Thu 09 September 2021 | 20:42

Juventus have confirmed Federico Chiesa is a major doubt for their crucial game against Napoli at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

The

Juventus

striker picked up a thigh injury during a training session ahead of Italy's World Cup qualifier against

Lithuania

and was quickly sent back to his club to undergo tests.

The striker’s injury is not serious but the medical staff decided not to take any risks.

“Federico Chiesa underwent a negative scan at the J|Medical this morning,”

the club wrote in a statement.

“However, as a precaution and in agreement with the technical staff, he will not be available for the trip to Naples.”

With Chiesa sidelined, Juventus manager

Max Allegri

could turn to either

Alvaro Morata

or the returning

Moise Kean

to start alongside

Paulo Dybala

in the attack.

Dejan Kulusevski

could also feature at right, in the absence of the former Fiorentina man.
