Juventus lose Caceres to injury


The Uruguayan suffered the injury in the first half of the Bianconeri’s clash against Roma at the weekend and was promptly hauled off at half-time in his side’s 3-2 victory.

Subsequent scans have revealed the 27-year-old now faces a period on the sidelines.

“Martin Caceres underwent medical tests after departing Sunday’s clash with Roma due to an injury sustained during the closing stages of the first half,” said a statement on Juve’s official website.

“These examinations have revealed a first-second degree tear of the semitendinosus muscle in the defender’s left thigh. He is expected to be out of action for approximately four weeks.”
