Italian Serie A champions Juventus have been rocked with the news that star forward Paolo Dybala could miss the Champions League clash with Manchester United next week.
Dybala, 24, picked up a knee injury during the international friendly clash between Argentina and Brazil on Tuesday night.
He ended up on the losing side after Inter Milan centre-back Miranda scored on the stroke of full-time to hand Brazil a 1-0 win over their rivals.
Former Palermo attacker Dybala is currently being assessed to know the extent of the knee injury he sustained during the Brazil game and is almost certain to miss the league game this weekend.
Juventus would be hoping to maintain a perfect start to the season when they host Genoa in a Matchday 9 clash at the Juventus Stadium in Turin.
The potential absence of Dybala for the Champions League game at Old Trafford is a big boost to an underperforming Manchester United side.
The Red Devils have already lost three league games this season and are playing catch up in the race for the Premier League title.
Manchester United have just 13 points from the first eight games in this season’s Premier League and are a whopping seven points off top spot presently held by rivals Manchester City.
