Juve shot-stopper Wojciech Szczesny could miss out on Roma clash

Juventus shot-stopper Wojciech Szczesny’s status for the clash against his former side Roma later this month is in question.

The Bianconeri announced this afternoon that the Polish international would be unavailable for roughly three weeks due to injury, putting him in question for the August 27th showdown in Turin against Roma.

“Due to a discomfort felt at the end of the first half of the match against Atletico Madrid, Wojciech Szczesny underwent radiological exams this morning at J|Medical,” Juve wrote on their official website.

“Scans revealed a low-grade lesion of the adductor longus muscle of the left thigh. The player is expected to be out for around 20 days.”

Should Szczesny not recover in time, he’d be replaced in net by former Genoa and Pescara goalkeeper Mattia Perin.
