In the half hour against Lecce, the exit due to injury and the request for help from his teammates, then the exit on a stretcher and the sentence of the exams: crack in the right knee
Anterior cruciate ligament injury. The verdict for Mattia De Sciglio comes immediately, from the belly of the Stadium already on the sidelines of Juve-Lecce, and is the most feared, for the 30-year-old Milanese winger: in the next few days, surgery will be required on his injured right knee in the half hour dueling for a ball on the right out with Banda from Lecce.
Minute 30 of the first half of Juventus-Lecce, a possession on the sideline to fight over: melee, but the problem is not contact with the opponent, it is at the end of the movement that De Sciglio writhes and falls to the ground. He touches the back of his right thigh, but it’s the knee that jumps. The comrades understand immediately, not only from his strong reaction, and call for a change and the intervention of the doctors: a couple of minutes on the lawn before going out on a stretcher, with his arms covering his face.
A very clear image, even if a first cautious dispatch is limited to not going beyond the knee sprain. The time to reach the J Medical and deepen the diagnosis. Fresh from the renewal until 2025 signed last June, his already troubled season ends here, with only 25 appearances in 49 games. But this isn’t a muscle problem like the ones that had held him back so far. It is the most serious injury in his career, the post-operative course will tell more.
