Juventus with more injuries

It is expected that McKennie will miss the Round of 16 Coppa Italia clash on 20 January against Genoa just as a precaution. After Monday’s medical examinations McKennie rejoined the group training ahead of their next match.

The 22-year-old has made a quick impact at Juventus since his arrival in the summer. In Serie A he has scored 2 goals, 2 assists in 13 appearances. The defensive midfielder has started in 9 games, substituted in 4 times and was left on the bench twice.

Another player that could be out for several weeks is Paulo Dybala, who also was replaced in the 42nd minute of the game against Sassuolo at the Allianz stadium. Juventus No 10 suffered a slight knee sprain and had to be replaced by Dejan Kulusevski.

The Argentine is expected to be out for 15 to 20 days due to the knee injury so he will not be available for the Serie A league game against Inter Milan on Sunday and the Supercoppa Final against Napoli on 20 January.
