The striker was stopped in the game against Monza, leaving the team outnumbered in the last 10′. Exams confirm the problem with the semimembranosus muscle of the left thigh
Juve finds Vlahovic again but loses Milik for a long time and consequently remains short of strikers for a while longer. The Pole stopped during the match against Monza, tried to grit his teeth for a few minutes but then had to raise the white flag, leaving the team down to ten in the final. The instrumental examinations at J Medical confirmed the bad sensations of the first hour: medium-grade lesion of the semimembranosus muscle of the left thigh. We are moving towards an effective stop of about 5-6 weeks.
Milik will miss the entire first part of the hottest moment of the Juventus season. Which has become complicated in Serie A due to the -15 in the standings, but it also comes alive in the cups. The centre-forward is the first major absentee announced in the double Europa League match against Nantes, on 16 and 23 February. In addition to Thursday’s Coppa Italia match against Lazio, he will also miss the league matches against Salernitana, Fiorentina, Spezia, Turin and Rome. To evaluate the return with Sampdoria on March 12, the recovery times will be clearer after the checks in two weeks. Meanwhile Allegri will have to fully recover Vlahovic, who has been blocked by groin pain in recent months, and will be able to give more space to Kean, who however does not like playing with his back to goal.
