Juve striker Sebastian Giovinco may miss his side’s Champions League tie with Bayern Munich with an ankle injury.
There is bad news for Juventus ahead of their quarter-final tie with Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Juve forward Sebastian Giovinco will possibly sit out the crucial match after he limped off the pitch during his side’s 1-2 win over Inter Milan on Saturday.
A bad tackle from Inter’s Esteban Cambiasso on Giovinco saw the Argentine receive a straight red card and the Bianconeri player had to leave the field with an ankle injury.
It was another important win for Juventus as they look to retain their Serie A title this season, but the celebrations were slightly muted after Cambiasso’s horror tackle on the forward.
“My ankle hurts and we are a little worried,” Giovinco was quoted on goal.com.
The victory keeps Juve nine points clear of Napoli at the top of Serie A after their nearest rivals secured a dramatic 3-5 win at Torino.
Antonio Conte’s men are now in pole position to secure their 29th league title with just eight games to go.
However, with Giovinco’s untimely injury there is of course concern for the Turin side ahead of the first leg against Bayern at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday.
Cambiasso has come out and apologised for his tackle on the 26-year-old and insists that it was completely accidental.
“I apologised and I hope Giovinco can recover for Tuesday,” the 32-year-old said to Tuttosport.
