grade lesion of the adductor longus muscle of the left thigh,” Juventus said on their website.
